Fitness Improvement Training (FIT)

FIT-logo-verticalSpecial Olympics Iowa is ready to get FIT!  The Fitness Improvement Training (FIT) program is designed to assist in improving the fitness, athletic performance and overall well-being of our Special Olympics community.

FIT is considered a Unified Sport so we encourage all athletes, coaches, staff and family members to participate. The program has been designed to be extremely flexible – allowing you and your team to incorporate a fitness program that works for you, while providing you with resources to assist as you develop a FITness program.

How you and your team get FIT is completely up to you!  Work with your team throughout the year to improve fitness measures – walk, run, bike, swim, lift, MOVE!
