Fit for Life and Sport Guides

Fit for Life and Sport Guides have been developed by the PHC and the British Paralympic Association as part of the Fit and Healthy project. This project was funded by The Coca-Cola Foundation.

The Five Fit for Life & Sport guides contain information on physical activity, exercise and sport, nutrition, and psychology and have been written for adults with specific disabilities: visual impairment, spinal cord impairment, amputation, cerebral palsy and les autres.

Each guide has been split into two main sections; Fit for Life is for those who do very little physical activity or exercise and want to improve health and fitness, while Fit for Sport is for regular exercisers who would like to improve performance or take their training more seriously.
