The NeuFit Undercurrent Podcast

Apr 6, 2022

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP) at the age of 2, James Norris had a tough time participating in the sports he loved and wanted to play. At different times throughout his life, that also made it tough for him to fit in and have a positive sense of self. 
As an adult, he became dissatisfied with his physical condition and discovered fitness. As he saw the improvements in himself and got more passionate about the work, he decided to start Handi-Capable Fitness to support other people who were working to overcome various disabilities in order to play a sport or build a regular fitness practice. He now runs this 501c(3) non-profit and provides grants to others who are on the same path.
We had the wonderful pleasure of meeting James when he was speaking at the SXSW Conference in Austin, TX. In addition to sharing his story, in this episode James talks about the immediate impact the Neubie had on him by helping him get more wrist movement than he's had in years as well as increased activation of the muscles he knows he needs to activate for standing but isn't able to consciously recruit on his own. To learn more about his work, check out and enjoy this inspiring conversation with James!
