Client-Centered, Accessible, Trauma-Sensitive Wellness Services
Ascent Wellness Program
A Wellness Community
We provide wellness services - Fitness, Yoga and Mindfulness, FLOAT, and Nutrition - in fully customized ways. Specifically, in ways that support both mental and physical health promotion. Wherever you are in your health journey we will focus on creating an affirming, safe and enjoyable experience for you.
Who Are We ?
We are, above all, a clinically-informed wellness community. Our model is a model of social justice: we believe that quality wellness services should be available for the whole community. Our mission is to constantly grow and explore how to be a diverse, culturally-humble, accessible space for our clients and team.
We understand that wellness spaces/services can be standardized in ways that only reach a small slice of the population, so we will work with our clients to adapt the space and the session to their personal needs, vision and cultural identities.
ACCESSIBILITY is what MATTERS.
ALL levels of mobility welcome. All bodies. All cultures. All races. All abilities. LGBTQ brave space. Body Positive Space. We collaborate directly with experienced physical and mental health professionals to recommend good approaches for body-mind connection practices and adaptation of services. We focus on continuing education and we have an internal training program for our providers. Ask us more!
In addition, we provide home services and services in safe, natural spaces.
All languages welcome
We work with translation services and cultural liaisons in the community.
All income levels welcome
We work with very flexible sliding scales and a sponsorship program.
A Literal Marriage of Ideas
Our work with clients with disabilities and chronic physical and mental illness started about a decade ago when Tony Langtimm created his first adaptive fitness business in Milwaukee. The mission statement of the gym was to create accessible services for the Milwaukee community, based on the ASCENT method. This business became known as ASCENT GYM, headquartered at Milwaukee Turners.
In light of the recent ruling by the Wisconsin Supreme Court pertaining to Wisconsin’s “Safer at Home” order, the Ascent Wellness Program will continue to abide by social distancing guidelines. Currently, our doors are still closed as well as any service in an indoor setting.
We are deeply aware of our obligation to our staff, their families, our community and our clients to follow research-based best practices when it comes to reopening. We’re currently implementing telehealth services and have created strict safety measures for outdoor services. These measures have been put in place to ensure a safe, enjoyable movement/mindfulness experience until we open our doors.
In the meantime, we’ll continue doing what we do best: supporting you with your wellness lifestyle and keeping you motivated to manage stress/symptoms via movement, meditation and nutrition.
We appreciate your continued support and patience—and can’t wait until we can once again safely gather.
Note: the Ascent Wellness Program is being implemented by Ascent for Life, Inc, FLOATMilwaukee, Siddhi Yoga and Summit Wellness. These guidelines are followed by all of these agencies.
