Autism Fitness again joins up with the NY Metro Chapter of the National Autism Association for a Fitness and Active Play Day in Central Park!

Autism Fitness Founder Eric Chessen will lead a series of exercise activities for all age and ability levels. Using cones, fitness ropes, Dynamax medicine balls, and Sandbells, we will have outstanding opportunities to explore movement and play for an afternoon.

The event will feature an active group warm-up with animal-style movements including bear walks, frog hops, and T-rex stomps. From there, we will break into smaller groups to go through the fitness course which will feature stations of medicine ball throws to partners, fitness rope swings, hurdle steps, and Sandbell (weighted) activities. Fitness professionals trained by Eric will be on-site to assist.

An exercise physiologist with an extensive background in ABA, Eric has been developing and implementing successful fitness programs for individuals and groups over the last decade. In addition to working with his athletes, Eric consults and provides staff development, training, and programming for educational and fitness institutions around the U.S. He is the creator of the PAC Profile method and author of several e-books.
