As a future fitness provider for special populations, I petition for change in the cost and the accessibility of personal fitness and training plans. As of now, many are struggling to afford their needs for their disability, whether that is numerous doctors appointments, medications, equipment and so on. As a country we are focused on the quantity of the lifespan, not the quality. Although these things are important, doctors visits and certain medical equipment, what is really needed is physical activity, affordable nutrition, and mental health resources. These two things can prevent and decrease the need in special populations, but due to the affordability and accessibility, those with special needs focus on medications and frequent doctors visits. If doctors prescribe fitness plans, nutritional foods, and mental health resources, then insurance should be able to cover those needs to some capacity, instead of just covering doctors visits, medications and equipment. This is scientifically proven, that fitness, nutrition, and mental health prevention are the most basic first steps that must be taken. If we as a country can recognize this need, then we will start seeing an increase in the quality of life in all forms of disabilities. 

Insurance companies, individual contractors, and governmental acknowledgment are the best ways that I see to change this epidemic of special populations.
