CT-Based Startup Creates HomeField - the First Fitness Platform for All Abilities

When one thinks of being inclusive, do they consider those with disabilities and special needs? This is the question Daniel Caridi, Co-Founder of HomeField, asks when sharing the company's story. Several years ago, Caridi and his Co-Founder, Gage DeDominicis, started volunteering at a local gym teaching fitness to about five people with special needs and disabilities. Mondays and Thursdays quickly became the highlights of their week. Due to rising concerns about the pandemic, they turned to online classes. Just in their immediate area, classes skyrocketed to 80+ people engaged and working out. If they could have that kind of impact locally, imagine what could be done on a national scale. That's when Daniel and Gage realized they were onto something.

Their mission? To create a sustainable business that positively impacts the world. 

HomeField's mission? To create fun and meaningful experiences that inspire inclusion and build trust together.

It was then that the first online health and wellness platform designed for all abilities was born. HomeField.fit serves people with physical disabilities, special needs, older adults, and anyone who does not have easy access to fitness and wellness content that fits their needs. The platform offers 100+ on-demand classes as well as daily live stream classes in dance, martial arts, yoga, mindfulness and more.

They hired international fitness guru, Billy Blanks Jr., to manage and build HomeField's catalog of online classes as President and Head of Content. "I'm excited about working with a team that is dedicated to creating a wide variety of content that is fun, easy to follow, and most importantly inclusive to all levels of abilities and ages." The company's CEO, Liza Rivera Salta, brings over 30 years of business experience, coupled with a passion for serving the special needs community. "It's a community environment. We're all the same in that we want to work out, be fit, make friends and feel included- and I think that's a key differentiation for HomeField," Salta emphasized.

HomeField has also partnered with the Special Olympics of CT, Abilis, a few public school systems, and corporations. Individuals are encouraged to try the platform for free by signing up at www.homefield.fit. HomeField fits everybody and helps bring fun fitness to all by moving through barriers.
