Our Approach to Integrating Physical Activity

  1. Tailored Exercise Programs:
    Knowing that each person’s physical and mental health needs are different, we develop personalized exercise programs.

  2. Group Fitness Classes:
    We host a wide range of group fitness classes for young adults that equally serve as an exercise class, a dual utility for socialization and exercising, improving mental health, reducing stress hormones, building community, and supporting more healthy habits in our clients. These physical fitness classes range from gentle yoga and stretching to vigorously intense aerobic activities like weightlifting.

  3. Education and Motivation:
    Our team educates clients on the importance of regular physical activity for maintaining mental health and social interaction with health and human services, offering motivational support to help clients integrate the physical benefits of regular, moderate exercise into their daily routines.

  4. Collaboration with Fitness Experts:
    We work with fitness professionals and therapists with specializations in mental health disorders and benefits by crafting workout programs that assist cognitive functioning while ensuring our clients receive professional guidance and support.
