    Hi @aaydelo
    Good to meet you. I have also replied to your similar post.
    Exercise has been proven to be extremely beneficial to people with CP. I attend a local gym that has personal trainers with experience and knowledge of disability. I have found that this has made a big difference to my overall experience and of course motivation!

    Hi @aaydelo
                           Thank you for your post, it sounds really interesting. I joined the local gym for a period of time and they designed a personal gym programme for me to follow. I also play wheelchair basketball there which is really good for both my physical and mental health as well as being lots of fun. As a child, I found it difficult to access disability sport but this is slowly changing as an adult. I also have an interest in how disability sport is implemented in the education system. Is there a particular sport you are interested in? Thank you.

    It might be useful for you to contact our friends at CP Sport to see how they champion inclusivity in sport and exercise.
