Keep Your Body Fit! (2007)

This is one in a series of booklets prepared by the Calgary-based Vocational and Rehabilitation Research Institute (VRRI), an agency that helps people with disabilities as well as the community at large.

The authors describe the three components of physical fitness -- strength, flexibility, and endurance – and offer suggestions for improving each of those measures. They include a colour-coded plan the reader can fill in with fitness activities for each day of the week.

Part of the document is in the style of a workbook, with the reader being asked to fill in the answers to questions like "How do I keep my body strong?"

The material is easy to read. The document has many illustrations, including ones that show people in wheelchairs engaging in physical activity.

VRRI is now called Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research (Vecova): http://vecova.ca/.
