Discovery Zone provides an overview of the many types of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities basic physiology and kinesiology necessary to guide workouts and adaptations of our fitness programs four parts (cardiovascular, strength, flexibility and nutrition). The course includes classroom instruction, hands-on training, and a workout in the World-Class Gainesville Health & Fitness gym with FIT for ALL Athletes. 

This experience truly bridges the gap between theory and practice, and provides examples of how to conduct a class working with any ability level. 

Discovery Zone provides knowledge and understanding of the special challenges of working with individuals with special needs and provides attendees with a foundational education that prepares them to begin training people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their home community. 

The FIT for ALL program model can be implemented in any health and fitness center that has access to a variation of cardio equipment, strength training, equipment, and a room available for stretching and functional movement exercises.
