TRPIL promotes self-awareness and self-knowledge as a means to a healthier lifestyle. Through mentoring, resources, and programs, TRPIL can help you learn more about healthier options. Better decisions in regard to both nutrition and fitness may help you avoid any secondary conditions, which could threaten your independence.
TRPIL’s Wellness Center is the launching pad for those interested in increasing their awareness of the positive effects of physical activity. We have universally accessible resistance training equipment and certified staff available to support your fitness goals.
Our gym has adaptive equipment that can be used by people with a wide variety of disabilities, like a rickshaw machine used for improving the strength of muscles used for transfers and wheelchair propulsion, gripping aids for enhancing limited grip or hand function when using wellness equipment, an arm-bike for cardio workouts, and Wii-assisted aerobics exercise and sports.
Dedicated Wellness staff will design a program that meets your goals. This is a free service that we offer to individuals with disabilities who are looking to live a healthier lifestyle.
Some examples of completed goals are: weight loss, smoking cessation, strength gains for transfers, range of motion improvements, and increased independence.
Wellness Home Visits
TRPIL’s Wellness program offers free health checks and home visits. Staff can discuss items with you such as your heart rate, blood pressure, body composition, and also put together an at-home exercise program using equipment or items you already own. Health checks take approximately 30 minutes.
