Welcome to the world of Beach Cowboy Fitness!

We are a private fitness studio specializing in gym and fitness classes for homeschooled and special needs kids and adults.  In class, we play games that provide cardio workouts as well as skill development in a fun, un-repetitive way.

We offer homeschooling parents structured programs for their children where they become more physically fit and learn essential life skills in problem-solving, communication, and leadership.

For parents with neurodiverse children and young adults, our inclusive and adaptive fitness classes provide your child with opportunities for socialization, weight loss, and strength-building

What Else Makes Beach Cowboy Fitness Different?

  • MULTI-CERTIFIED: We’re trained in fitness for individual, youth, groups, and special needs.
  • WELL-ROUNDED: We offer a variety of games/activities versus just one sport.
  • SKILLS ASSESSMENTS: Our students are assessed at the beginning and throughout the program to measure their progress.
  • STRUCTURED AGENDA: This is not a free-for-all. Our classes have a purpose. We modify our fitness games to address intellectual and developmental issues, anxiety, ADHD, and non-verbal challenges.
  • INCLUSIVE & ADAPTIVE: Our coaches are experienced with Autism, Downs Syndrome, and other neurodiverse as well as physical challenges. Is your student in a wheelchair? We can work with that too.
  • INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION: We normally average no more than 5 students per coach.
  • APPROVED P.E. CURRICULUM: Our programs follow the SC Dept of Education guidelines.
  • SAFETY, FIRST-AID, CPR/AED CLASSES: Students and parents can earn these certifications with our monthly classes.
  • RESOURCES: It is our mission to provide resources and recommendations to the special needs community. We provide opportunities for parents to gather while their kids are engaged with our coaches. We know who’s who and what’s what is available to help you and are happy to share.

Why is Gym Class Fitness Important?

As a parent of a neurodiverse child or adult, there are no other places in Charleston where they can attend an actual gym-class-style fitness program led by experienced and certified Adaptive Fitness for Special Needs trainers.  

At Beach Cowboy Fitness, we are filling that void and then some!

Studies have shown that children who learn outside the traditional school structure benefit from attending physical education classes. Homeschooled kids benefit from a structured class teaching a variety of games versus just belonging to a one-sport team.

According to the University of California at San Diego, children who exercise consistently experience enhanced cognitive development, academic growth, and increased self-control.  And did you know that kids who exercise regularly are better readers and have more vital math skills?

Kids who attend Beach Cowboy Fitness also enjoy an increase in the “4 C’s” of Communication, Concentration, Collaboration, & Confidence.

Our students develop better social skills, enhanced executive function, increased emotional development, patience, and empathy towards others.

Doesn’t Your Child Deserve All of These Advantages?
