About Ability Fitness Center

Ability Fitness Center is a gym for people with disabilities. We are a therapeutic fitness and wellness center with expert clinicians and specialized equipment providing access to innovative, customized, and activity-based interventions that increase functional ability for individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, cerebral palsy, balance disorders, developmental disabilities, and other neurological conditions.

Become a Member

Ability Fitness Center strives to improve the quality of ‘life’ for the physically challenged with its dedication to providing accessible therapies tailored towards the special needs of those living with paralysis, stroke, Parkinson’s or other physical impairments.

What We Do

Our intensive recovery interventions are aimed at generating the greatest level of independence and recovery possible for people with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, cerebral palsy, balance disorders, developmental disabilities, and other neurological conditions. Our interventions are based on the expanding science of neuroplasticity, which states that the brain is able to reorganize itself with increased repetition of previously learned patterns.

Our goals at Ability Fitness Center are to help each client have an improved quality of life and optimal physical and emotional health; have maximum functional independence; improve flexibility, muscle strength, balance, posture, and bone density; decrease muscle spasms and contractures, while preventing complications related to more sedentary lifestyles for wheelchair bound clients.

Why We Do It

Ability Fitness Center understands that no two conditions are exactly alike and no two people respond the same way to exercise. As a result, we customize each fitness program for each client based on his or her particular needs and we continually adjust your program to ensure maximum gain. Our program is not designed to take the place of physical therapy or traditional rehabilitation; instead we have designed it to be an adjunct to them.

Our fitness center aims at creating a safe, welcoming, inclusive place for all individuals with neurological and developmental disabilities.
