Berkhamsted woman launches wheelchair workouts

The 25-year-old has launched 'Lockdown Wheelchair Workouts with Ella' on YouTube

Ella has always been a regular at the gym, so when we went into lockdown in March she wanted to continue maintaining her current fitness, but when she wasn't motivated by any videos she found she created her own.

Determined to turn the lockdown into a positive Ella launched her first video six weeks ago and not only are her videos getting hundreds of views, but she's been approached by disability charities and gyms from around the country, keen to promote home workout videos for people with impairments.

Ella Said:

"At the beginning of lockdown, I found very limited online exercise videos for people with impairments and the few I did were not very engaging or motivating.

I'm really pleased that my videos have had such a positive impact on the disabled community. My aim was to reach as many people as possible to encourage them and give ideas on how to work out at home without specialised equipment.

Through producing the workouts, I have found that lockdown has been a really busy and exciting time" 

Ella studied Sports Coaching Science with Disability studies at the University of Worcester and is a regular coach at her local wheelchair basketball club, and has played wheelchair basketball to an elite level, representing Great Britain at the Under 25 world championships.

The upper body workouts include a series of strength exercises, cardio and resistant band training. You can subscribe to Ella's YouTube channel here.
