Our Mission Is To Use Behavioral Science to Engage Others to Lead happier and Healthier Lives

HISTORY.

BehaviorFit was formed in Fall 2015. It originally started as a blog, yet has grown to include workshops, infographics, and consulting. CEO and founder, Nick Green, recognized there were gaps in various fields (behavior analysis, physical activity, and obesity to name a few…), yet each could benefit one another. BehaviorFit expanded its services to address these gaps to communicate the essentials of physical activity and basic health needs from each area. Thus, BehaviorFit was born and continually evolves to bring the best information to those he knows and others he may not (thank you social media).

BehaviorFit prides itself in creating high-quality content to service others. Most importantly, recommendations* under the BehaviorFit umbrella of services are based on the best science and research available at that time.

*Recommendations are always subject change in the light of new and exciting scientific findings

Since 2000, she has worked in disability services and has instructed in a wide range of settings.

Gina experiences first-hand the glaring reality that individuals with special needs are often under served in the areas of physical activities and related leisure skills.

Her unique experience benefits BehaviorFit by programming physical activity and play with the application of Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior, via natural environment training and verbal modules. She applies pairing, and lag schedules to increase duration and variety of responses related to physical activities. Her current research interests include stereotypy as relates to physical activity and diet.
