What started out as a class assignment for Chris Speziali turned into a career.
17 years ago Chris was studying for his masters in special education and he had an assignment to teach a special needs child an activity in ten hours.
Speziali taught a child in Roslyn how to jump rope and from there, his love for these children blossomed.
The so called “jump rope” child’s parents then asked Chris to teach other exercise activities to their kid and he did.
