A Company Created to Serve Others
In 1989, Marc Sickel wanted to create a company that would help families address the same challenges he faced as a child growing up with special needs—not just the physical challenges, but the emotional challenges as well. From that idea, Fitness for Health was born. His unique perspective has enabled Fitness for Health to create unique solutions that really work—even for families who have tried just about everything.
