Some of the boys at Monaco House have had the opportunity to become more active in the community by going to The Gym on Broadway! Chris Williamson, the owner and head personal trainer of The Gym, has generously donated his time, facility, and energy to help our guys stay active. During a personal training session, staff member Brianna Makowka learned Chris had extensive experience working with children with Autism. Chris offered to work with the kids of Monaco House on a weekly basis, and they have now been working out for two months! At The Gym, Chris focuses to improve balance, hand-eye-coordination, strength training and nutrition. The boys enjoy using the elliptical, participating in obstacle courses and even bonding with Chris and his dog Sam. The tools and skills learned at The Gym have transferred over to activities at the house. Best of all the boys have grown in their social skills and improved their overall health. We really appreciate Chris and The Gym and look forward to more fun!
