Blind Alive

Eyes-Free Fitness® distributes digital audio exercise programs through a website and an iOS app for the iPhone that are both designed for 100% accessibility.
It offers access to a growing number of accessible digital audio exercise programs across different modalities, fitness levels, and interest.

People who are blind or low-vision may have a harder time participating in exercise due to inaccessibility or lack of experience. Eyes-Free Fitness® designs and produces together with certified trainers the only programs currently available that are specifically designed for people who are visually impaired or who do not want to rely on visual cues and visual instruction that is typical of conventional exercise instruction. People who are visually impaired do not enjoy the same level of access to exercise as sighted people. Eyes-Free Fitness® closes that gap.

Focused exercise is particularly important for people who are visually impaired.
