I would like to acknowledge all those who attended the Autism and Special Needs Seminar at Moraine Valley Community College on November 16th. It was truly a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved. We always enjoy meeting others who are just as determined as we are to help individuals with special needs. Right Fit was very proud to participate in the seminar with a booth (staffed by Maureen Kiley Rhode) and a speaker, our own Eric Stone, CSCS, USAW, Director of Sports Performance.
If you attended Right Fit's presentation, you were able to learn about the benefits of strength and conditioning, specifically a class called "The Slider©" which is part of the nationally recognized Raise the Bar© fitness and wellness program. Eric discussed a typical class setup along with the benefits of the program for those on the autism spectrum. Base strength and conditioning is important for all individuals and it is important to understand how one can benefit from this type of training.
