FUNfitness screenings are designed to identify needs, help athletes improve flexibility, strength, balance and aerobic condition, as well as educate athletes, coaches and their families on the importance of these aspects of health. In addition, the screening provides a hands-on opportunity for athletes to learn appropriate exercises from physical therapy professionals. FUNfitness is the result of an established professional relationship between American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and Special Olympics, Inc.
