With some usable vision, Arvin employs assistive technologies, including a magnification app on his phone, to ensure that clients are using the right weight for various exercises and keeping their form correctly during a workout.
He encourages everyone to look past his disability and see him as a person who has the same skills as any sighted personal trainer. Watch the video of Arvin’s interview.
