Fit Friends is designed for children and young adults with special needs who want to increase stamina and body tone. The program’s focus is on whole-body fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. Each participant is matched with a trained student volunteer.
The programs begins with a light, dynamic warm up that includes stretching. Each child then engages in aerobic circuit training and strength circuit training for each class. Exercise routines within the circuits are varied for each of the classes, which are offered once a week for eight weeks.
