Eric Chessen M.S. is the Founder of Autism Fitness. Over a decade ago Eric began developing fitness programs for the autism and special needs population. Working with hundreds of athletes since that time he began to develop the methodology that would become the PAC Profile now part of both Autism Fitness Toolbox and the Autism Fitness Level I Certification. With a background in both exercise science and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) the Autism Fitness approach blends best practices in fitness with proven behavior support and educational concepts.
Today Eric leads Autism Fitness and its mission to bring effective appropriate and sustainable fitness and adapted PE programs to as many individuals as possible through his consulting online educational products and the Autism Fitness Certification.
