Move Adapted Fitness & Rehabilitation Society

Stronger. Healthier. Happier.

Help Us Bring The Miracle Of Exercise To Every Body

MOVE is an independent registered non-profit society. Our mandate is to give adults and children with physical disabilities who need assisted exercise a safe and encouraging place to move their bodies, continue therapy and improve their quality of life in the freedom of a specialized fitness centre, not a medical clinic. We are especially interested in serving people with spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons and non-progressive brain injury, paralysis caused by stroke, heart attack, and other physical disabilities. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.

Monthly membership is $50.00 per person. 1-on-1 assisted therapy $50.00 per hour

Our Hours:

Monday: 10 am to 5 pm
Tuesday: 10 am to 5 pm
Wednesday: 10 am to 5 pm
Thursday: 10 am to 5 pm
Friday: 10 am to 5 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10 am to 4 pm

The City parkade at 575 Yates Street has accessible parking available

Why are we special?   We all need exercise, but a person in a wheelchair or an individual with mobility problems does not have the option of putting on a pair of shoes to go for a run or attend a fitness class.

  • Open 7 days a week  for people who cannot use a regular gym
  • Financial assistance available for those who qualify. For further information please call or email us at:
  • Individualized exercise programs with specialized assistants
  • Trained volunteers available to help with hands-on stretching exercises
  • Gym is designed so that individuals can transfer out of the wheelchair to perform their exercises
  • We provides students with a valuable hands-on experience that is necessary to enter post graduate programs
  • One-on-one assisted exercise available with an athletic therapist
  • Family members can exercise with loved ones at the same time
  • MOVE is a safe, supervised, encouraging and energizing environment
  • Individual progress is recorded to track progress and recognize milestones
