There are many personal trainers in the world who work with the general population on all levels of fitness; however, very few work with the special needs population.
My name is Joël Lascelle, I am a Certified Personal Fitness Specialist with a Diploma in Social Services. I have obtained a Certification in Adaptive Fitness to further my knowledge and abilities to assist individuals with a disability. I have currently founded and licensed JoëlsFitness with services being offered at the NavFit facilities, Nav Canada.
I have been involved with a special needs family member since I was 4 years old. My youngest brother suffered a brain injury at birth and is living with cerebral palsy. The injury primarily affected his body movements, muscle coordination & caused developmental delays. The experience of growing up with my disabled brother made me understand the importance of him having a healthy and active lifestyle. I believe and work towards promoting social integration, equality and eliminating stereotypes.
