NCCA Accredited Personal Trainers

Every day, someone is becoming a personal trainer. Did you know that there are companies who that offer certifications for less than $100 and only require a weekend class to attend to be considered a “certified personal trainer”? A Special Strong trainer is much different. Here are some of the benefits you can expect to see by working with a Special Strong Personal Trainer:

1. Experience

There are literally millions of personal trainers in the world who work with the general population. However, very few work with the special needs population. All of our Special Strong trainers are NCCA accredited, have clean background checks, and have extensive experience with the special needs population. Our trainers work with the following conditions:

  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD)
  • Autism Spectrum/Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)
  • Intellectual Disability/Learning Disabilities (LD)
  • Amputees
  • Arthritis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Emotional Disturbance (depression, bipolar, etc.)
  • Paraplegia
  • Spina Bifida
  • Spinal Cord Injuries

2. Independence

Part of our mission is to empower the special needs population to gain independence. For some, that means being able to walk again, gaining strength, or losing weight to allow them to do more things on their own. A Special Strong trainer is able to provide you with strength and nutritional training which is designed to help you perform more activities on your own. This new found strength can add independence into other areas of your life. This has allowed many of our clients to hold part-time and full-time jobs where they were unable in the past.

3. Strength and Core Stability

In the special needs population, we have found that most of our clients lack physical strength, especially in the core musculature. Not only can this lead to more frequent injuries, but it often prevents them from being able to perform certain activities and maintain correct posture. Our Special Strong trainers are experts on posture, core musculature, and the best customized exercises designed to strengthen the core and gain strength. It doesn’t matter where your starting point is – we can help get you “Special Strong”!

4. Customized Workouts

There are so many different conditions and special needs, so there is no “one size fits all” approach. After our Special Strong trainer does their initial assessment, they will customize a program specifically designed with your condition in mind. You won’t get that anywhere else!

5. Stamina and endurance

With many special needs conditions, stamina and endurance are often lacking. Some of it is due to the condition itself while some of it is due to inactivity. By hiring a Special Strong trainer and participating in an ongoing exercise program, you can expect to see gains in energy, stamina, and endurance. Our Special Strong trainers know exactly how much to “push” and how much to rest in order to increase stamina and endurance

After reviewing the results from your assessment, your trainer will help you establish both short-term and long-term goals.

These workouts will focus on strength, stability, conditioning, and flexibility. For additionally accountability, we will encourage you to monitor your food and exercise intake using myfitnesspal.com or loseit.com.
