About Sensory Fitness


Sensory Fitness is a fitness program for everyone; however, it’s unique in that it specializes in working with individuals with ASD, SPD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and other neurodiversities! We use games, exercises, and challenges to promote health, increase whole body strength, develop body awareness, strengthen core, and improve whole body coordination. Sensory Fitness uses a sensory integrative approach and utilizes primitive and postural reflex exercises to help with gross motor, fine motor, and visual motor to build neural pathways needed for moving, learning, and living a well-rounded life!
