Hello! My name is Monique Prevel and I am a mother of a non-verbal, very high energy, autistic kiddo. I was born and raised in Montana and currently live in the Helena area. I became an Autism Fitness Certified Professional in November 2018 after realizing the need for a movement based fitness program, not only for my son, but the entire ASD population of Montana. To address this need, I founded Big Sky Autism Project. My philosophy in practice is Improving Life Through Movement in an environment of inclusion and acceptance. I learn about the athlete prior to our first meeting so I can make the first, and subsequent, sessions as productive and successful as possible. I work with the athlete at their level, using positive reinforcement, a calm demeanor, understanding and patience.
Along with my Autism Fitness Certification and continued AF education, I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Certified Yoga Teacher, and am CPR/AED/FIRST AID Certified. I love taking my kiddo hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, and exploring new places. I also enjoy being active in the community and competing in Spartan Race. I am currently working on my Autism Fitness Level 2 Certification.
