Unfortunately as of May 17, 2019 this program was defunded through the Recreational Sports Facility at UC Berkeley. We are doing everything in our power to help the program stay alive so please stay tuned, follow us on social media, and subscribe to our mailing list for updates!
Beginning in 2015, Kinley and Rachel started the No Limits Program at the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) at the University of California, Berkeley with funding from the Wellness Fund. This program provided increased access to RecSports facilities, equipment, and one-on-one training at no extra cost for students with mobility, vision, hearing, or invisible disabilities. The No Limits Program consisted of:
RSF 101- a 45 minute session introduction which includes:
A personal tour of the facility and the No Limits room
Information about how different equipment works and how to use it
An overview of the programs that we have to offer
One-on-one sessions with students who have disabilities. These sessions took place in the No Limits room at the RSF which is home to specialized equipment including Pilates machines (Trapeze table, Reformer, Springboard), a standing frame, and a Galileo. Rachel and several other trainers worked closely with these students to develop an exercise program to meet the goals of each student.
One-on-one swimming sessions. These session took place at one of the beautiful outdoor pools on campus with Rachel and include water exercises, swimming lessons, or simply getting a student more comfortable with being in the water
Teaching and training the athletic trainers on staff on how to work with students with a variety of disabilities to provide high quality exercise
Developing and expanding current and future programs for students with disabilities
Providing expertise to administrators and staff for how to best address the needs of students with disabilities
If you are a current student with a visible or invisible disability, contact Rachel (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any further questions. We would love to bring programs to your school!
