Adaptive Gym Training Program Starts March 9

Thursday, 07 March 2013 10:24

Manhasset SEPTA’s adaptive program designed just for tweens and teens to learn about training at the gym is a great hit with the fourth season ready to start on March 9. The Meet Me at the Gym program piloted in Jan 2012 and was filled over capacity with 17 special needs middle and high school students. Returning in 2012-13 with a generous grant from the North Shore Autism Circle, the program is now accepting participants for the spring sessions. The program, offered free to all children 12 years old and up, is held on Saturdays from 4 -5 p.m. for six weeks in the Manhasset High School training room. The free program is accepting participants and ‘big buddy’ training helpers and welcomes all families on the North Shore and Long Island to join.

Meet Me at the Gym pairs special needs participants with big buddies as work out partners, while at the same time, teaching how to use all the gym equipment for an hour-long training session. Run by Power Pals’ adaptive physical trainer Chris Speziali, the program is custom created to provide vital knowledge about proper training technique while facilitating social interaction with workout partners.

As per tradition, the identities of the readers were unknown to the students until the readers walked through their classroom door, making this highly anticipated event even more fun and exciting.
