Those with autism are often intentionally, or unintentionally, excluded from exercise programs. This is because most fitness professionals are not educated to successfully work with this community. With insightful training and evidence-based strategies, fitness professionals around the world are embracing this untapped opportunity. Exercise is life-changing not just for your new clients, but also their families. Working with this community will improve your income and will inspire you to help more with each successful outcome.
