The MENTOR Wellness Program

Mindfulness, Exercise, and Nutrition To Optimize Resilience

Sportable is proud to partner with the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) to offer the MENTOR wellness program to our athletes. MENTOR was created for adults with disabilities, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and designed by NCHPAD in collaboration with the Lakeshore Foundation and University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB). MENTOR’s holistic approach is aimed at restoring, improving, and protecting health across the lifespan. 

MENTOR is a free 8-week, virtual wellness program designed for adults who have mobility limitations. By joining the program, individuals receive interactive instruction on mindfulness, exercise, nutrition, and other wellness topics led by trained professionals and health coaches.

This 8-week program includes 40 hours of instruction across 11 evidence-based wellness domains. 

You’ll virtually attend live group classes 5x/week . Education on exercise fundamentals is followed by actual fitness and strengthening classes. A nutritionist not only teaches about healthy food choices but guides you through making healthy recipes in real time. Motivational interviewing techniques facilitate group discussion on wellness behaviors and how to incorporate them into your daily routines. You are even given exercise equipment to ensure you have all the tools you need to set you up for success on your wellness journey. 

People that have completed this program report many benefits including: increased physical activity, improved energy and mental alertness, enhanced self-esteem, improved sleep quality, and positive lifestyle changes. Program participants also praise the program for being engaging, supportive, and an outlet for social connection with peers.
