Train to Inspire: Making the seemingly impossible a reality

Our Mission

At Train to Inspire, our mission is to make the seemingly impossible a reality for people with disabilities.

We believe people with disabilities should be given the same opportunities and life experiences others have access to.

Our Story

Train to Inspire was founded by Joe Hogan who has a vision of making the seemingly impossible a reality for people living with disabilities. We focus mostly on physical activities and creating a positive community for our participants. Whether it’s rock climbing, Tae Kwon Do, nerf gun battles, biking, or our premier annual accessible obstacle course, we make sure everyone has a chance to participate and do things many of them have never done before.

We offer free personal training and group fitness for individuals with disabilities. We also have several free monthly events–check them out above!
