Why it Works
Club Wellness will make an impact for your organization. All activities were designed and chosen specifically for those with intellectual disabilities to be safe, effective, easy to learn and easy to perform independently. Goal setting and in-home wellness activities are included to encourage lifestyle changes. Easy recipes are provided that use few ingredients and few utensils for preparation.
Seated options are included for all exercises.
Friends are Good for Your Health
Those with intellectual disabilities often feel isolated. A Harvard study shows that social connections positively impact health. People who are more socially connected to family, friends, and community are healthier, and live longer than people who are less well connected. People who feel isolated are less happy, their health declines, and they live shorter lives than people who are not lonely,
Club Wellness brings people together in a setting that fosters community, friendship and encouragement.
CLUB WELLNESS IS FUN!
If the program isn't fun, people won't show up. Not a problem with Club Wellness! The program has fun "baked in" throughout the 12 weeks of sessions. Trainers are taught how to utilize the lesson plans and achieve the maximum amount of fun, enjoyment, excitement and enthusiasm the group can handle.
In each session, Club Members experience activities, music, laughter, prizes, encouragement, and samples of healthy food from recipes provided. Club Members work to change habits together, not alone and isolated.
This is what makes Club Wellness work!
