What is SitStrong?
SitStrong is dedicated to providing wheelchair based clients with the guidance they need to establish and
maintain a healthy body when they are unable to attend regular sessions at our facility. The ADAPT SitStrong
program is comprised of (2) two-hour sessions with an ADAPT Advanced Training Specialist who will work to
evaluate and establish the clients baseline physical abilities and functional goals. Following the 2 sessions the
clients are presented with an at-home training schedule and routines to help maximize goals.
Who/how did the fund help this past year?
With funds that were raised at last year’s fundraiser seven individuals were able to participate in the ADAPT
SitStrong program and get back into regular training programs outside of our facility.
Future Goals of the program?
To be able to provide a sound training program for wheelchair based individuals that is universally accessible —
regardless of insurance coverage, proximity to the ADAPT facility, training goals, physical (and functional)
abilities. This program is progressive in nature, and we would like to be able to offer it bi-annually to participants
so they have the opportunity to continue seeing progress and reaching their goals whether or not they are able
to regularly make it to the gym or come in for sessions with an ADAPT Advanced Training Specialist.
By securing enough funds this year, we would like to double the number of clients we are able to offer this
program to. This would allow us to expand the program to the general population and not just former clients.
