Special-Fit is a fitness-based program for individuals of all abilities. Our program was created out of the awareness that the fitness industry, school systems, and community based programs are not delivering the type of opportunities necessary to meet the fitness needs of all people. Unfortunately, this is especially true for individuals with special needs such as autism and related disorders.
Special-Fit is based on principles of human movement, human capacity, and physical literacy, while taking into consideration individual differences. This includes differences in age, physical thresholds, neurological diversity, behavioral challenges, socio-emotional development, communication and learning styles, motivation, and everything else that makes us unique as human beings.
Special-Fit aims to improve the quality of life for individuals with special needs through the development of relationships, the implementation of functional fitness, and integration into the culture built and cultivated within the walls of a gym environment. We believe that when you bring together individuals who do not believe in limitations, all things are possible.
Our mission is to shift the current paradigm that is producing an astounding rise in disease and to create a new way of thinking that will greatly enhance the lifestyle of people with special needs.
Today's statistics show that type 2 diabetes and obesity are on the rise in children, and rising almost twice as fast in children with autism. By keeping kids fit, we hope to intervene and prevent these health issues and create a more positive, confident, and able-bodied person. Our goal is to create a program that will greatly enhance longevity and elevate the quality of physical activity throughout all stages of a person’s lifetime.
Whether they want to participate in sports, improve their ability to focus in the classroom, type faster to communicate, feel more connected to their body, or just be healthier in general, we want to provide the opportunity for all individuals to become healthier and fit.
Our founder created the affiliate program to share our methods with parents and professionals who share a passion for fitness and making it accessible to people of all abilities. The vision was to create an environment where anyone can participate in a healthy lifestyle. Our two-day seminar provides learners with foundational understanding of human movement, and our Fitness Implementation Model©, which includes strategies for teaching fitness in a safe and effective way.
