Journey Forward

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

Journey Forward is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of those who have suffered a Spinal Cord Injury through an intense exercise program. We work with Spinal Cord Injured clients of all levels and abilities in a very active and full body approach. We focus on the clients weaknesses and work on coordinating the entire body in a very functional and complete style. Our clients will work on many different activities including gait training, load bearing, and full body neural stimulation. We are able to focus on client goals that can range from regaining lost function to simply receiving the normal benefits of exercise. Since this injury forces most to be in a chair for the majority of the day; we want to get them out of their chairs and focus on functional exercises and activities by implementing the latest in the advancement of exercise. We offer those with spinal cord injuries an aggressive and effective exercise based program.
