Beast Mode Spring 2017 Wrap-up
Posted: June 30, 2017 in The Ability Hub News
Hello everyone! We are proud to announce that the spring session of the Beast Mode fitness program was a great success! It was our largest group to date with participant registration growing by over thirty percent.
Congratulations to all of our participants for completing the program and for their impressive improvements in both fitness and teamwork! We celebrated the end of programming by going out to Injanation Training Centre where participants were challenged to complete an obstacle course similar to those seen on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior.
We were very fortunate to have Dr. Stephanie Jull visit the Sinneave Family Foundation to provide a seminar on the importance of effective fitness coaching for individuals with autism. Dr. Jull is the Director of Programming for the Canucks Autism Network (CAN) and a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) with over 10 years’ experience in teaching community recreation instructors to support children with autism. We are very thankful for Dr. Jull’s advice and suggestions for enhancing the summer session of Beast Mode.
Special recognition goes to Colin Bradford, winner of the program’s first ‘Beast Moder Award’. All of the facilitators, volunteers, and peers would like to thank Colin for his dedication to the group, his leadership skills, consistent positive work ethic, and for always motivating his peers to challenge their perceived limitations.
Finally, thank you to all of our volunteers and instructors who have helped our participants to expand their fitness goals by teaching them new fitness training techniques such as yoga and spin. We look forward to continuing to build on the success of Beast Mode with our next group of participants starting in July.
