On Saturday, November 12th, 2016 Athletes with Disabilities Network organized an adaptive fitness clinic hosted by Sweat Fitness, located in Conshohocken, PA. The purpose of the clinics is to provide disabled veterans, first responders and community members the opportunity to learn basic exercises that can be performed both at home and in the gym. The goal is for participants will see the value of these simple exercises and continue to them which helps to reduce some sedentary behaviors and decrease health risk factors.
Sweat Fitness owners, and staff like Director of Training Darrell Evans(Manyunk), DeeDee Mann (Trainer), Director of Training Breanna Henry(Conshohocken), and Kenneth Landon (Trainer) volunteered their time, because they understand the impact their passion has on others. None of this would have been possible if it was not for the kindness and generosity of the owners of Sweat Fitness. Their understanding that many disabled community members have additional expenses that can be overwhelming and costly, they decided to provide all the disabled participants with free memberships for 1 year. Grant information was also supplied to participants to provide opportunities for individualized training sessions.
Thank you to to all the trainers and staff at Sweat Fitness and we look forward to future clinics!
