WINDHAM, N.Y. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation’s (ASF) Move Together Apart Virtual Adaptive Fitness program begins again virtually over Zoom tonight, October 10 from 5 p.m-5:45 p.m.
Tonight’s Move Together Apart session kicks off the first of four six-week programs that encourage participants to exercise at home. Each program consists of two 45-minute sessions per week, every Tuesday and Thursday evening. After the six weeks are over, there is a week off before the next six-week program begins. This will repeat until all four sessions are completed in early April.
Move Together Apart was started by the ASF to keep its participants exercising at home during the COVID-19 Pandemic. It was so successful, and the participants enjoyed the program so much, that the ASF decided to continue the live Zoom classes even as COVID restrictions began getting lifted.
Designed by Meghan Flanagan, a credentialed adaptive sport educator, the program consists of six-week consecutively building sessions. Each session will have a focus on exercises specific to seasonal sports the participants may be engaging in (i.e.: skiing, cycling, etc.) as well as core fitness activities.
Roger Hanson serves as the head trainer and host of the program. He’s a certified personal trainer who describes himself as “a big silly guy from Brooklyn”.
The ASF’s Move Together Apart Virtual Adaptive Fitness Program is funded via a grant from the J.E. & Z. B. Butler Foundation. For more information or to register for the ASF’s Move Together Apart Program, visit our webpage.
