Enhance® Fitness is an evidence-based, group exercise program designed for adults of all fitness levels. The program was adapted by NCHPAD to provide guidance to instructors for creating a program inclusive of people with disabilities. The Inclusive Enhance Fitness program was pilot tested at Lakeshore Foundation between November 2020 and February 2021. Participants completed pre- and post-program fitness assessments as well as self-report of satisfaction and experience with Enhance Fitness. A total of 11 participants were enrolled in the Inclusive Enhance Fitness Pilot. Those enrolled represented individuals with stroke, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cancer, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic pain.
