Special needs…

At Fitness Forever one of our most important underlying philosophies is that everyone has the right to experience exercise and lead a healthy life.  Many exercise programs and classes do not cater for people who have special needs nor do they have the expertise to develop programs specifically designed for these people who have physical or mental restrictions.

While our initial focus was chronic health, we realised there was so many more people we could help.  To date, we have now provided training to those with:-

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Dementia
  • Aspergers
  • Mental Health (Depression, schizophrenia, anxiety and stress)
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Heart Conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity

Many might think that someone who is in a wheelchair or suffers from dementia is not able to benefit from specialised training sessions, however we have worked with clients with these and all conditions above with amazing results and have surprised them along with their family members and support workers with their capabilities – we have the vision and believe anything is possible.

Below is an example of a session we have run with our lovely client who suffers from dementia which demonstrates how valuable our training is for her.
