It’s the start of a new year and many of us are thinking about ways to get fit and healthy in 2023. For those with dwarfism, finding the right exercise routine can be a challenge. However, with dedication and the right mindset, it is possible to achieve your fitness goals.

The DSAuk is on hand with our dedicated section on the website under the resource section. Here you can find Exercise Programs and Videos to help get you started. 

Are you a beginner, less mobile than you might like to be or are you a seasoned fitness buff? Whatever your level of ability or fitness, DSAuk have a variety of exercise programs and exercise videos that will help you achieve your goals. Each exercise program or video is available to either download or open on your screen to follow during your session with a variety of exercise plans to get some training in for the National and World Dwarf Games!

First and foremost, it’s important to listen to your body and know your limits before starting any new exercise program. This can help you develop a plan that is safe and tailored to your needs.

It’s time to find activities that you enjoy. This could be anything from swimming to strength training to team sports. Don’t be afraid to try new things and see what works best for you. It’s important to find an activity that you look forward to doing, as this will make it easier to stay motivated.

In addition to finding an enjoyable form of exercise, it’s also important to set achievable goals. This could be something as simple as walking for 30 minutes a day or working towards a certain milestone. By setting small, achievable goals, you can track your progress and see the results of your hard work.

Finally, don’t be afraid to seek out support and encouragement from friends, family, and the DSAuk community. Striving for a fitter and healthier you is no small feat, and it can be helpful to have a support system to help you stay on track.

Overall, getting fit in 2023 is all about finding an activity that you enjoy, setting achievable goals, and seeking out support. With dedication and the right mindset, you can achieve your fitness goals and train for the Nationals and World Dwarf Games in the process.
