The HME Victoria team recently visited MOVE Adapted Fitness and Rehabilitation in Victoria.
MOVE is a non-profit adapted fitness centre, located in Victoria, B.C. that serves people from the Greater Victoria Region. The centre welcomes children, youth, adults and seniors living with varied physical disabilities such as spinal cord and brain injuries, Parkinson’s, MS, cerebral palsy, arthritis, etc.
MOVE’s vision is to empower people with physical disabilities to achieve their potential and they are dedicated to addressing the needs of persons with physical disabilities through therapeutic exercise.
MOVE is obviously a place to come and exercise but the benefits are not limited to physical; MOVE is designed to invigorate every member’s psychological and social well-being as well. MOVE programs are specifically designed for individuals living with physical disabilities, filled with accessible equipment and staffed with trained volunteers who assist all members with their exercise programs.
They believe that all patrons who would benefit should have access to exercise therapy programs, regardless of finances, gender, age, race or ethnicity. Quite often individuals with physical disabilities live on a fixed or limited income, due to the nature of their disability; therefore, MOVE heavily subsidizes gym membership through personal donations and various fundraising efforts.
HME is grateful to have colleagues like this in the neighbourhood, their work helps those who need it most. Feel free to check out their website to learn more!
