Powered to Move’s mission is to provide fitness opportunities to people affected by intellectual and/or physical disabilities. Our purpose is to enhance their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and to keep making opportunities both physically and financially accessible.
We have three main programs:
1. Our Adapted Fitness program provides individual and group classes for people with any type of disability. We provide community classes throughout the year in a variety of formats including Adapted Bootcamps, Adapted Dance, Adapted Cardio Drumming and more. Individual training is provided on a case by case basis.
2. Our Wingman program allows persons with physical or intellectual disabilities who need assistance opportunities to participate in local running races – from one-mile fun runs, 5K’s to half marathons. Assistance is provided through able-bodied runners called Wingmen.
3. Our Handcycle program introduces people with physical disabilities to the sport of handcycling by providing individual instruction, opportunities to hone skills in group rides and to participate in local running and bike races as part of the Powered to Move Handcycle Team. Loaner chairs are available for rides.
