Interview with Karen Kyle from Disability Fitness Canada

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?
