Fitness for those with special needs.
The six-week program provides 18 classes, each with one-on-one instruction and structure to guide participants through fitness activities including a circuit style group class and strength training machines. Outcomes include improved endurance, reduced body fat and secondary risk factors, and improved cognition, social engagement, and self-image. Classes meet Monday-Friday at 3-4pm at our GHF Main location, 4820 Newberry Road. Read the Gainesville Sun article.
