Our gym is going to be filled with specialized equipment and toys for kids of all ages and abilities, especially sensory processing disorders. We also focus on our mission by providing a large variety of classes, events, and even childcare in some cases. We will have a bi-weekly parent’s night out, resource fairs, fundraisers, music, dance, karate and yoga classes, adaptive fitness, in-bound field trips, summer and winter camps, and so many more,” writes
