Exercising with Mobility Challenges

For people with mobility challenges, exercise is very important, because it helps strengthen muscles and improve balance. Try to exercise at least 150 minutes a week. Choose exercises with a minimal risk of falling and injuries. Start slowly with small intervals and light pound weights, and increase as able.
