Special Needs

Fitness for Fun has always been very welcoming to all children and their many different needs.  We are able to cater for children with special needs in our mainstream group classes, small group classes and through one-on-one individual coaching sessions.


We understand that your child may have many appointments with all sorts of specialists to benefit their development and day to day lives. Visiting one of our gyms, where there are lots of fun things to do, will hopefully be a less stressful kind of appointment. It is a place that prompts exploration, is full of fun and provides a wide range of benefits from improved confidence and co-ordination, to communication, motor control and social interaction.


Our one-on-one classes are individually tailored to suit the needs of the child as well as the goals of the parents/carers and can be a great way to introduce new children into gymnastics and assess their abilities. Our small group classes are also tailored to the needs of the group and are very flexible in their design and program goals.   Most classes typically run between 30-60 min and can be run before, after or during our general timetable classes.


Please note that classes are subject to the availability of coaches and appropriate sessions times.


Parents/carers will need to attend an initial meeting with our Special Needs Coordinator to meet your child and arrange an appropriate coach for the class, as well as to discuss the goals both you and your child may have (this can be done over the phone or face to face).  Families are more than welcome to request ongoing progress reports from our staff to show where improvement has been made, and what goals have been reached.  The children will receive awards such as stickers/sticker charts, medals and trophies.


The staff that teach these classes have a wide range of experience working with children with special needs. 


There are flexible timeslots available to suit your needs, from Monday-Friday.

To make an enquiry, please contact us. Various sessions are available upon request:

Fun Fact

  • Take off two points less than the child's age & this is how many instructions they can follow i.e 3-2=1
  • According to NASA, (and they know their stuff!), rebound exercise such as trampolining is ‘the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man’ -
  • The word gymnastics derives from the Greek word 'gymnazein' translated means to "exercise naked".
  • Did you know that crawling provides neurological information and pathways that the brain requires for efficient learning, absorption, retention and expression of knowledge?
  • Trampolining is a low impact sport and is a great form of exercise. It keeps you active, without having to work too hard.
  • The brain takes up 2[%] of our body weight, though consumes 20[%] of our daily energy!
  • Friedrich Ludwig Jahn of Germany is generally considered the father of gymnastics as he invented several pieces of apparatus, including the parallel bars and the balance beam, which are used today.
  • The brain loves stories, as they have an emotional component and a start, middle and ending. These all attract parts of the brain, which then stimulate learning.
