The lifestyle of kid’s today is drastically different than it was 20 years ago. The days of endless wiffle ball games and bike rides have taken a back seat to texting and television. Childhood obesity has increased by four times over the past forty years and statistics show that 70% of our youth that are overweight now will be obese as adults. Our Youth Fitness center offers a variety of programs to combat this challenge as well as provide a fun and stimulating environment to help your child develop a lifetime of healthy habits.
Children aged 8-15 may choose to work out at our Kids Gym located adjacent to the main club. Children 12 and over may work out in the main fitness center provided that they take junior fitness training and work out with a parent present. Our Kids Gym has open gym time and structured classes, as well as sport performance training. We have lots of options!
If your child does express interest in working with a trainer, you might wonder what a trainer can do for your child. A good trainer can help your child find enjoyable activities while being taught the proper way to exercise for their age and goals. A trainer can also teach your child how to lift weights, resulting in more strength, protection from injuries, and higher self confidence. A trainer can help determine what your child’s capabilities are and teach your child how to exercise safely and effectively, and most importantly, establish good habits for a lifetime of fitness.
