National Disability Sport Organisation Cerebral Palsy Sport has launched a number of new resources to help everybody to stay as fit and healthy as possible at home now that being active becomes more important than ever.
Developed in collaboration with personal trainer and nutritionist Catherine Lineker BSc (Hons) Msc, these resources titled ‘Health and Wellbeing’ have been created primarily with regular Cerebral Palsy Sport participants in mind, but can be tried and enjoyed by everybody from beginners to family members.
Catherine Lineker held a seminar at the Cerebral Palsy Sport athletics and swimming training camp in October 2019, participants learning about the importance of different food groups, and when and what to eat for different stages of training and competition. Catherine spent 8 years as a full-time athlete in the sport of rowing whilst also completing her degree in nutrition. She specialises in those who require injury rehabilitation, nutrition guidance or who just want to keep fit.
Cerebral Palsy Sport recognised the demand for more information on not only exercise for those with a physical disability but also good nutrition at home for the CP community and beyond. The resources compliment Sport England’s national ‘Join The Movement’ campaign which evolved following the restrictions imposed during the Coronavirus pandemic, and uses the hashtag #StayInWorkOut The campaign has proved extremely popular and includes content providers such as Les Mills on Demand and Joe Wicks (The Body Coach).
The new resources from Cerebral Palsy Sport can be found on the Cerebral Palsy Sport website http://www.cpsport.org/resources/resources/health-and-wellbeing/ and the organisation will be encouraging the CP community to try, and share these ideas through its social media using the hashtag #StayInWorkOut
