The Adaptive PE program offers a variety of classes to fit your needs and level of mobility. General Conditioning Classes are offered each weekday while Specialized Classes have unique schedules and may incur an extra fee (please see our Schedule page for timing).

General Conditioning Classes

All General Conditioning Classes (APE Classes) are structured in a way that offers a personalized exercise program but carried out in a motivating group setting. Each individual is allowed to progress at his or her own pace, and feel safe in an environment where they will not be judged for their own particular level of ability.

Each 90 minute class consists of a group exercise session and an individual exercise session. Depending on fitness needs, individual exercise may be independent exercise or personalized with a trainer. Classes are purchased in bundles depending on desired attendance. You may enroll at any time and the fee will be prorated.
