Alive, Fit & Free was born out of a passion to bring a higher quality of life to clients with unique abilities who have not been catered to by the traditional health and wellness market.

Out of this passion, we created an adaptive fitness program specifically tailored to clients’ abilities, and primarily began working with senior residence facilities to offer a diverse range of classes to their residents. We have expanded to work with other communities and individuals with unique abilities and needs, whether in-person, through live video, or on a custom-made basis.

What is adaptive wellness?

Adaptive wellness is fitness and health that adapts to your abilities, whatever they may be. We believe that every person should have the chance to be the star of the class and that wellness is not done best in a one-size-fits-all model. We work with groups to create tailor-made classes for unique physical abilities, mental abilities, and everything in between. This allows every person to meet their wellness goals, and no more sitting out for certain exercises that weren’t tailored for you.

All of our programs encompass our core components and focus, first and foremost, on wellness.

The core components of our programs are:

  1. Community - A safe social environment to interact in a supportive community is key to combating loneliness and building motivation.

  2. Fitness - Physical fitness contributes hugely to overall wellness by releasing endorphins, improving health, and expanding lifespan.

  3. Mental/emotional well-being - Mental well-being is a contributor to overall wellness, and we strive to achieve mental well-being in our programs.

  4. Growth - We are on your journey. Define your goals and we will do all we can to help you reach them.
