The IM FIT Inclusive Group Fitness Program: With the assistance of approximately 20 community volunteers, Physical Therapists from Reading Hospital’s Acute Rehab, and Occupational Therapy interns from Alvernia and Penn State Berks, we provide support and motivation for individuals with physical, cognitive, and/or behavioral challenges of all kinds to become comfortable with the fundamentals of exercise and basic movements. IM FIT empowers and encourages people of all skill levels. The IM FIT runs in 8-week cycles on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7 – 8PM at IM ABLE Headquarters in Wyomissing, PA.
These IM FIT inclusive fitness classes are free of charge for the kids and their parents, many of whom would be unable to take part were it not for your generosity. When we first started this program there was a fee to participate. Six or eight participants showed up each night. When the financial obstruction was removed, the walls here were filled with enthusiastic laughter. There are kids who say that the only friends they have are in this program and this is the only chance they have all week to see them. You make that possible through your support of IM ABLE.
Participants are encouraged to join the IM FITTERS Facebook page dedicated to the group.
