A Healing Experience from Next Steps™ to Gaining Strength and Confidence

Parrish Health & Fitness Center, Nick Solt, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP) at a young age. Nick SoltSolt endured multiple surgeries and several years of physical therapy in hopes of improving his condition. His doctors and physical therapists were unsure if he would ever walk again.

Solt sought out North Brevard area fitness centers that could help him strengthen his body. Most gyms that he encountered were unable to provide the appropriate equipment or assistance needed for wheelchair users.

Then, Solt discovered Parrish Health & Fitness Center. Parrish Health & Fitness Center’s care partners introduced him to the Next Steps Fitness Programs™—an eight-week course that includes a pre-assessment and two, 60-minute group workout sessions per week. Fitness Manager Tammy Shelley took Solt on as a client, creating his personalized fitness plan.

“Because of Parrish Healthcare, my strength has improved throughout my entire body,” said Solt. “I’ve also been able to improve my self-confidence,” says Solt.

Now, Solt can walk two-tenths of a mile while continuing to soar. He attributes his success to Parrish Health & Fitness Center’s encouragement and dedication.
