What is Adaptive Fitness?

Adaptive Fitness is a term used to describe exercise and workouts that are modified to create a successful experience for the participants. This may be in the form of a technique, communication or equipment modification to assist in creating a positive workout environment.

TruFit, Adaptive Fitness was founded by brothers John and Adam White in Albuquerque, New Mexico and has expanded worldwide through an online website, mobile application, and interactive live stream and on-demand workouts.

Janine Johnston

Special Education Teacher

“As a special education teacher and Certified Academic Language Therapist, I find the TruFit app to be a testament to the best parts of technology. 

People living in any corner of the world who are differently abled developmentally and physically have access to compassionate, highly trained, passionate trainers who can support the strengthening of bodies and spirits through the process of doing well-scaffolded “hard things”, i.e. exercises… through the app participants can gain physical strength, grow mental resilience, gain a sense of community, meet specific needs difficult to meet elsewhere, and be inspired by kindness and courage daily…”

Dr. Reuben Sutter

Psychiatrist & Medical Director

“I am thoroughly impressed with TruFit. The app engages individuals with different abilities to find their own groove for personal fitness and wellbeing. They are often a forgotten population. 

Mainstream services usually fall short in recognizing how specific needs should be tailored. As a psychiatrist I often see individuals with intellectual disabilities who are yearning for engagement and activity to manage restless behaviors. Sadly, these behaviors often become viewed as problems to treat and result in overmedication. TruFit challenges this notion with a dedicated focus to these individuals to help them find greater satisfaction in life.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Get signed up by downloading the TruFit Adaptive Fitness App and creating a profile. Most participants will sign up as an ATHLETE and create a profile. This helps the program find matching workouts for your abilities, experience, equipment and goals. Once your profile is created you can start browsing exercises, making playlists, testing out workouts, sharing progress while earning badges and rewards.


Get started by signing up and selecting your Ability filter. As an example if you use a wheelchair or plan to do the workouts seated you could select the SEATED filter selection and the exercises displayed would only be exercises that can be performed sitting down. Additionally if you wanted to browse ALL exercises for ALL abilities you would select the INDEPENDENT filter selection to display those results. Choose the filters that are good for you and then use the bottom menu to switch between Workouts, Exercises, and Coach Assignments if you have a Coach. By performing the exercises and selecting your level of difficulty and number of reps you can track your progress and share with your friends, family and coach. There are hidden challenges and rewards built into the TruFit Adaptive Fitness App too so doing more activity means more chances to unlock rewards.


As an Athlete you have the option to workout individually or join a Coach and follow along with the Weekly workout schedule. Athletes can browse exercises anytime to make their own playlists and build a future workout. Selecting the Ability, Focus or Equipment filters will provide exercises that fit the goal of the activity. Athletes also can save favorite workouts and exercises to share with friends and family. If working with a Coach, the Coach may assign workouts to be completed by a certain time. This will help to earn extra badges and rewards within the App as they make progress. Filling out the end of the workout information additionally helps in tracking progress and developing great workout programs.
