New England Adaptive is in the planning stages of running a pilot functional fitness program this fall in Arlington. MA.
The goal of the program is to promote functional fitness training for people with disabilities in the New England area.
Sessions will develop the participant's strength, flexibility, endurance, coordination, speed, and timing for the purpose of increasing mobility and the ability to engage in activities of daily living and recreational pursuits.
The program will be six weeks long. It will train a total of eight athletes with limb loss, SCI/D, and neuromuscular disorders. Each athlete will be be paired with a personal trainer and assistant. The program will be held twice a week for two hours per session.
More details will be provided as the plans are developed.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact Melissa via AdaptivelyAbledAmputees@gmail.com.
