From a media release:
New participants. New Paralympians. New mindset. AMI is proud to announce Season three ofÂ Mind Set GoÂ returnsÂ Wednesday, April 1, atÂ 8 p.m.Â Eastern to AMI-tv.
An AnaÃ¯d and AMI production in partnership with the Canadian Paralympic Committee,Â Mind Set Go‘sÂ newestÂ eight episodes feature Integrated Described Video ensuring they are accessible to viewers who are blind or partially sighted.
The third season ofÂ Mind Set GoÂ follows eight Canadians living with a disability, debilitating injury or chronic pain as they transform their physical, mental and emotional health over a 90-day journey of body, mind and soul. As previously announced, lead expert Stephanie Dixonâ€”a 19-time Paralympic medalistâ€”and fellow Paralympians provide encouragement, insight and advice to help the participants face their biggest physical and emotional obstacles heads-on.
From legal blindness, obesity and high blood pressure to neurological disease, Season three ofÂ Mind Set GoÂ delves deep into understanding how negative sociological and psychological coping behaviours impact the participants’ health.
Each one-hour episode begins with a participant’s backstoryÂ and their struggles to adopt fitness activities while also working on their spiritual well-being. Each participant is there for a reasonâ€”whether it’s a need to build strength, gain independence or overcome feelings of low self-worth, they are all uniquely positioned to make a positive change to achieve optimal health. To bookend their journey, each sets a physically demanding goal to illustrate how their lives and attitudes have progressed after three months.
The Paralympians and athletes joiningÂ Stephanie DixonÂ include:
- Michael Frogley
- Michelle Stilwell
- Jessica Tuomela
- Adam Purdy
- Michelle Salt
- Richard Peter
- Pamela LeJean
- Shira Stanfield
Season three ofÂ Mind Set GoÂ premieresÂ Wednesday, April 1, atÂ 8 p.m.Â Eastern on AMI-tv. The complete first two seasons ofÂ Mind Set GoÂ are available to stream online at AMI.ca or on the AMI-tv App.
The series is developed and produced by AnaÃ¯d Productions in association with Accessible Media Inc., with the participation of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, Canada Media Fund, Rogers Telefund, CHEK-TV and the Province of British Columbia Film Incentive BC. Assistance was also provided by the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit.
