Overview of The M2M Study
M2M is a rhythmic based exercise program at Lakeshore Foundation. The classes meet 3 times each week for 12 weeks. Each class has a different theme with exciting music and fun movements! You will find that the individuals in your class have similar functional abilities as you and therefore the class is adapted to you!
The M2M program is currently only offered as a study. The purpose of this study is to test the effects of M2M on health and fitness outcomes in adults with physical/mobility disabilities.
If eligible, you will be randomly enrolled into one of two groups: an M2M intervention group or a waitlist control group that will receive the same M2M intervention in a follow up study.
