We enjoyed a superb visit from Marcus of ‘Fitness without Boundaries’, a charity which aims to encourage those with mobility issues or limited physical ability to get moving and taking part in sports.
Marcus introduced us all to several low-impact games, including ‘Boccia‘ which was new to us all. Boccia is a precision ball sport, similar to boules, and is ideal for those who are wheelchair-bound, or who find a seated position more comfortable.
We had a great session, with everyone giving it a whirl and getting involved. We even saw a bit of competitive spirit coming out when clients formed two teams for a full on Boccia match. It was terrific seeing everyone so supportive and encouraging towards each other and Marcus was on hand to offer plenty of tips and techniques to help everyone get the very best out of the session. We look forward to more sessions of ‘Fitness without Boundaries!
