Stories of Success

Fitness for Health has helped so many children!

“Fitness for Health has helped so many children! Marc Sickel brings a rare combination of expertise, idealism and creativity. The facility is state-of-the-art, cool, and fun. The staff knows how to interact with each child in an individualized and positive way. A great resource for children with motor difficulties and other developmental differences. Highly recommended.

Dan Shapiro

Fitness for Health gives my students opportunities!

“Fitness for Health gives my students opportunities to use different equipment that helps them improve their gross motor and social development skills.” “Staff members are always professional and really care about each and every child. They are always ready to help, and are a great addition to our Physical Education program.” | Kennedy Krieger: School Montgomery County Campus”

David Chambers

I saw significant improvements in my hand speed, decision making, and reaction time!

“I started working with Fitness for Health in February in order to quicken my reaction time, first step and my decision making. As a professional goalkeeper in the NWSL, it is vital to be quick in all those categories. Fitness for Health adjusted my program to specifically goalkeeping, and replicated every exercise to a game like situation. They make you think and use your brain in different ways while still focusing on reaction time and not hesitating. In the month and a half that I worked with them, I saw significant improvements in my hand speed, decision making and reaction time. Fitness for Health made workouts exciting because of the uniqueness of it. I look forward to working with them in my next offseason.”
