Our vision is to empower, enhance and increase the natural ability of those with physical, mental, and developmental disabilities. We accomplish this by creating a Sensory Fitness Center. A unique gym with imaginative backgrounds, tailored equipment and motivating coaches that bring to life exercise routines focusing on the natural abilities of each individual.
Our coaches guide members safely through workout-style activities involving costumes, dance, music and sports with fun lighting, inspiring themes, and backdrops that help each person become more confident with changes in their environment. Most members with special needs require other services such as occupational, speech, or other medical therapies.
The Ability Center of Southern Nevada will not replace those treatments, but seek to amplify their effects. Sensory gyms and exercises have been proven to help with fine motor skills, body awareness, increased social skills as well as improve muscle strength, coordination, and balance. Facts prove that sensory gyms benefit the special needs community in gaining exercise independence, improved communication, strengthening self-care habits, and attention spans.
The overachieving goal of The Ability Center of Southern Nevada is to increase access of physical exercise to the special needs community. Through the power of exercise, our members discover new strength, ability, confidence, and fulfillment that carries over into all aspects of everyday life. The Ability Center of Southern Nevada is currently the only gym of its kind in the state specifically designed to meet the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the disabled and special needs community. The Ability Center of Southern Nevada will immediately bridge the gap and become an essential part of the Las Vegas community.
Our Members with special needs and disabilities are like all people in that they want friendship, respect, and recognition. Through peer integration people commonly develop respect and begin to be fully included in society. Our members will benefit from being involved with their peers. With our experienced coaches and sensory settings, we can provide one-on-one and group athletic forums to help gain the skills and confidence for everyday challenges and social activities.
Coaches will provide personal support and encouragement to our members as they use their natural ability in order to maximize their potential, develop their skills, and help increase their confidence to reach goals. Building these relationships will help gain the trust and confidence of our members and their families, this being a pivotal component to our success.
