Enable Exercise - Stage 1

Did you know that there are around 3.5 million people in Australia with a physical disability? This equates to around 15% of our population. Some of these people have had life changing traumatic events, confining them to a wheelchair and forever reducing their access to many places. 

These people might have been strong, fit and independent individuals who are now unable to visit their local gym, or have access to the equipment inside. It almost feels like there needs to be a gym especially catered for people with disabilities where they can attend and have full unrestricted access to achieve the workout they desire. 

At Enable Exercise we offer a fun and vibrant atmosphere which caters not only for people with disabilities but also people who are looking for an energetic yet rewarding workout. We do this by creating an environment which eliminates barriers and welcomes all people together to work towards a common goal. 

Annie suffered a C4/5 spinal cord injury on the 5th of October 2009 due to a car accident which has left her as a quadriplegic confining her to a wheelchair. Despite this Annie has never given up hope and continues to persevere and is determined to make the most of her potential.

 
***[UPDATE]***

We would like to thank everyone who donated and contributed to making this gym a reality – we’re proud to announce that the facility is already up and running at 4/105A Vanessa St. Kingsgrove just off the M5 and Kingsgrove Road, which is also walking distance from Kingsgrove Station. This gym has enabled us to give those with neurological conditions a communal space to access equipment to suit their rehabilitation needs.

We hope that this gym can enable strong-willed individuals like Annie a place where they can overcome the challenges and ongoing battles they face every day, as well as live independently.
