If you have Multiple Sclerosis, taking on this challenge means you’re making a decision that you no longer want MS to control your life. It is a lifestyle of fitness, nutrition and mindset in conquering this disease. With MS Fitness challenge you have the support you need of certified fitness professionals, trained to work with people who have MS or other chronic health conditions, and a community of people who have taken the challenge and are also working towards winning the battle against multiple sclerosis.


After my diagnosis, “and reading about it, and not really finding anything positive… I started realizing, this is not the direction I want to go. I’m a fighter, and I need to fight this. I need to get back into the gym and do it the way I’ve always done things, and that’s physically.” — David Lyons

Normal fitness trainers don’t know how to work with people with MS. They don’t understand our struggles. That’s why we started this program.

Whatever your physical abilities or fitness level, you can benefit from an exercise program. Join us in the gym, take the MS Fitness Challenge, and take control of your life.



The MS Fitness Challenge relies on donations from people like you. We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and 100% of all donations go to the cost of the MS Fitness Challenge program.

Every dollar helps those suffering with Multiple Sclerosis improve their lives through health & fitness. Your tax deductible donation can change someone’s life in ways you can only imagine. Please consider making a contribution today, and help those affected by this debilitating disease regain the mobility and independence they lost.



During the MSFC I have gained so much strength in my legs that I’m actually able to get out of my wheelchair and use my walker again! I have gained a great deal of strength because of this challenge and I am so thankful that I have also gained energy as well. Thanks Kendra and David and all of the wonderful Trainers with Heart at MS Fitness Challenge for starting this. I will never quit!

Serena, MSFC Participant

This program is definitely empowering to those of us fighting to find better pathways to improving the strength and mobility we struggle to maintain with this disease. This program gave me a platform and an outlet to arm myself with hard work and knowledge in the hopes of improving my own unique circumstances. For that privilege I am eternally grateful. Thank you.

Rene, MSFC Participant

I am so fortunate and thankful to be part of the MS Fitness Challenge. This program is life-changing and I hope that others suffering from MS can join and have a chance to rise above a disease that strips us of our independence and so much more. It’s a way to fight back and not let MS have the final say in how we live our lives.

C.K., MSFC Participant
