Special Lift has served Marin County youth and those with special needs through fitness, health, and wellness programs since 2010. We offer safe and inclusive exercise classes, personal training, and health and wellness education. Special Lift serves an average of 50 members on a weekly basis, 80% of whom have Down syndrome. For over 10 years we have helped countless participants lose weight, gain strength, build confidence, and enhance their cognitive function. We have seen hundreds of special individuals improve their quality of life through consistent exercise, healthy eating habits, and a supportive community.
At Special Lift, we are dedicated to the physical and emotional well-being of the Special Needs community. COVID-19 has not changed this. However, it has created challenges to continue supporting the health and well-being of our members. Due to the closure of our gym caused by the pandemic, Special Lift now offers digital fitness through small group classes and as well as one-on-one sessions with members.
We are now in month two of Special Lift Digital Fitness. Both our members and trainers have transitioned to this new platform exceptionally well!
