We start with step 1 . . .

It all starts with leading by example. Kids feed on encouragement and follow by seeing others demonstrate the way to go.

Physical fitness is imperative and can be started with something as simple walking up and down steps. No special equipment is necessary.

Eating healthy foods, in the right portions, is a matter of discipline and education and goes hand-in-hand with becoming physically fit.

DO NOT let what you cannot do

GET IN THE WAY of what you can.

~ John Wooden


Every child with special needs has the ability to improve their fitness. We help them find where to start and then help them work toward goals to maximize the the benefits.


Many factors can contribute to the nutritional deficits in our kids. Good eating habits can be complex for them, but it is vital that we do all we can to increase their nutritional health, lower obesity rates, and improve their daily living.


When we understand and know what to try, find what works, and learn how to move to the next step, we are a powerful force in establishing a more healthy lifestyle for our kids. It is imperative that parents get involved, stay involved, learn all they can, and set a good example.





Participation involves the kids and their parents on a regular basis. When we encourage, and push, and praise their accomplishments, no matter how small, we help raise their self-esteem and self-confidence, both of which foster a desire for continued success. When they realize just how much they are capable of doing, they do more! Parental participation is a parent’s desire to see their child become a healthier, more productive member of society.

You Can Do It, too!
