Adaptive fitness is personal training and exercise for those who have physical disabilities or limited mobility. This isn’t as small of a group as it sounds because there are many of us who may have limited mobility or restricted range of motion. And it’s not restricted to any age either! From young kids to senior citizens, adapting fitness to your personal needs is the focus.
If you’re just getting started or more advanced, you’ll find workouts tailored to your needs.
Every workout has options
Workout Library with new workouts added frequently
Seated and Standing workouts!
Whatever that means for you!
We all move differently and have varying abilities. This is fantastic news because, despite any limitation we may have, we are capable of conditioning ourselves to reach our own personal peak performance and feel amazing while doing it!
Hey there! I'm Tony Jacobsen, and guess what? I was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I.), which you might know as "brittle bones." But that's just a part of my story. Today, I'm not just a certified personal trainer, but a beacon of hope for those with disabilities and mobility challenges. Why? Because I've walked (and sometimes wheeled) in those shoes. Plus, I'm certified as a Behavior Change Specialist, so I know a thing or two about transforming mindsets!
Let me give you a glimpse into my journey: Over 70 fractures, 12 surgeries, 4 steel rods, and a rollercoaster of physical and emotional challenges. For the longest time, I relied on a wheelchair and crutches. I took my first independent steps at 24, but my fears held me back. The thought of breaking another bone paralyzed me with anxiety.
And then, at 40, life threw me a curveball. An EKG revealed I'd had a minor heart attack. I was at my lowest, both physically and mentally. But here's the twist: I decided it was time to rise. I wasn't going to let my disability define me anymore. With grit and determination, I transformed myself. In just 8 months, I shed 40 lbs, felt more energetic than in my 20s, and did things I never dreamt of - like running and jumping! And all this magic happened at the tender age of 42.
Since then, I've been on a mission. I wrote my story in 'Disable Your Disability: Live the Healthy Life You Deserve!' and ignited the #UNBREAKABLE movement. I want everyone to realize their potential, just as I did. I'm a proud NASM-certified personal trainer and I'm bringing resources to those who need them the most.

"I'm really grateful to Tony! He took the time to understand my goals, abilities, and limitations, and then he worked with me to set up a nutrition and fitness plan that made sense for me. Three years later, I'm still following many of the guidelines he laid out, and I'm healthier and more mobile than I have been in a long time."
