Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.

BACK in the Game

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​10-15% of all young athletes suffer from lower back pain. "BACK in the Game" is our innovative new program using fun group sessions to get kids stronger, more confident and "BACK in the Game".​

​​BACK in the Game is an 8-week (twice-weekly, 16 sessions) physiotherapy-based program designed for youths (11-17) who experience back pain. This is a small group training program, with a maximum of 6 participants per class.

Program Description 

Over the course of this 8-week program, participants will learn strategies for the self-management of their back pain, and will also build a strong core to support them as they go forward with physical activities.

The program's primary focus is on motor control, spinal stability, mobility and strength during functional movement. We utilize Pilates and movement principles to ensure whole body symmetry during these critical growing years.

This program is hosted in our Beijing Movement Studio​ - our premier movement education space.


Participants must be screened by a Fortius physiotherapist prior to being admitted to the program.

Participants will either be admitted directly into the BACK in the Game program or may be referred for additional assessments and/or treatments, if deemed necessary prior to participating in the group-based program.


With your support, the Fortius Foundation  helps subsidize the cost of Back in the Game to help aspiring youth athletes return to play. 

Fees are significantly reduced to $20 per session  ($320 for 8-weeks).


The program is also generously supported by:
