Burke is relaunching the Burke Fitness Challenge for individuals with neurologic impairments or who are wheelchair bound.

This ongoing program provides an individualized program on machines appropriate for those with neurologic impairments or who are wheelchair bound who want to maintain or improve cardiovascular and muscular stamina. Membership includes 2 - 3 orientation sessions with a trained professional who will help individuals customize an exercise program and determine which equipment is beneficial for use. Caretakers will also receive training so that they may help members achieve their fitness goals.

Members may continue with the program during designated Fitness Challenge hours and a staff member will always be present to help answer any questions and inquiries about progress upon request.
