Join us for SPIRIT Club!

Beginning in January, Disability Network Southwest Michigan will be conducting an 8-week virtual exercise program that is specifically designed to present a range of options to suit everyone. The winter months can be hard as we find ourselves confined to the indoors, and this year, with COVID lurking, it’s feeling even more isolating. What better way to beat winter than to get moving?!

Starting on January 12, Lisa Brink, from our Kalamazoo office will be leading a free weekly 1 hour exercise program on Tuesday afternoons. We have contracted with SPIRIT Club to offer this exercise program. SPIRIT Club exercise classes provide alternative ways to do each exercise to ensure that everyone can participate.

Some of the SPIRIT Club staff identify as having a disability and are skilled at adapting exercises for everyone.  Their trainers all have an active fitness certification and have been trained and certified from the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Agency (DDA). 

Registration is required for this program and we require a signed release of liability prior to you starting the program.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this SPIRIT Club exercise program, please follow this link to email Lisa or call her at 269-345-1516 x111.
