AllTernative Gym is transforming lives with its state-of-the-art fitness and therapy programs developed specifically for those with special needs such as cerebral palsy, autism and other neurological disorders.
Founded by Certified Fitness Trainer and Expert, Angie Gomez, AllTernative Gym provides Adeli Suit Therapy, Fitness Training and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
"As a parent of a child with special needs, I truly understand what parents are looking for in a therapy center. And, I treat each child as if he were my own and each adult as if they were a family member," states Angie Gomez, founder of AllTernative Gym. Angie is an expert in the Adeli Suit Therapy method. She is the only person from the original 3 people that completed the entire Adeli Suit Therapy training program in Poland and Russia that is actually working with the Adeli Suit and its methods today. "We're the only center to have and use a 9 foot cage "UEU" (universal exercise unit) which enables us to provide therapy treatment to adults."
AllTernative Gym is ideal for cerebral palsy patients, stroke survivors, brain and spinal trauma, multiple sclerosis, near drowning, down syndrome, obesity and autism. Although patients receive a world-class therapy program, therapy at AllTernative Gym costs less than other centers because the staff members are fitness trainers and not physical or occupational therapist. Angie and her team make it much more affordable for parents and their loved ones to get the care they need.
"The AllTernative Gym has been an answer to our prayers. Riding a bicycle with minimal assistance is something we never even dreamed of! Angie and her team not only provide our family with genuine sense of belief that Morgan can accomplish her goal of walking, but, they have also given her the confidence and attitude of "I CAN DO IT". The quality of therapy Morgan receives is outstanding and her continued advancement shows that we made the right decision," stated Morgan's mom, Jennifer Johnson. This is just one of the many success stories from the patients of AllTernative Gym. "Our motto is, every day brings another success story at AllTernative Gym," says Angie.
