Jo's Exercise Corner: How to use a Gym Ball (part 1)

Helping People in Wheelchairs to Stand

Not everybody knows that Ability Bow has a Standing Frame for wheelchair users. We have had it for a few months now after it was donated by a gym member who didn’t have the room for it at home. The frame actually belongs to Tower Hamlets NHS and we work in partnership with physiotherapists to induct new users and help support people to use it here in the gym.

43 Days to go until the Big Day!

"Welcome and Hello to our lovely Runners.."

Today we count 43 days until this year's London Marathon - the Big Day for our Team of 35 wonderful runners signed up to run 26.2 miles to raise money for Ability Bow. It is a big day for us too, we'll get up early and go to Greenwich Park to meet our runners at the Start and take pictures of as many of you as we can find.

Ability Bow Instructor Profile - Raz

In school or college you remain seated for so much of the day so I decided to take up different sports.

This massive event is not only vitally important to us for all the funds that it raises for us (£37,000 last year!!)
