people with  walkers and wheelchaiir

“The question is not if one should exercise but how to exercise.” says Tammy Bovee, owner and an instructor at Creative Fitness. Bovee is offering a free workshop to individuals with neuromuscular disabilities and chronic conditions and disabilities in September. The workshop will address conditions such as MS, Stroke, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's disease, age or incident related physical issues, and those who are balance-challenged.

The free exercise workshop will be held at the Hilyard Community Center on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and will consist of three segments: orientation, exercise demonstration, and a question-and-answer period. Session presenters, Tammy Bovee and fitness instructor Deanne Morris, will debunk some myths about exercising with a disability, explain the benefits of increased mobility, and present practical ways for individuals to start exercising.

Tammy and Deanne will help participants more fully understand how to exercise with their disability. They will also encourage and motivate participants to commit to healthy changes in their lives through exercise.

For more information or to sign up for the workshop, please contact Deanne Morris by phone at 541-228-4237 or email her at

Bovee and Morris both have college-level education in exercise and human movement as well as training and/or certifications in Health and Wellness and individual and group fitness. They have more than 20 years of combined experience in working with individuals with neuromuscular and other limiting issues.

Creative Fitness provides an in-home personal training service specializing in people with disabilities.
