Adaptive Athlete Training

How we got started

With both grandfathers having served in the military, Impact Fitness co-founder and owner, Denny Locascio, has always had a passion for supporting the veteran community. In 2016, Denny connected with the Wounded Warrior foundation and through the foundation, was introduced to Impact's first adaptive athlete. Over the years, the program has grown to include athletes with spinal cord injuries (SCIs), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and amputated athletes.

Through the community formed at Impact, athletes have competed together in a range of events, including in the Skyway 10k's first ever wheelchair division, as well as in the Sup & Run 5k, hosted by Operation Second Chance.

About

Adaptive Athlete Training

Our adaptive training program offers athletes, with a range of physical abilities, to improve their strength and increase their mobility. Many of these athletes are U.S Armed forces Veterans looking for a way to continue to train and push themselves. Our trainers have experience with working with individuals with all types and level of injury. We do not believe that being in a wheelchair should prevent you from getting a great workout and having the opportunity to strengthen your body and mind.
