What is the Ability Fitness Center program? Ability Fitness Center is a unique gym allowing individuals with disabilities to continue ongoing exercise and conditioning to maintain and improve functional movement and abilities
How is your program different from physical therapy (PT)? Unfortunately most physical therapy is short term based rehabilitation due to insurance limitations. Ability Fitness Center focuses on lifelong progress. We want to help you stay healthy and continuously work to improve your abilities and quality of life. People with neurologic and developmental conditions often require extra time for progress, specialized equipment, hands-on assistance, and/or expertise to successfully continue their progress and build on what they learned in physical therapy.
