There are numerous stories of the amazing impact that Bloom Fitness has had on the lives of our athletes. But there would be great value to our program and to the population of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have hard data back up those stories. Well, that possibility now exists.
The University of Houston-Clear Lake has begun research on the Emotional and Physical Benefits of the Bloom Fitness program. The research is lead by UHCL research professors Dr. Kirk English and Dr. Dorothea Lerman. The research will continue for the next 6-9 months and it will be interesting to see how At a very minimum, we know there will be a lot learned that will make this program better for our athletes. This research will be going on for the next 9 months.
