“The Central Florida Dreamplex exists to meet the fitness, recreational, social, and employment needs of individuals and families with physical and/or developmental disabilities. We strive to turn dreams into realities through recreational activities designed to accommodate all participants, adaptive sports, and alternative therapy methods. Our goal is to promote the lifelong health of youth, adults, and veterans with disabilities and their families. Our approach is to partner with and bring together multiple organizations for a larger, common goal of serving families with special needs.”
The Central Florida Dreamplex is a center for fitness and recreation designed specifically for families with special needs. Our facility blends alternative therapy, adaptive sports and recreation activities, and group fitness classes for the whole family into one location to serve your wellness needs.
Does your child receive physical, occupational, speech, or early development therapies? Have your therapist utilize the Dreamplex! Our facility boasts a 24’ long traverse rock wall, an Exerbike gaming system, a GameCycle, and gymnastics equipment to make therapy fun! Our occupational therapy room focuses on sensory integration, utilizing Nintendo Wii games, the Timocco interactive game set, and a therapeutic listening program.
The Central Florida Dreamplex also serves as a fitness center for the entire family. Our selection of cardiovascular and strength-training equipment allows our members to get in a workout while a family member receives therapy or participates in a group class. Our wheelchair-accessible Cybex Total Access equipment allows users of all abilities to stay fit. We also host family nights in which our staff and volunteers lead activities for the children while mom and dad do their own workout or spend a night out.
Our fitness classes are led by experienced instructors, and in many classes a licensed therapist is on-hand to assist. Our classes are designed to highlight and celebrate your child’s abilities. We also offer group fitness classes to members and visitors of all abilities. Please visit our Classes and Programs page for our current class schedule. The classes we offer include:
- Tae Kwon Do
- Music Therapy (in partnership with Joyful Music Therapy)
- Adaptive (Chair) Yoga
- Home School PE and Family Fitness
- Zumba Fitness and Zumba Gold
While we work to build our larger facility, we are building our adaptive sports programs at local, off-site venues. In addition to open gym times, we continue to expand our programming in:
- Traditional and Wheelchair Basketball
- Goalball (for those with vision impairments)
- Traditional and Power (wheelchair) Soccer
- Flag Football
We tailor our membership packages to meet the unique needs of your family! If your family has special needs, the Central Florida Dreamplex is YOUR place for fitness, recreation, and fun!
