In this latest blog, I sat down to interview Karen Kyle from disabilityfitness.ca.
How Long have you been in the Fitness Industry?
“I started off as a Group Fitness Instructor at the YMCA 10 years ago and became a certified Personal Trainer in 2013.”
What was your background before getting into the fitness industry?
“For the last 18 years, I have worked as an Independent Living Assistant. Helping persons with disabilities, live as independently as possible within their own homes. I also worked as a deaf/blind intervener for 14 yrs. Both jobs gave me the experience I needed to specialise in my fitness training practice.”
Why do you feel that people with a disability have a decline in activity, motivational and individual peer support?
