WINDHAM, N.Y. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation’s Move Together Apart Virtual Adaptive Fitness program begins again virtually over Zoom tonight, October 11 from 5 p.m-5:45 p.m. and will take place every Tuesday and Thursday evening for six weeks.
There are four six-week sessions to this program. Starting tonight, the first session will go for six weeks. After a week-long hiatus, the second session will commence. This will repeat until all four sessions are completed some time in March.
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 or 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.
