Lions United

Silver Sponsor
Scholarships Sponsor

ALL are welcome here at Lions United, but Coach Andy has a special kind of vision. Coach Andy centers his focus on individuals with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and other physical and intellectual disabilities. For many Lions who join the fitness center, this is their outlet. Lions United is the one place where our athletes can come and be themselves. This is a place where they can grow, a place they can socialize, a place where they can learn, and a place where they can ROAR! Outside of Lions United, these brave athletes may be wearing many different labels because of the way they walk, talk, and act, but a Lions United, each and every PERSON who comes through the door is treated like a professional athlete. We are preparing our Lions for battle. Coach Andy has a philosophy, that the life inside of a gym can dramatically improve the life outside of the gym. From the many different training programs that Coach Andy offers, it doesn’t stop there. Motivation, encouragement, leadership, courage, following directions, sportsmanship, gratitude, and confidence are just a few traits that Coach Andy passes off to his Lions.
