I have sight loss do you have any tips or advice for joining and using a gym?

The Cane and Able Fitness website has accessible fitness information and training programmes.

You can download a free Gym Acclimation Programme which gives you a step by step guide to using the gym and how to get started. You can also follow the blog for regular updates and tips.

Some of the advice includes:

  • Memorise the lay out of gym, so you know where things are
  • Use tactile clues to enable you to set your hands and feet in the correct position
  • Try and go at quieter times so there are less obstacles
  • do what makes you comfortable
  • go at your own pace and choose an exercise and programme that suits you.
