Thomas Edison’s Nephew Offers 1st Captioned Fitness for People with Hearing Loss
Inventor of the motion picture camera, Thomas Edison paved the way for his nephew to pioneer captioned fitness videos for people with hearing loss utilizing the latest technology with Amazon video on demand.
Deaf himself at age 14, Edison later predicted, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Glenn Edison Poyer stated, "Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews offers evidence based doctor reviewed and approved preventative exercise programs by a licensed rehab therapy practitioner to help the 40 million deaf and hard of hearing improve their health with low impact beginner to moderate workouts demonstrated standing and sitting." When asked why she offers captioning, Suzanne Andrews said, "I have a large patient base of people who are deaf or hard of hearing and no isn't an option when it comes to their health. People must have the option to remain strong, fit and flexible no matter what their hearing ability is."
With two deaf siblings, the CEO of Healthwise Exercise and series producer of Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews, Glenn Edison Poyer, realized there were no fitness DVDs specific to the needs of the deaf community. As a result, Healthwise Exercise took immediate action by making the popular series available to people with hearing loss. Beginning by turning three of their top episodes into captioned exercise programs, Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews offers three fitness titles for instant download at Amazon Video on Demand.
The titles inlcude:
Walk Your Way to a Healthy Heart 1 available at
Walk Your Way to a Healthy Heart 2 available at

Each download is considered a vote for captioned fitness with 100% of the proceeds going towards captioning and producing more fitness programs for the hard of hearing.
