Adaptive Fitness Training
What is adaptive fitness ?
Adaptive fitness is personal training for those with disabilities. The workouts are adapted to the needs of the individual. These workouts might include strength training, stretching, Pilates, massage, core work, and cardio. Equipment that might be used are as follows: TX suspension ropes, Ski Erg, rowers, spin bikes, stability balls, ropes, free weights, cables, parallel bars, and an Easy Stand glider. The Perfect Fit is specialized in adaptive training for amputees and those with spinal cord injuries.
Why this program?
After experiencing a traumatic accident, life becomes very different. The world becomes smaller, friends disappear, independence is either gone or limited, and hope is feigned. At The Perfect Fit, I want to help my clients regain many of these needs. I want to give them a place where they can interact, improve their health, and have fun in a positive supportive environment that breeds hope and empowerment.
Do those without disabilities exercise at The Perfect Fit?
Yes! The Perfect Fit is a place for those with or without disabilities to come work on their health. I offer one on one or group training for all physical abilities in a friendly, supportive environment. I offer a free consultation to help you determine which type of training is best for you.
Who is a good candidate for adaptive training?
Previously active individuals who have experienced a traumatic event that has caused them to become a quadriplegic, paraplegic, or lose a limb.
Is it safe?
All forms of exercise come with a risk of injury, whether or not you have a disability. However, Julia will work very closely with you to make sure all exercises are as safe as possible and within the scope of your needs. As a safely precaution, you must have clearance from your medical provider to participate. Conference calls between you, your medical provider, and Julia are also encouraged.

Nothing is guaranteed. However, anything is possible. Benefits may include improved blood circulation, digestion, bone density, muscle strength, core strength, cardio strength, reduced muscle atrophy and spasticity, and pain relief. Adaptive training may also help decrease feelings of depression and anxiety while providing socialization and greater independence.
The cost is based on the needs of the individual and will be discussed at a free consultation. Scholarship programs might be a possibility for those in need.
This would depend on the individual. Two times per week for 1-2 hours is typical.
