Blink Fitness and Achilles International are developing content aimed at helping athletes with disabilities to prepare for the Virtual Hope and Possibility 5K/10-Miler, being held from July 18 to July 26.
Blink Fitness will be hosting a week of virtual workouts leading up to the event, as well as sharing content aimed to help all participants prepare. There will be special 5K training from July 13 to July 17 on Get Up and Blink, hosted by trainer Ellen Thompson alongside Achilles trainers providing descriptive instruction and modifications for those with disabilities.
Blink will also leverage the Blink app by creating a fitness collection dedicated to the event, it notes in a media release.
