See How These Cross-Trainers Have Helped High School Kids on the Spectrum!

Aim High is an alternative high school for adolescents who have difficulties at more traditional schools — including many kids who are on the spectrum. The goal of the school is to help students reach their highest potential, through curriculum that suits their individual needs.

A large portion of Aim High’s curriculum focuses on physical fitness. Many children on the spectrum have some difficulties with physical activities, which can make it difficult for them to get a healthy amount of exercise.

However, thanks to a generous donation from the founders of NuStep, the students at Aim High now have two brand-new seated recumbent cross trainers, designed to give people with physical barriers the ability to get some much-needed exercise.

Find out how the students’ new equipment has changed their lives in this video!
