If you have Multiple Sclerosis, taking on this challenge means you’re making a decision that you no longer want MS to control your life. It is a lifestyle of fitness which includes exercise, nutrition and mindset in conquering this disease. With MS Fitness challenge you have the support you need of certified fitness professionals, trained to work with people who have MS or other chronic health conditions, and a community of people who have taken the challenge and are also working towards winning the battle against multiple sclerosis.
A heartfelt congratulations to my incredible friend, David Lyons, for winning the esteemed Social Health Network Lifetime Achievement Award! Your dedication and steadfast commitment to the MS and chronic conditions communities have truly been life-changing, empowering countless lives through fitness and inspiration.
After my diagnosis, “and reading about it, and not really finding anything positive… I started realizing, this is not the direction I want to go. I’m a fighter, and I need to fight this. I need to get back into the gym and do it the way I’ve always done things, and that’s physically.” — David Lyons
Normal fitness trainers don’t know how to work with people with MS. They don’t understand our struggles. That’s why we started this program.
Whatever your physical abilities or fitness level, you can benefit from an exercise program. Join us in the gym, at home, or wherever you are, take the MS Fitness Challenge, and take control of your life.

During the MSFC I have gained so much strength in my legs that I’m actually able to get out of my wheelchair and use my walker again!
