The Adaptive Athletic program was born from my desire to help individuals with impairments find a better life through physical fitness. Through my own training I developed a passion working with impaired individuals to solve their unique problems. I've created a space where anyone, regardless of their condition or level of income can come and learn. I work with individuals with anything from a joint pain to spinal cord injuries.
By day, I'm a personal strength coach and I'm available to work on a per hour basis to help you achieve your individual goals. We all have a huge potential to be better tomorrow than we are today. Contact me below if you are interested!
Online Coaches Seminar: Functional Training for Adaptive Athletes
We find that there are so many fitness professionals who want to train adaptive individuals but don’t know how to get started. There is a general lack of confidence in speaking with, programming for and coaching individuals with permanent impairments. As a result the population that needs the most help, gets the least. To bridge this gap, Dr. Theresa Larson DPT of Movement Rx and Max Conserva of Adaptive Athletic, have come together to create an introductory course for training this population. With thousands of hours working with adaptive athletes, we have distilled the practice down to the essential knowledge needed for any professional to get started.
This course will help any fitness professional make their offering more inclusive. It is designed for athletic coaches & personal trainers who want to open their practice to the impaired population. For rehab professionals who want to move from the clinic to the training room. And for group fitness coaches who want to incorporate the impaired population into their class programming. If you want to work with the impaired population, this is the course to get started. Register here at MobiltyWOD.
Adaptive Athletic Intro Class (Sat 11:30am - 1pm) [Free for all!]
Functional fitness can work for anyone regardless of physical disabilities. My Adaptive Athletics program focuses on individuals with permanent physical disabilities (or severe temporary injuries). We provide additional support and experience to enable impaired individuals to become comfortable with the fundamentals of functional movement. This class is open to every type of physical disability: amputation, limb salvage, neurological damage, sensory impairment, joint replacements or TBI. With or without mobility aids (wheelchairs, hand crutches etc.). Whatever the case may be, the movements can be adapted to fit your situation.
The class is designed to be a safe place to experiment in pushing your current physical boundaries. We have a supportive environment where you can learn from other like-minded individuals in an effort to achieve your goals. Our goal is to take you to your next level of athletic ability, whatever that may be. From the basic goals such as better balance, decreasing fatigue and pain reduction; to more advanced goals like running, weightlifting and gymnastics. Everyone has the potential to be an athlete. If you are ready to work, we are ready to show you the path to a more full and active life. Contact me below if you are interested!
