What to Expect

We hope YOU will learn to LOVE fitness and physical activity as much as we do!

As a MOVE Participant, you’ll be part of a small group of Participants, and work closely with your Coach to help you achieve your fitness goals – whatever they may be.

You’ll be invited to 3 virtual activities every week – all year long (days and times vary depending on the program in your area). Join us for 30-60 minute adaptive fitness activities like:

  • Fundamental Series: Fitness Basics and Stretching/Yoga
  • Cardio Series: Dance, Circuit, and Bootcamp
  • Strength Series: Upper Body, Lower Body, and Core

A typical MOVE session starts with social time for Participants and your Coach, followed by a fun workout, and finishes with a relaxing meditation.

Once you have joined us for a month, you will be sent a welcome kit in the mail which includes a Participant shirt and some workout gear to make the most of your workouts.

Our long-term goal is to provide MOVE Participants with the skills to increase your physical literacy and build your own love of fitness!

Since fitness is more fun with friends, we would love for your caregiver to join in too!

Are you ready to COACH?

Did you know that youth with special needs often face additional barriers to participation in physical activity? Many typical youth programs don’t offer additional support – or the cost is prohibitive to families. MOVE has been designed to deliver a live online workout and to address a number of the barriers youth face in order to get moving.

MOVE Virtual Coaches are responsible for providing exceptional participant experience through adaptive and progressive workouts delivered over Zoom.

We will provide training on how to work with youth with special needs – if you have a passion for helping everyone thrive through physical activity and fitness, this could be the job for you!
