Push to Walk is a nonprofit gym offering a specialized exercise program for people with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other forms of paralysis.
We offer very specific trainer-aided exercises and activities, called “Activity Based Training.” Workouts help our clients get physically and emotionally healthy, so if and when a cure or treatment is found, they are in the best condition.
Each client receives an assessment of personal and individual abilities, strengths, and goals by a qualified professional. Exercise programs are individually designed and continually updated and improved to stay progressively challenging. They focus not only on what individuals can do, but also on what they wish to do.
Research shows the many benefits of exercise for everyone, including people with physical disabilities. This forms the basis for why Push to Walk strives to help people:
- Maximize their physical health and well-being
- Work toward and achieve optimal function and independence
- Live life as fully and productively as possible
Through consistent weight-bearing exercise routines and electric stimulus aided activities, a person with paralysis spends fewer days in the hospital, has a stronger cardiovascular system, and actually develops increased motor functions.
Push to Walk’s trainers work hard to promote confidence and inner strength in each client. They encourage everyone to identify and embrace a good work ethic so they may see improvements in their daily lives. We complement our workouts with social programs and community events to keep our clients remain involved and motivated.
