TIME™ - Online Exercise and Wellness Program for People with Mobility Challenges

  • Announcement

Through a partnership with Toronto Rehab’s Together in Movement and Exercise (TIME), the MS Society of Canada is launching a free online, weekly exercise program beginning September 23 and running for eight weeks.

With many recreation programs and fitness centers closed due to COVID-19, people with movement challenges are facing greater risk of becoming less active. Physiotherapists and occupational therapists from the TIME team at the University Health Network have developed an online version of the TIMEprogram, designed to encourage people with movement issues to keep fit and stay active while remaining at home.

This online program is curated for people with mobility challenges who are able to walk at least 10 metres (30 feet) by themselves, with or without a cane or walker, who want to:

  • Be more confident in their balance
  • Feel stronger and more active
  • Move with more ease in their home and community
  • Enjoy the many benefits of regular exercise

The program is led by exercise professionals and physical therapists, and will take place via the online platform, Zoom. Sessions include various fitness and wellness exercises curated to strengthen muscles in the legs and core, and improve coordination, agility, and overall fitness, with variations that allow participants to select challenges within their ability level.

Please note this program is available in English only.
