Get SO Fit – Special Olympics Virginia

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-4

Tuesdays & Thursdays
6:30 PM – 7:30 PM | Simon Family JCC
Price: FREE

Get SO Fit is an inclusive fitness program designed to assist athletes of all abilities through education and exercise. The underlying philosophy of the program is that exercise and proper nutrition are challenging and beneficial to everyone, regardless of their physical or mental abilities. We believe that a fitness program can be fun and effective when group exercise is combined with individual workouts and a focus on healthy food choices.

The Get SO Fit approach involves three areas of focus:
Emphasis on small improvements over time, with athletes encouraged to be as strong, fast, and flexible as they can be.

Educating athletes on healthy food choices and portion control to facilitate positive changes in overall diet and overall health.
Consistency with three to five workouts per week of at least 20 to 30 minutes in length, presenting strength, flexibility and cardiovascular training in many different forms such as yoga, martial arts and dance as effective tools in keeping athletes engaged.

Class takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 pm at the Simon Family JCC’s fitness facility and fields. The program is free for JCC members, and there is an $4 drop in fee for non-members.
