What type of special needs athletes do we serve?
Each person is unique. Fitness 4 Focus is for individuals who are impacted by intellectual, physical, mental and/or sensory challenges that affect their ability to do certain activities. We provide services to those living with:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD) Emotional Disturbance Asperger's Syndrome
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Down Syndrome
Cerebral Palsy Intellectual Disability (ID)
Learning Disabilities (LD) Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)
Stroke Survivors Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
What ages do we serve?
We serve all individuals from childhood through adulthood. No matter what our athletes age is they are learning new skills, making new friends and gaining in strength, coordination, confidence and independence. Our younger athletes are introduced to our earlier intervention. Once they have mastered our early intervention curriculum they transition to our gym curriculum.
What type of training do our coaches have?
All of our coaches are trained by Fitness 4 Focus and have completed the Fitness 4 Focus training and behavioral certification before working with athletes individually. Many of our trainers have their personal training certification and others simply have a passion for working with individuals with disabilities and helping them reach their potential.
What progress do we expect from an athlete?
Not all athletes are the same but through fitness, our athletes are seeing themselves for their abilities, not disabilities. If an F4F athlete can not jump, we will teach them to jump. If the can run, they will run faster and farther. We will improve your athlete in their time frame.
What’s the cost of the program and how is it billed?
Our gym membership’s pricing varies depending upon location but generally the cost is b/n $35-$40/session, depending on the number of times an athlete comes per month. Our Fit Friends program generally cost b/n $17-$20 session depending on the location.
How can I pay for the program?
Our program is self pay, but some athletes use state and county funding to cover costs. Some families also use grants to help cover the expense. We’re happy to help talk through some of these options if they are available to you. The gym memberships are charged on a monthly basis and the Fit Friends Program is charged on a per “season” basis.
What comes with an athlete’s enrollment?
When our athletes enroll they will get a Fitness 4 Focus t-shirt and water bottle, so they are ready for each session when they come into the gym.
What’s the gym like?
The F4F environment is designed to improve our athletes daily life skills. Our gym is a structured environment where we can train our athletes at their pace. There are minimal distractions and there is a high emphasis on safety and creating a space that athletes love to be part of.
