Providing high quality, individualized fitness and movement programs for neurodiverse children, teens and adults!
At Full Spectrum Fitness, we believe that everyone should have access to high quality, appropriately planned fitness and movement programs. Using applied behavior analysis (ABA) teaching methods as well as current best practices in exercise science, our 1-on-1 fitness sessions performed in a sensory friendly environment provide neurodiverse individuals access to the lifelong benefits of fitness, designed with the individual's current level of physical, cognitive and behavioral functioning in mind.
Appropriate physical fitness programming will lead to an improvement in overall health & quality of life as well as independent performance of activities of daily living.
Fitness & Movement programs will help to:
Build overall strength, stability and gross motor skills
Generalize those improvements in strength and motor skills into activities of daily living
Improve behavioral and cognitive functioning
Reduce common medical complications associated with Autism and other neurodevelopmental diagnosis
Reduce pain/discomfort attributed to compensatory movement patterns
Improve motor planning and task execution
Improvements in these areas will serve to benefit overall wellness and activities of daily living.

In addition to having his Level I Autism Fitness Certification, Pete is a PA state certified teacher and teaches adaptive Health & Physical Education. He has eight years of experience in special education, he founded programs to teach sports and the related social skills to those with ASD, and has previously taught physical education at a school for Autism. His abundance of experience in teaching, special education and adapting activities to promote growth and success are another example of what separates Full Spectrum fitness from being just another personal trainer.
After completing his degree in Health & Physical Education, Pete began his career in education as an Autistic Support paraprofessional. It was in this setting that he became aware of the lack of access to proper fitness programs for neurodiverse individuals. His goal is to make fitness fun and attainable to the neurodiverse population, helping the individual to gain confidence and independence in performing activities of daily living.
Pete is First Aid, A.E.D, C.P.R, Safety Care and C.P.I certified and has up to date clearances, which will be provided at the initial consultation.
