Welcome to the Adaptive physical education department! This program offers a wide range of fitness activities for students with special needs. Our Facility has the latest exercise equipment and is equipped with specially designed machines that are wheelchair accessible.

The classes are designed with the student's individual needs and goals in mind. Students will receive an evaluation and an individual exercise plan. The college has an excellent and qualified faculty and support staff to work with each class.

Every day students come in and start with cardio. Depending on your strength and health you will start on the Bikes, Treadmill, Saratoga, or  the Nustep.

 After being on a Cardio machine for 15 minutes you can now work on our weight machines. You will have an assistant to guide you through your workout.


Stretching post-workout allows your muscles to loosen up and increases your range of motion. Stretching after a workout is equally important. Post-workout stretches, also known as maintenance stretches, help to move lactic acid out of your muscles and decrease soreness.

Reach out to Christy to find the right stretch for you.
