As a result, many of our clients experience:

♥ New levels of independence to start in the workforce

♥ Improved behavior at home and in school

PERSONAL TRAINING

All of our Special Strong trainers have passed extensive background checks and are certified trainers through NCCA (The National Commission for Certifying Agencies) which simply means they are the best of the best. Additionally, all of our trainers go through an accredited certification program, created by our founder and brain integration expert. We also understand that accessibility can be a challenge, which is why partnered with over 25 gyms in North Texas!

LOCAL BOOTCAMPS

In the fitness industry, boot camps are becoming increasingly popular. With the high demand, we decided to create an affordable adapted fitness boot camp program designed for the special needs population.  They get a mix of cardio, endurance, and core training with the added benefit of socialization with others. We got really creative and decided to call them “Special Strong Bootcamps.”

VIRTUAL NUTRITION

Using user-friendly software, our clients have the luxury of meeting virtually with our nutritionists!  Our nutritionists take a holistic approach with all of our clients. If you are looking for someone to simply give you a meal plan with calories and macro/micros, you have come to the wrong place. Our nutritionists are advocates of healing the gut and making lifestyle changes.  They believe that the gut is the "second brain." They also know the challenges that the special needs population faces and are equipped with the tools and education to overcome those obstacles.

THE FINE PRINT

Like most of the parents we talk to, you may be on this page thinking ... "all of this looks great, but could my child actually do this?"  We understand that concern, which is why we let you try any of our services for free for 14 days.  For our private clients, we do assessments every six months and progress reports every 90 days.  80% of our clients see progress with our program.  The 20% who do not see progress typically are defiant and resistant to authority and we refer them out to other professionals.  There are no contracts with our boot camps and you can cancel anytime.  We also have a 14-day satisfaction guarantee or your money back.  To date, no one has asked for their money back after the 14 days 🙂

HEAR FROM OUR MEMBERS

Inspiring words from our clients

“My child loves the boot camp class. He mostly enjoys getting out of the house-the social aspect of working, being around others like him. It is a good mix of balance, cardio, and strength. Surprisingly, my child works hard and doesn’t even whine when things challenge him. I’m very satisfied with the patient, knowledgeable trainers and challenging program.”

Christie J. (Erin)

“Really impressed with the quality of service and the personal touch. The team is committed to our sons overall health and wellness, and they work with our schedules to make it consistent and meaningful.”

Brent A. (Luke)

"Since starting Special Strong in 2016, my son, Robert, has fewer meltdowns and has developed more endurance for physical activity. Robert needed an outlet to manage his meltdowns and help with flexibility. He can now endure 55 minutes of physical activity and can finish his entire PE class at school! Robert’s teachers have told us how much improvement they have seen in his behavior and he is learning to listen and follow directions without my having to be there to ensure that he listens to his instructor. Robert also recently went to the doctor for his annual physical and for the first time he got a "perfect" report!"

Jennifer H. (Robert)

“Over the past two years, my son was diagnosed with several medical conditions. He lost so much physically, spiritually, and emotionally. As he began to heal, I knew more could be accomplished. I found a personal trainer and a nutritionist through Special Strong. They have brought life back into my son. Thank you, Special Strong, for giving me my son back.”

Karen W. (Josh)

“We were so happy to hear of a special needs bootcamp in our community. Our son is 19 and has autism and absolutely loves the Special Strong staff that leads the 2 classes that he attends. They are amazing and work very hard to ensure that he understands how to do the exercises and that he is following their lead to do them safely. He is learning that exercise can be fun and rewarding and we are very thankful!.”
