Benefits of Exercise on People with Living with Autism and Related Developmental Challenges

Exercise and physical activity are important for people with and without Autism. Childhood obesity is a problem today and an even greater problem for children and young adults with Autism. More than half of all children with Autism are either overweight or at risk (Autism Speaks). Being overweight can put children at increased risk for numerous health problems. Health concerns include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, bone and joint problems, depression and anxiety. Research shows that sports, exercise and other physical activities can be useful to help with weight management.

Regular physical activity can also lead to improved quality of life for people with Autism. Increased aerobic exercise can decrease the frequency of behaviors like body rocking, spinning, head nodding, hand flapping, object tapping, aggression and more (Autism Speaks).

Benefits of Fuse45 for kids, teens, and young adults with Autism and related challenges include:

  • Physical: Strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, stamina
  • Social & Emotional: Teamwork, friendship, peer interaction, confidence and self-esteem gained from sense of accomplishment
  • Vocational: Teamwork, problem solving, productivity, task fluency

As children with Autism and related challenges get older, fewer programs are available to them. With programs like Fuse Force, kids with Autism and related developmental challenges will have a healthy community to strive and a strong sense of belonging. All children should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of staying healthy and fit by joining group exercise classes. The behavioral, physiological, emotional and social benefits cannot be ignored.

Have a child or know someone with special needs? Tell him/her about Fuse45!

Fuse45 has truly changed my life. I never felt “athletic” before, even though I ran cross country in high school and worked out. Since becoming a part of the great community at Fuse45, I have seen just how strong and capable I am—to do anything.
