British disability sport charity LimbPower has launched its "Adaptive Fitness Fun" sessions twice a week to encourage fitness with young amputee children.

These workout sessions will be delivered by LimbPower ambassador paracanoe athlete and first amputee to win bodybuilding competition "Mr England", Jack Eyers.

The sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays as part of Sport England's #StayInWorkOut campaign, with Eyers focusing on fundamental movement skills, agility, balance, coordination and cardio for children.

The initiative comes during the COVID-19 pandemic, with more than 304,000 confirmed cases of the virus coming from the United Kingdom, resulting in the reported deaths of over 42,600 people.

Kiera Roche, chief executive of LimbPower said: "The mental and physical health of our children is paramount, particularly during lockdown.

"Jack's sessions will help children to get moving, improve their fitness and remain positive during these challenging times.

"As a parent myself, I know providing this structure twice a week will make a huge difference to children and their families."

Eyers himself is training to be part of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics team and with the Games delayed to 2021, has turned his attention to help young amputees in the UK.

He added: "These workouts will help children stay healthy and keep fit. 

"I am passionate about making each session fun and accessible for all, so I look forward to seeing you each Tuesday and Thursday!"

Each sessions is around 20 minutes long, with the first six workouts being available on LimbPower's YouTube channel.
