Fitness For Those With Special Needs

The struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle is challenging for everyone, and it can be especially challenging if you have special needs. The JCC Fitness Center and Aquatics Center are committed to accommodating exercisers with special needs whenever possible.

Physical activity has many benefits for children and adults with special needs, including

  • Allows for release of positive or negative energy
  • Builds self-esteem
  • Improves social interaction
  • Improves focus and function of daily living skills
  • Weight loss if needed
  • Can reduce anxiety
  • Have fun while getting fit

If you or a family member needs accommodation for special needs, please contact Deborah Rothschild, the JCC's Director of Sports and Wellness, at deborahr@svjcc.org or 408.357.7440.
