Cape Cod YMCA
West Barnstable, MA
This grant will help to underwrite the cost of two KRANKcycles to allow members that use wheelchairs to work out with a friend or exercise partner. Exercise partners help keep each other motivated, and hold one another accountable for workout times, increasing rates of attendance and success of participants. Working out with an exercise partner is particularly helpful if an individual is intimidated by exercising in a new environment, because having a companion helps to break the ice and can help to boost confidence. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338.)
