To increase the physical fitness level of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities living within the Chelsea area, St. Louis Center has developed the Fitness for Life program. People within a 20-mile radius may participate in this program. “We had a lot of success our first year in weight loss coordination, and overall improved quality of life amongst our residents that we want to extend the program to members of the community with IDD,” said Caitlin Bloomquist, Fitness Specialist.
