The Saturday Studs. You make my weekend, every weekend. Thanks for bringing the effort and positive vibes. 🙌💪🏼 ❤️ #progressispossible #strengthandagility #exceptionallyexceptional #autismlove #faceautismtogether #specialsouls #fitnessforautism

Each week this guy comes in focused and enthusiastic about the hour of exercise ahead. I’m so proud to be his fitness coach. It is one thing to set goals for my athletes, it’s another thing for my athletes to set the goals for themselves. It’s powerful! We work on stabilizing and strengthening every week through a variety of movements. He never backs down or turns away from a challenge. I love seeing this progress and willingness to emerge better, isn’t that what this journey is all about? It makes his heart happy, which in turn, makes my heart happy, too. ❤️😊💪🏼 #nxtgen #fitnessfanatic #fitteens #autismfitness #autismlove #progressispossible #exceptionallyexceptional #strengthinsideout #wellnesscoach #coachforspecialneeds

Hey guys, remember Jordan? Just a couple of months ago he was hitting his fastest time on the treadmill at 6.5. Today, he is now running at 9.5, with a smile on his face, as always! This just goes to show, progress IS possible. Currently, Jord is hitting the gym 3 times a week and running in his own time. How incredible you are, young man! I can’t wait to look back and see where you are a year from now. #nxtgen #fitnessfanatic #fitteens #autismfitness #autismlove #progressispossible #exceptionallyexceptional #strengthinsideout #wellnesscoach #coachforspecialneeds

NXT Generation is so proud to coach children and teens of all capabilities, including individuals with exceptionalities (ADD, autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, asperger’s, anxiety, etc.). Our unique approach to improving their overall state of being is simply, “gym time”. Personal training/coaching guides individuals with exceptionalities to not only improve their physical health, but to:
1. Gain confidence and inner strength
2. Reduce anxiety
3. Improve day to day living functions
4. Use as a healthy outlet for negative feelings in a productive manner
5. Make friends and work on social skills
The proof is in the pudding. Tears turn to smiles. Failure becomes motivation. 3 Laps increases to 4. Careless shifts to mindful. The impossible changes to possible.
For years we have seen extraordinary progress with such a variety of individuals. We are honored to have these special moments with so many incredibly talented children and teens of all ages and abilities. May the fun and fitness never stop.💪🏼❤️ #teenswithE #specialandstrong #exceptionallyexceptional #fitnessforall #autismlove #adhdproudtobe #anxietyrelief #fitkids #fitteens #exerciseforall #youthfit #strengthwithin #strengthinsideout #confidentkids #nxtgen

“To teach is to learn twice.” About two years ago, a lightbulb went off. Why not have my older, experienced athletes with exceptionalities mentor and help coach my younger athletes? It’s a no-brainer. They get to socialize, work on following multiple responsibilities and set the ultimate example to work hard. I mean, you lead by doing. This week, two of my incredible teens (wait... now, young adults) started back in the gym with their “Coach’s Assistant” role. During 1:1 and group sessions, they will assist with leading warm-up drills, demonstrating exercises and providing good old fashioned encouragement. I couldn’t think of a better pair to model and motivate the younger ones! People... this is just the beginning.

We are kicking off our back to school sessions this week and wow, what a commitment to wellness and fitness education families are making. NXT Generation is SO proud and honored to work with over 20 children AND teenagers, of all capabilities, through our Individualized Instruction 1:1 Program. Each student-athlete is paving her/his own path to feeling strong, confident and successful and I can’t wait to share the milestones, obstacles and victories along the way. #bestyearyet #nxtgennation #teachthemyoung #nxtgennation #movementistherapy #moveandlearn #kinestheticlearning #corestrengthening #drivenbyconfidence #fitnessforall #fitkids #learningthroughmovement #kidsyoga #exerciseforkids #exceptionallyexceptional

“Your limitations are the ones you set up in your mind.” Today, we encourage you to walk up to your “box jump” and face whatever is holding you back. #kidswhosoar #exceptionallyexceptional #kidsexercise #physicalactivityisfun #jointhemovement #neurodiversityisbeautiful #fitkids #strengthinsideout

Hopscotch, a movement pattern that we all know and loved as a child. Am I right?! This rockstar, in particular, initially had difficulty balancing on one foot and in turn, wasn’t able to complete a hopscotch pattern... yet!! But with every session we spent time balancing, switching from left to right, hopping on numbers, hopping in hoops, you name it. So, because of that, the past couple of weeks we’ve been able to take it up a notch. We are moving from our beginning moves, to more complex ones (ie. the infamous hopscotch). Directions are becoming a little more challenging in a sense that we are distinguishing between right and left balancing (and hopping), one foot versus two foot, repetitively. Try and try again we will! The key to achieving goals and/or milestones is to practice, stay consistent and always be persistent. #exceptionallyexceptional #autismmovementtherapy #itsawaytolearn #fitkids #fitnessforall #specialneedscoach #neurodiversityisbeautiful

My fellow friends of social media, we did it! Social GYM's Small Group Camp is complete. Today we started off the morning with a goal-oriented discussion which led to our Wellness Wheel. Here we selected new goals (Emotional, Mental, Physical, and Social) for the future. Along with that exciting lesson, some of us jumped to new fitness heights (literally and figuratively). Finally, we rounded out the week with a calming yoga session (by request). They rocked it! This is a special group, as I've known most of the participants for 5 or more years. Crazy! #fitnessforall #teenswithe #exceptionallyexceptional #whatlimits #diversityrocks #autismlove #downsyndromelove #socialgymskills #wellnesscamp #goalsetting #nxtgen

We did all of the things today with this Fabulous Four. Affirmation art, strength training, boxing circuit, painting love rocks, and so much laughter. It was a great day, to have a great day. #dwellinpossibility #thejourneycontinues #strengthinsideout #exceptionallyexceptional #wellnesscamp #fitnessforall #whatlimits #diversityrocks #loveandfitness

Social GYM's Small Group Wellness Camp began today and it was such a success! We worked on our Vision Folders, which promote positive and powerful thoughts and actions, we focused on Fitness FUNdamentals and Locomotor Movements, we got our ZEN on, and lots MORE!

All hail the underdog, my friends. I am SO proud of this one. We've been working on attending to lessons, speed, agility, and stability. This young man is living proof that you can do anything you put your mind to if you have a little patience and the will to work. Keep it up, buddy! #movementistherapy #autismawareness #autismlove #celebratestrengths #acceptancematters #kinesetheticlearner #fitteens #fitnessforall #exceptionallyexceptional #exerciseforhealth #specialneedscoach

The true impact fitness and wellness education has for kids and teens of ALL ages and capabilities is BAR NONE.


It gives our young ones a strong foundation, a health-minded mentality and an enthusiasm to exercise.


It gives our individuals with exceptionalities an opportunity to rise above physical, emotional and social barriers.


It gives our competitive ones a chance to take their mental toughness, discipline and stamina to the next level.


Each year, we see children and teenagers alike break through internal obstacles and smash their set goals. It just keeps getting better. We all EMERGE better.


Thank you to those who value and support this wild and crazy brainchild of mine. I couldn't do this without any of you. It's a nation, a NXT Generation nation!


Here's to SIX years strong and to many more.
