Jake Weiner has been working with the special needs community for many years. He has worked with young adults with learning, emotional, developmental disabilities and other special needs in various settings such as adult vocational day programs, religious schools, 1:1 respite, non-profits, and summer camps.Jake started ZOOZ Fitness out of a need to create exercise opportunities for those individuals needing that extra push or support. In all of his years of teaching, mentoring, and working with individuals with special needs, he realized that fitness programs and gyms were not set up to accomdate people of all abilities. Many individuals with special needs were living very sedentary lives, gaining weight, and not participating in any movement related activites. ZOOZ Fitness was created to provide those adaptive, inclusive, and active programs for everyone regardless of skill or ability level.
