Raise the Bar©

Labels are for Clothes, Not People

Fitness training is a singular experience and essential for youth and adults with physical and mental challenges to enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle. On Friday, July 25th the Right Fit Team (Kyle, Bradley and I) presented Raise the Bar© A Proven Fitness Program for Populations with Autism to members of the National Association of Multicultural Rehabilitation Concerns. We all agree that autism has multiple conditions, causes and clearly knows NO BOUNDARIES! We must keep in mind that individuals with autism are exceptional and motivated. This is why Raise the Bar©, a fun, success-oriented and play-based intervention provides structure and movement experiences necessary to address the health and fitness obstacles that affect this population (depression, diabetes, cardiovascular disease). As the numbers continue to grow (1 in 68 children is now diagnosed with autism), it is absolutely essential to administer programs that meet the many pressing needs of this population. We are excited to share our program and spread our message to as many people as possible.

Right Fit Presents "Ready Set Move" at AAHPERD Convention in St. Louis

On April 2-3rd Suzanne, Bradley, Linnea and Patrick traveled to St. Louis, MO for this year's national health and physical education convention to present the Ready Set Move Program. Ready Set Move is an innovative fitness and wellness program for youth and families struggling with weight gain and obesity. With the state of the art video editing of Bethany McGibbon, and the upbeat lyrics of Pharrell Williams' "Happy," waves of people flocked in our conference room to see what all the excitement was about. Creative and fun icebreaker activities got the audience moving early and hooked on the "power" of music as a motivator and the energy lasted the whole hour. This fun, energetic and motivating lecture demonstrated many techniques and attitudes needed to reverse what has quickly become one of America's biggest epidemics: obesity. This problem is growing rapidly and requires our undivided attention. The Right Fit team is forging ahead and hopes to create a DVD in the near future that will benefit many around the globe! The sky is the limit with this group!
