What makes us different

When you think about fitness for people with autism, what comes to your mind?


For many, they start thinking of the challenges and the person's unique needs.


Because autism affects physical, cognitive, emotional, and sensory functioning, it has become difficult for individuals on the autism spectrum to adopt a healthy lifestyle. 


That's what THE PAC PROFILE® is made for.


Created by Eric Chessen himself, this approach looks into the physical, adaptive, and cognitive (PAC) functioning of a person in assessing and creating an individualized fitness program.


It helps understand the current needs, ability levels, and existing challenges which are all crucial in setting an appropriate program that will really work.


With over 18 years of experience working with the autism and special needs population, Eric Chessen created THE PAC PROFILE® with the intention of using it exclusively for his clients.
