  3. Beast Mode

    “Beast Mode Fitness" is an exercise program for male and female teens/young adults with autism who want to learn how to become more physically active in their lives. The program seeks to provide motivated individuals with the opportunity to learn about personal fitness, health and well-being by building self-confidence through goal development and achievement.  

    The first session consists of a standard fitness assessment to determine baseline fitness levels. We also discuss goal setting. Based on your experience and goals, the head trainer will design a safe and effective, 12 week training plan to meet your needs - focused on strength development, aerobic conditioning, as well as flexibility and balance. The program is monitored and progressed based on feedback each session. 

    Each session will be lead by a certified trainer with assistance from volunteers. Although a ratio of 1-to-1 is our goal, ratios will be subject to volunteer numbers.

Train for Powerlifting

Have you been curious in training for powerlifting? Join us in this Train For Series as we take four weeks to focus on the squat, bench, and deadlift (SBD).

The next 4 weeks will be a continuation of the series for participants who are interested in preparing for a powerlifting meet along with a "mock meet" at the end of the series.
