My son Maxwell is 14 and, in a wheelchair, full time. We have made it a point to make it to the gym at least 3 times a week this year. We were doing well last year, but he had surgery and then I had surgery and we weren’t able to finish the year strong. However, this year we are trying to focus more on a healthy lifestyle.
Getting to the gym is the hardest part, but once we get going, he loves it and when we are in a routine, he really needs it. I think it helps with his confidence and helps with his sleep patterns.
Do you have any thoughts what might be good for me as a caregiver to encourage and keep him motivated from your perspective?
Happy New Year! I wish you all the best on your goals. It’s an exciting feeling to start fresh.
