It is important for people of all ages and abilities to exercise regularly in order for them to lead a full and healthy lifestyle.

If you are disabled, there are ways in which you can participate in sports and exercise, whatever your disability. It may be that you want to try your hand at swimming, rowing, running, or cycling. Find an activity that suits you.

You may find that it helps to improve not only your health and fitness, but your self esteem and social life, too.

Contact your local community center to find sport and exercise facilities in your area that cater for disabled people.

There are many options out there. With the right facilities and some training you could find something you enjoy and excel at.
