The Community Fitness and Wellness (CFW) Center’s mission is to deliver to individuals with paralysis a continuum of care and cure. We seek to provide accessibility for activity-based interventions and exercise to improve the health and quality of life for those with paralysis.


To maintain function and improve health and quality of life for people living with paralysis through comprehensive activity-based interventions. CFW staff will identify appropriate activity-based interventions for potential enrollment based on the client’s lifestyle and resources.


Research indicates that individuals living with paralysis benefit from lifelong exercise programs that integrate strength and aerobic fitness training, flexibility exercises and walking practice where feasible. The Community Fitness and Wellness (CFW) Facilities of the NeuroRecovery Network have made a commitment to give people living in their community access to affordable and effective activity-based exercise. CFWs are staffed by athletic trainers, personal trainers, and exercise physiologists, together referred to as Activity-based Technicians.

Our CFW team provides an overall plan for longitudinal health maintenance. Activity-based interventions that may help participants maintain or improve their health are identified, and participant-specific recommendations are offered. Scholarships and discounted packages may also be available.

If you or someone you know who is living with paralysis is ready to make this next step in their lifelong commitment to fitness, please click a site near you to find out more.
