Positively Fit After Paralysis

November 1 – December 13, 2022

Tuesdays at 4:00pm ET

This is a 1-hour, seated, online class, which utilizes the upper-body and core muscles. It will include cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and stretching that is adapted for people with various levels of paralysis. The class is led by Jerod Neider, who has a C5 complete spinal cord injury. Since 2019, Jerod has been training to compete in marathons using a handcycle. He completed the New York City marathon in 2022 and is training to handcycle in it again in 2023. See his project, Positively Paralyzed, on Instagram and YouTube.
