By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - The Cheyenne Family YMCA is proud to offer free to disabled veterans participation in our next VA Adaptive Sports Series.

Each six week session targets a different training regime. The next session, “YOGA & STRENGTH CONDITIONING / CORE & BALANCE” begins Tuesday, February 21st and runs through March 30th. Classes are Tuesday and Thursday from 1-2 pm at the YMCA.

Program is geared to those veterans who would benefit from adaptive sports exercise

We want you to know that no matter your disability, age or skill level, an adaptive sports opportunity exists for you. But, besides the fun, new friendships and exercise, why should you consider adaptive sports? Studies show that adaptive sports provide the following clear benefits for disabled Veterans:

• less stress
• reduced dependency on pain and depression medication
• fewer secondary medical conditions (i.e., diabetes, hypertension)
• higher achievement in education and employment
• more independence

Participating in adaptive sports allows you to redefine yourself and live an active, healthy and fun lifestyle.
