Sign & Sweat Workshop
Traditionally, fitness hasn’t been very accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, but Fitness Is My Sickness aims to change that in the San Diego Community. The workshop includes adaptive fitness classes including sign language, standard visual cues, and bass heavy music. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn some simple sign language and instruction on how to incorporate the use of gestures, demos, and even facial expressions to encourage inclusiveness. Fitness Is My Sickness offers their signature Sign & Sweat Fitness quarterly workshops and weekly classes as part of their other services. This is an opportunity to make the gym and fitness more welcoming and accessible, while increasing their community outreach.
