Mental Health & Emotional Fitness
At the age of four, our founder was diagnosed with ADHD and used exercise to overcome his challenges. Our CBSE model takes a unique approach to the brain that helps conditions such as ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, depression, and other emotional regulation challenges. Our compassionate and experienced Special Strong trainers combine resistance training with brain training fitness to see incredible results for our clients.
Our Compassionate Trainers
Our caring Special Strong certified trainers represent the best in the industry. All of our trainers are NCCA accredited, have clean background checks and extensive experience working with mental and physical challenges. They're highly skilled in working with people of all ages who have autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and more. Trainers are experts at effective communication, including how to build rapport, minimize emotional triggers, and improve socialization with others. They also incorporate integrated brain training that focuses on science-based exercises that promote neurogenesis, allowing the formation of new neurological pathways to take place in the brain. Special Strong certified trainers provide full emotional support while teaching adapted exercises for individuals and groups in the safest, most supportive environment.
