We create fitness and wellness programs for people of ALL ABILITIES
Hi my name is Jake. I am the founder of ZOOZ Fitness. We create fitness and wellness programs for people of ALL ABILITIES. Physical and/or cognitive challenges, lack of accessible environments, and lack of resources are just a few of the barriers that the special needs community must overcome on a daily basis, especially when thinking about starting an exercise program. These barriers lead to fear and anxiety, which we try to minimize with opportunities to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
WHY ZOOZ FITNESS?
I started ZOOZ fitness because I noticed that most of the young adults I worked with were living a very sedentary lifestyle. Long hours on the couch in front of the TV or an iPad were consuming there lives. Exercise for a lot of them was not something they had ever thought about. I wanted to help fight the growing rate of obesity within the special needs population and create not only adaptive and inclusive routines, but also routines that were active and more importantly fun! I have a background in personal training, sports, and martial arts. Movement of some kind has always been a part of my life and I wanted to share my passion and love of exercise with everyone!
5 Basic Movement Patterns
Our individual and group sessions are designed to build on the 5 fundamental movement patterns; pushing, pulling, rotation, single step and double step movements, but also to increase self-confidence, self-esteem, energy, and create those much needed social opportunities. We have so much fun during our sessions and we always leave with a big smile on our face. So come join the ZOOZ Movement! Check us out at www.zoozfitness.com
