How Does This Benefit My Athletes?

The Autism Fitness methodology is a standardized, progressive fitness model designed for use with individuals of all age groups and across the autism spectrum.

The PAC Profile® Assessment

Our PAC Profile® Assessment (Physical, Adaptive, Cognitive) has been a game changer for professionals, therapists, teachers and parents alike.

The physical component of the PAC Profile®, In Autism Fitness® Programming, there is a focus on exercises that enhance basic strength, stability, and motor planning abilities. The exercises in the PAC Profile® are chosen because they have near-universal application and can be progressed or regressed for any level.

The adaptive component of the PAC Profile® Adaptive function is often the most important aspect of fitness and adapted PE programming for the ASD population. Adaptive functioning is all about motivation and reinforcement.

The cognitive component of the PAC Profile® cognitive functioning refers to how well an athlete responds to a specific coaching cue for a particular exercise. We’re looking at three phases of coaching/performance: Physical prompting, Visual prompting and Independent performance

What Our Pros Say

This certification has been eye-opening for me. Seeing a different demographic of athletes has been inspiring to me. How we take basic, simple exercises and keep it simple as possible is unreal. It’s building on a simplification process that leads to success.

Coach Dave Brixius Explosive Sports Performance

As someone who had a general sense of "safe" exercising and conditioning, I feel much more confident to coach someone in the ASD population because of what is highlighted in the Autism Fitness program.

Cristina Elliot Personal Trainer and Family Member of individual with ASD
