Allternative Gym's Fitness Training Gym Membership

 

 

Allternative Gym’s gym memberships consist of a one-on-one ratio, with a skilled professional trained in adaptive fitness therapy for special needs children and adults. Depending on the patient's needs, the program consists of two hours sessions, two to three days a week. Gym memberships focus on strengthening and flexibility with the use of massage therapy, universal exercise unit, and progressive resistance exercises. The program gradually improves patient’s functional abilities and is ideal for special needs children and adults alike. All of this is offered just a short drive from Atlanta.

Our gym membership program is based on knowing the importance of strength training and maintaining our bodies in movement. To understand the role of strength in fitness and exercise therapy, one needs to understand that strength is the most important element of life. All human movement, from the blink of an eye to walking and running depends on strength and proper functioning of skeletal muscles. Each basic activity is based on strength; it is impossible to develop endurance, speed, agility, balance, or coordination without it. Research confirms that individuals with physical disabilities and or limitations respond to external stimuli such as strengthening exercises the same (neurologically) as a non-disabled individual. These findings allow us to use knowledge from sports medicine and exercise physiology to develop a new and effective fitness/exercise program. By creating an individual fitness/exercise program it helps not only to initiate movement, but also to control or inhibit it. The benefits of strength training include:

 

  • Increases postural muscle tone
  • Decreases spasticity
  • Helps prevent contractors/deformities
  • Improves trunk stabilization and control
  • Improves fine and gross motor skills
  • Improves balance, coordination, and movement control
  • Improves muscle endurance
  • Decreases involuntary movements
  •
