WHAT ABOUT THE WORD “ADAPTIVE”

Here at I AM ADAPTIVE, we believe that WE ARE ALL ADAPTIVE.

The origin of the word ADAPTIVE comes from the Latin word ‘adaptāre’ which means “to adjust and undergo modification so as to fit new circumstances”.

By nature we are ALL called to ADAPT to life, its circumstances and everything in between. ADAPTATION runs through our veins and is an innate characteristic for survival. Our bodies, minds, and spirits are constantly ADAPTING to new situations, environments, elements and energies.

ADAPTIVE is a relatively new concept in the world of fitness. In a pretty small nutshell, an ADAPTIVE Athlete is anyone who must adapt to a situation related to their fitness goals and needs. The meaning of ADAPTIVE is such a broad spectrum including but not limited to Athletes with: amputations, paraplegia, muscular dystrophy, special needs, scoliosis, traumatic brain injuries, blindness, deafness, lactic acidosis, cerebral palsy, and so on!

 We all adjust to our world for survival, for strength, for more of everything we need and love. The only difference between some of us is the degree of adjustment we have to go through to reach the same result.

ADAPTIVE is a positive term in the world of fitness and continues to grow as more of us come out of the woodwork!!

The I AM ADAPTIVE MOVEMENT has begun!!

Its time we did away with the words “Disabled” & “Handicapped” and showed the world what we are truly capable of!!!
