Inclusive Fitness and the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism have collaborated to create greater access to high-quality, consistent fitness programming for neurodiverse people.

Inclusive Fitness is fitness and wellness facility whose mission is to create and maintain healthy lifestyles. Its programming includes highly trained and experienced coaches, evidence-based adaptive programming and an accessible, sensory-friendly training environment where guests can learn, challenge themselves and succeed long term.

The Flutie Foundation seeks to raise awareness of the importance of having fitness options available to the neurodiverse community, while generating needed financial support for those impacted by the lack of access to effective fitness programs. To that end, Inclusive Fitness and The Flutie Foundation have created a scholarship fund that offers financial assistance to families in need, removing that barrier to access.

"Physical fitness is a critical component to helping people and families affected by autism live life to its fullest," said Nick Savarese, executive director for the Flutie Foundation. "Inclusive Fitness is lowering barriers that have prevented neurodiverse people from participating in fitness programs, where they can be actively engaged, respected and truly form a lifestyle that results in long-term health benefits and a much-improved quality of life."
