NO. We have thousands of members that are at all levels of MS whether relapsing remitting, primary progressive, etc. with a wide variety of mobility levels and symptoms. Our programs are designed for everyone and you can perform any of the many Training Methods either standing or seated. You should however be cleared by your neurologist, GP or PT to exercise.
The many Training Methods are designed to be performed using inexpensive but effective resistance bands with handles, a door anchor and leg straps. A complete set of bands with door anchor and leg straps are available through this website at a low cost. Exercise programs using NO equipment and don’t allow for resistance do not provide enough muscle fiber activation to be effective. DO NOT be fooled by these “functional” exercise programs being sold by non-MS trainers.
The program is designed to provide the most effective workouts. This is a 3 day cycle that has been created for effectiveness and not just to get you moving with NO long term benefits in overcoming MS limitations. You are going to spend between 30 and 60 minutes each workout depending on the body parts worked. You will take one or two days of rest after each 3 day cycle.
If you are not willing to put in the time and effort into a proper exercise program that is science backed in getting results for strength and mobility with MS, then this is not the right program for you. There are already MS exercise programs offered to the MS community that have dance moves and ineffective “functional” exercises which are minimally effective in getting ahead of your MS symptoms. The OptimalBody Training program for MS is NOT one of these programs and takes time, focus and effort.
This program and the many specific and unique Training Methods implemented were created by David Lyons, the ONLY recognized MS fitness expert with over 40 years’ experience in fitness who HAS MS for 14+ years. His program is science based and designed to create the 3 most important aspects to beating MS…neuroplasticity, muscle fiber activation and brain to muscle reconnections.
Those other MS exercise programs are basic cookie cutter exercises that do not challenge the MS body in the same way the OptimalBody program does. They are inferior and brought to the MS community by trainers who DO NOT have MS! These trainers may have a good education on simple exercise but they DO NOT know what it is like to actually overcome MS limitations like David Lyons does. David lives with MS like YOU do and has dedicated his life to helping YOU get ahead of MS like he has done using proven and successful Training Methods he has created that are unlike the other cookie cutter programs that provide exercises you can find for FREE on YouTube.
Lyons is the ONLY MS fitness expert acknowledged by his many accolades including his induction in the National Fitness Hall of Fame; his vote as one of the Top 100 Healthcare Leaders worldwide; his Health Advocate Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Arnold Schwarzenegger; his award of the Most Dedicated MS Fitness Expert 2019/2020 by both Global Health & Pharma and Global 100.
