ADAPT Advanced is calling all wheelchair users to join us!*

First, some questions…

   - How are you doing with the stay at home order?
   - Have you been able to consistently get good workouts in?
   - And most importantly, how is your body feeling?

We get it. This is a tough time as we are adjusting to the current situation. Most of our schedules and rhythms are out of balance, including our workouts.  

We also know the worst thing for any of us right now is to let “stay at home” mean “stay inactive”, which is why ADAPT Advanced is offering our new virtual SitStrong live workout programs for wheelchair users that will help you get stronger and feel better.

The SitStrong Program provides 30-minute workouts offered 3x/week:

*Some limitations based on physical ability may apply (see above for more information). 

If you are uncertain whether any of these programs will work for you, please contact Jerod Warf.
Thank you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below are some common questions about the SitStrong Program to help you decide whether this class is right for you...
Will the SitStrong Program meet my physical abilities and needs?
Through our nearly 14 years of training wheelchair users (including top Paralympians), we know that everyone has different fitness and ability levels. It is our goal to structure challenging workouts for you. If you want to elevate the intensity of our workouts, we recommend keeping weights accessible so you can quickly use them. We will also offer modifications during the workouts, so various ability-levels can participate.
What if I can’t make all the workouts?
We encourage you to join us for as many of the workouts that fit into your schedule. If you miss a live workout, we recommend that you perform the Shoulder Maintenance Routine 5x in a row for a 30-minute workout.  We are also recording each workout and will be sending it out so that you can perform on your own.
I am worried my shoulders won’t hold up – how can I avoid overuse and burnout?
To help your muscles recover and improve mobility after each workout, you will receive a complimentary Shoulder Maintenance Routine (both assisted and unassisted versions available). We recommend performing this routine 1x each morning and evening as your schedule allows.

If you are uncertain whether any of these programs will work for you, please contact Jerod Warf.
