Illinois Special Olympics FUNFitness

FUNfitness is a fitness screening performed by physical therapy professionals for Special Olympic Healthy Athletes.  The purposes of FUNfitness are to assess all components of fitness; to educate athletes, families and coaches about the importance of fitness; and to provide a hands-on opportunity to learn about the role of the physical therapist in fitness.  FUNfitness was developed by the APTA for the Special Olympics.
