Athlete Health and Fitness
Athletes want to perform their best at every competition. You can do this by being fit. Special Olympics International's Fit 5 program is a plan for physical activity, nutrition, and hydration. It can improve your health and fitness to make you the best athlete you can be. The fitness cards and videos offer exercises to challenge all abilities. These exercises can be done at practice, at the gym, or even at home!

School of Strength is an interactive online platform that encourages athletes to participate in a fun and engaging training program that they can do in the comfort of their own homes. Developed in partnership with WWE superstar Becky Lynch, this series of videos, a fitness tracker, a coach’s playbook and a caregiver toolkit all contribute to helping athletes focus on nutrition and fitness and getting the most out of their workouts.
