Making a difference with ENHANCED SERVICES FOR ALL ABILITIES
As one of the largest exercise science service providers in North America, GYMGUYZ offers many enhanced services that enable us to deliver effective exercise programs and life skills tutoring to clients of all abilities.
As an example for those living with autism, exercise has been proven to increase focus, develop communications skills, improve academic performance, increase safety (preventing injuries and harm), improve daily living activities, teach time management, increase self-esteem, and enhance community-relation skills to gain employment and build confidence.
In fact, in a study of over 700 autism families conducted by Arizona State University, exercise was the number 1 rated treatment overall.
