It’s about what you can do.
Inclusive sports allow warriors living with cognitive, emotional, and/or physical impairments to engage in local community-based activities to help overcome both visible and invisible injuries. Participation in inclusive sports is a great tool for rehabbing and learning to thrive. Through sports and recreation, warriors can spark deep-rooted leadership skills and challenge buddies in some friendly competition.
Enhance your fitness, no matter where you are on your journey.
Making fitness a daily routine can change your life. Fitness activities such as run/walk events, dancing, crossfit, paddle boarding, cycling, and rock climbing are great for reaching personal goals such as weight management, physical endurance, speed, strength, and an overall healthier lifestyle. Best of all, they’re fun!
Fuel your body during recovery.
Nutrition plays an important factor in well-being, especially when making new adjustments. By focusing on nutrition, Physical Health & Wellness educates warriors about the four major foods groups, teaches healthy food preparation techniques, and provides nutritional knowledge to promote healthy choices. Just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good. A strong focus on nutrition can have lasting benefits.
Unite body and mind for overall wellness.
Wellness focuses on educating warriors about healthy lifestyle behaviors and providing opportunities to participate in physical activities that embrace fun, leisure, and recreation. Active engagement in activities such as smoking cessation education, meditation, stress management, yoga, and scuba, can unite mind and body for an improved lifestyle.
