PAOLI, PA — CoreAbility, which offers adapted group fitness classes for individuals with intellectual disabilities in a safe, social, and motivational environment, is celebrating two years at its Paoli location, Purenergy.

Twice a week, CoreAbility athletes improve their flexibility, balance and coordination, muscular strength, aerobic conditioning, and physical endurance. The group fitness model also provides a social outlet for CoreAbility athletes in a motivating environment, where they get the exercise they need with friends and peers.

“Starting around seventh grade, we noticed a need for regularly scheduled, intense physical fitness opportunities,” said co-founder Chris Murray, whose daughter Bridget is a program participant. “When given the opportunity and challenged, everyone has what it takes to improve their physical fitness.?


CoreAbility is staffed by professionally certified trainers from Fitness Trainers Incorporated, home of the Fighting Back Program, located in Malvern.

“Making a difference in people’s lives – it’s why we do what we do,” added co-founder Scott Dillman, owner of Fitness Trainers Inc. “Our trainers use a combination of education, motivation, and accountability, giving our athletes that sense of accomplishment and confidence they can carry with them outside of the gym.”

“Scott’s trainers are truly invested in our athletes and have a passion for helping people,” added Murray. “From the beginning, we felt it critical that CoreAbility be led by trained, certified professionals in a first-class environment like Purenergy.”
