Why You Should Take
Our Certification Course?

Sensory Fitness promotes intentional activities, modify environments, and elicit understanding of the relationship of how we all process sensory information and our interaction with the world around us emotionally, cognitively, and physically.

By understanding how sensory systems affect behavior and function and the important role of how stability and coordination affect motor responses we can provide our fitness and health professionals, educators, and anyone working with kids or adults with sensory difficulties, such as autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder, ADHD, and other neuro-diversities in a physical capacity, new tools from which to pull from to reach goals and advance a better quality of life.

"Matt is amazing! So knowledgeable and a great resource for anyone working with people who are neurodiverse. I took his sensorimotor workshop for fitness professionals, and it was outstanding. Packed full of helpful information, including tools and activities I can immediately incorporate into programming with little to no additional equipment needed to get started.

 

I absolutely recommend getting in touch with him if you work with these populations or know anyone who does. He has workshops for everything, and a ton of knowledge to share. Thank you Matt!!"
