Leading national adaptive sports organization Move United has launched a digital fitness platform called Move United On Demand for youth and adults with disabilities. The unique program, which is the first of its kind, provides adaptive fitness training classes with the help of celebrity adaptive fitness instructors.
Community-based adaptive sports organization Move United is racing towards a new technological chapter in its history. On September 20, the leading national company launched their digital fitness platform, Move United On Demand, for people with disabilities. This marks a superbly unique opportunity for disabled youth and adults to train, with adaptive fitness classes of all levels, wherever they may be.
On Demand can be used to help augment existing in-person workouts or to act as the exercise plan for those in need of serious adaptive fitness training class time. More than 35 classes ranging from HIIT to Yoga and Stretching can be found, with more to be added in the fall season.
Move United Executive Director Glenn Merry stated, “This is a first of its kind inclusive fitness platform designed specifically for individuals with disabilities. Move United’s On Demand fitness platform meets the athletes where they are and challenges them, whether they work out seated, need audio cues or recurring instruction. We believe that sport makes us more, and OnDemand invites every person with a disability to engage in that process.”
Move United partnered with The Hartford Insurance in order to make the digital fitness platform a reality. Known for its adaptive sports advocacy, The Hartford established their Ability Equipped program in 2019 as a means to empower youth and adults with disabilities and to assist in making adaptive sports and equipment more obtainable for them.
The first 1000 people to register for Move United On Demand will receive the program for free. The first 500 to register will also get a free “fit kit” with workout equipment included. For more information, head over to moveunitedsport.org/ondemand.
