Co-founders Adam and Dedra Leapley were inspired to create a specialized gym for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) based on their own experience of raising a child with ASD. Adam, believing in an overall healthy mind and body, introduced his son to personal training. This led to improvements in his son’s level of fitness and social/emotional well-being. Adam also recognized his son’s talent for mentoring others on the spectrum through his work with “Unified Sports”, the “Best Buddies” program and the “Autism Spectrum Resource Center”. Adam thought that a specialized gym would give his son the opportunity to translate his strength for working with others into a career. After floating the idea to professionals in the field of ASD, he found there was a great enthusiasm for this concept and decided to move forward.
