Over 10 million young adults with disabilities are overweight. Faced with limited resources, lack of safe workout environments, and sedentary habits, these young adults are not getting the physical activity needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are so many conventional workout routines advertised in our communities. These conventional workout routines create "one" model for what fitness should look like. However, these models do not always work for everyone. The conventional fitness programs, services, and facilities in the community do not provide an opportunity for young adults with special needs to explore fitness and wellness. Young adults need to exercise their bodies and minds regardless of their disability or challenge.
ZOOZ Fitness changes the conventional model of exercise into an adaptive, inclusive, active, safe and fun fitness experience for young adults with special needs. ZOOZ Fitness workout routines are designed to build confidence, strength, and flexibility in addition to promoting social interaction, spacial awareness, and improving quality of life. ZOOZ Fitness develops, implements and provides fitness and wellness programs and services, tailoring each and every workout to the individual. These one on one and group fitness experiences create opportunities for young adults with special needs to push their body and mind to their limits and reach goals they never thought were possible. ZOOZ Fitness hopes to change the conventional model of exercise and make fitness accessible to EVERYONE!
"Working with ZOOZ Fitness has been a life-changing experience for our son. He looks forward to each session and afterwards proudly reports on his progress and accomplishments. ZOOZ has given him a new awareness of the importance of fitness and taking care of his body. He is also gaining the tools he needs to take charge of his own healthy lifestyle. Jake has a natural and intuitive way of connecting with people of all abilities so everyone learns and has fun. We couldn’t recommend ZOOZ more highly.”
