Special Olympics Ontario has done an amazing job keeping their community informed, engaged and healthy during these difficult times. Below are some options for you and your families to try for promoting fitness, education and fun in your household with even some challenges and competitions thrown in!
Reveal your Champion is a one-year training program that provides a variety of workouts focused on different areas of fitness to help you become the best athlete you can be! Each month program participants will set goals and work to achieve them. The program also includes health and wellness activities in addition to the workouts. WE are going to help YOU Reveal Your Champion!
MyPAHL is an online health and wellness program that was designed to help Special Olympics athletes get and stay physically fit while being rewarded in the process.
Athletes create an account for MyPAHL and complete a Health Risk Assessment questionnaire which will help MyPAHL design an Action Plan for each athlete based on areas that may need improvement. Each Action Plan includes recipes, videos and tips on how to improve your health.
This program is targeted to our youngest athletes, between the ages of 2 to 13.
This year, we are hosting our 10-week program through a virtual format with pre-recordings from partnering coaches and volunteers who have recorded workout videos and lessons corresponding to our weekly themes; these videos can be completed at your leisure.
Additionally, several weeks will include live events hosted over Google Meets featuring guests from partnering organizations to lead storytelling sessions, fun activities and/or deliver interactive presentations (please refer to our program schedule for more details).
