Adaptive Fitness and Sports at the Y is designed to help individuals with all abilities reach their fullest potential through support and fellowship, as well as health, wellness and sport activities.

Members have the opportunity to meet with a fitness coach who will help the member set goals, design a personal exercise program based on individual needs and train participants to use adaptive or standard equipment independently or with assistance.

We work with people who have a variety of special abilities, including: Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Spinal Cord Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries, PANDAS syndrome, and Autism.
