WHAT WE OFFER AND WHO WE SERVE
We will meet you where you are…
We design customized fitness programs for children and adults of all ages with special challenges such as a developmental disabilities that may include: Autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, and Downs Syndrome, and medical conditions such as Diabetes, high blood pressure, Scoliosis, MS, Stroke victims and Spina Bifida.
No Matter When You Begin…We Can Help!
Someone with a de-conditioned body will not want to travel or go to public places for fear that they have to walk too far or because they may need assistance using public restroom facilities.
When the body is not strong and flexible, especially as people age, they are likely to find that they cannot reach up into the top cabinets in the kitchen or easily get in and out of a car.
Eventually the individual becomes limited even further because climbing stairs becomes difficult and could restrict one to living on the ground floor.
Without daily physical activity, with each passing year, the human body becomes increasingly limited and the quality of life diminishes.
But no matter what shape you are in or how long you have been inactive, we will do our best to meet you where you are – with care, compassion and a sense of exuberance about fitness and utilizing our bodies regardless of individual limitations or challenges.
We will take you where you want to go!
Instead of giving into a lifestyle of inactivity, we believe that the right kind of fitness program encourages proper nutrition and healthy habits, fostering a strong mind-body-spirit connection.
We believe that everyone enjoys improved health and a sense of well-being with daily exercise and fitness training carefully and thoughtfully designed to address individual challenges.
