RyzAb0ve fitness is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that PROVIDES EXERCISE CLASSES, DAY CAMPS, AND SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES THAT HELP INDIVIDUALS WITH INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES IN LIVING A HEALThIER, MORE FULFILLING LIFESTYLE.
Our exercise classes focus on exercise and socialization including warm-up, fun/games, and general fitness including strength, agility, coordination, balance and teamwork. Movements can be progressed or regressed depending on participant needs.
Day camps can be half-day of full-day and normally consist of activities such as art & crafts, fitness, yoga, fun with music, ropes course, zip line, and many other fun things.
These events are held periodically to give our athletes an opportunity to challenge themselves while using the skills that they have learned during our classes. Each event has 20-25 obstacles to complete. Each event is concluded with a ceremony that presents each participant with a custom t-shirt and a finisher medal.
We host social events and outings such as dinners, bowling, or trips to different sporting events. This formulates bonds and friendships between our athletes and instructors outside of class and gives our athletes a sense of normalcy and creates comfort in public settings.
