#HelpMeFit Mindset

Disabled But Not Really aspires to help the vulnerable develop a limitless mindset. We see it every day. With proper access, such a mindset can empower individuals to transform their lives for the better. Enter Disabled But Not Really’s commitment – #HelpMeFit

#HelpMeFit Challenge

We help our DBNR athletes find their fit.

The #HelpMeFit Challenge is an opportunity for you to get the support and motivation needed to improve your physical, mental, and emotional health. Beyond the physical fitness part, we’ll offer you nutrition and mental health tips. We cram a lot into twelve weeks—it’s intense. But we’ll get you hooked on those positive feelings so you can keep up your momentum post-program. I can’t wait to meet you soon and get to it!

#HelpMeFit Kansas City

Starting in Kansas City

DBNR is committed to helping people living with a disability discover the right mindset for achievement. With the motto “don’t let your struggle be your identity”, Disabled But Not Really and the #HelpMeFit challenge is dedicated to helping both people with disabilities and their community reach their highest potential. DBNR works with inclusive training and other protocols for tuning workouts to meet the specific needs of each of our sponsored athletes. We also work with the communities in which our athletes live to support mindfulness for access and blended spaces for everyBODY!  Our Help Me Fit Mobile is the driving tool that will allow us to further our reach and impact!
