The specialized facility in Curacao helping people with a paralysis to keep moving forward
Since 2016, the AP Center has given people suffering from paralysis a place that they can defy the odds, improving their quality of life by applying to one of our programs. With passionate assistants and certified trainers, our facility has bringing different benefits physically, mentally and socially because we believe that everyone that has the motivation to move forward are the ones that actually does and here at the AP Center we are the vehicle to help you move forward through exercise.
You can register to get one hour 2 or 3 times a week to workout independently on our specialized equipment’s and tools in our facility
Based upon your goals we will create a one-on-one Activity-Based Training program guided by a certified Activity-Based Trainer with the goal to improve function and performance.
Based upon your functionality a trainer will create a custom-cut exercise plan where you will get hands-on instructions that you must follow using special equipment’s and tools within our facility.
My decision to go the AP Center has changed my life, and my thoughts. My trainers Michel and Valentina have so much enthusiasm and patience to help me that I would like to go to the training every day if that were possible. You get the inspiration through others fighting to move forward, be fit and to gain more. I am incredibly happy to see my progress in walking after only 1 month of Activity-Based Training at the AP Center.
In November 2017 I started at the AP Center. I am seeing much progress with my hands. Now I can raise my right hand, move it, and bring it to my face. Those was things I could not do in the past. Through the exercises my body is more flexible. I am going with much enthusiasm to the AP Center of Fundashon Alton Paas. It is also a place to meet many people and make new friends.
I am 91 years young and it is already 2 years that I am going to AP Center to do exercises that are helping me enormously. I can now move much faster. I do not have pain anymore and do not have to go to the physical therapist. I get up in the morning with much encouragement. I have to say that the trainers and assistants at AP Center are doing their maximum efforts to help everyone who nocks at the door of AP Center. They are immensely helpful and make me laugh every day.
