Training with Tom DVD

£ 19.20

This DVD is the real thing. Real-life training on the mat with Dr Tom. He takes a stroke survivor through a training session (although an extended one in order to show you lots more things you can do). Starting with a warm-up, you will see the stroke survivor guided through a session where he is does first static exercises, gait control work, balance training, strength training and some seriou supper limb training. You will see how to put everything you've seen on DVDs 1 to 6 into practice – and you'll see a stroke survivor starting to work on the edges of his current ability in many areas, particularly when challenging his upper limb. This DVD is where many of the exercises, techniques and strategies will really come to life for you as you see how they work together, if practised carefully and with some dedication, to produce a trainee who is totally transformed in terms of action control, strength and confidence in the ability to move and function normally in society again.

    I’ve just started training to be an ARNI Instructor and these videos really help to bring the course content to life. Full of practical tips, drills and ideas, “THE SUCCESSFUL STROKE SURVIVOR” videos are an excellent resource for instructors and stroke survivors alike.

    As an ARNI Instructor in training I found this DVD really informative and useful. Seeing Brendan training with Tom and Gabby helps me understand how I can effectively work with stroke survivors in a safe yet challenging way. Seeing some of the functional limitations Brendan has, but how these can effectively be worked on by doing the techniques in the DVDs and stroke survivor book is inspiring. I actually met Brendan at a training day a couple of months ago and I can honestly say that his gait control and upper limb function had both improved and he did tell us that he is still practising most techniques on a regular basis.

    Good video. Well presented. I look forward to the time when you have a trainer in my area to assist me. Would have given it 5 stars but for the video quality. There is slight pixellation in places, which I would not expect in a DVD of this price!

    My husband Mark had a severe stroke 3 years ago when he was 40. He absolutely loves this DVD. He practises regularly and really feels the benefit from it. He first discovered Tom Balchin’s book ‘The Successful Stroke Survivor’ when he was in rehab at Headley Court and it instantly struck a chord with him. For people who really want to work to get the best recovery they can, then these are the DVDs and the book to get. We cannot recommend them enough. From techniques to help you get onto your knees and back up again to helping you get your hamstrings firing and ideas to help you get your hand working again. Tom covers all this and more.

    I am a stroke survivor and agree with the statement that, “knowledge is power” and this video plus all those that accompany this in Tom’s collection deliver that specific knowledge that a stroke survivor needs. This video like all in the collection inspire and provide the variety and “make it fun & interesting”style in your exercises to help you keep your rehab progressing.
