The Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) Fitness Competition has been designed by Special Olympics staff representing multiple SO Programs, the SONA Region and Special Olympics Inc. (SOI) to offer participants (athletes and Unified partners) the opportunity to challenge themselves and others through performance measures of various fitness exercises.
The Fitness Competition provides trainings and exercises that can be done in-person, but also allow for participants and their coaches to train and compete virtually, all while staying connected to their Special Olympics community.
Combining fitness initiatives into your daily routine, along with other sporting endeavors, presents the opportunity to improve everyone’s health and quality of life.
