Sport For Every Body

The Global Sport Institute and Ability360 are celebrating National Family Health and Fitness Day at the world-class facilities of Ability360 Sport & Fitness Center! Learn and try out adaptive sports activities from experts, hear from diverse and inspiring athletes, and learn about community resources in an active, family-friendly, fun, and welcoming atmosphere.

The day will kick off at our "opening ceremonies" with inspiring words from a diverse body of athlete ambassadors. Then, opt to join in on dance fitness with an inclusive Zumba® class. After kick-off attendees can check out open stations with rotating activities like the rock climbing wall, wheelchair rugby and basketball, tours of the facility, and more. Exhibitors will also be present and ready with an array of information and community resources to help families stay active and healthy.

This event is FREE and welcomes all body types, from ages 1-101+. Free ample parking is available in the structure between the fitness center and the Ability 360 center.

This event is in conjunction with the launch of the Global Sport Institute’s new theme, Sport and The Body.
