Pediatric Fitness Training

This program was developed for  children with special needs who have  developmental and gross motor impairments which impede their ability to achieve physical fitness.  We believe that promotion of lifelong habits of  physical activity in childhood will have direct and  indirect effects on health and prevention of  disease in adulthood.

Our goal is to help children improve their overall physical fitness. Improved endurance, strength and flexibility can be utilized to achieve greater independence and ease with their  daily activities.

Components to fitness include:

Cardiovascular Endurance - improved working capacity; reduced fatigue and risk of coronary disease
Muscular Strength and Endurance - improved capacity for lifting/carrying and optimizes posture
Flexibility - enhanced functional capacity for bending and twisting; reduced risk of back pain
Body composition - reduced risk of hypertension, coronary heart disease, and diabetes
