Youth Exercise Programs

Our Youth Exercise programs have been created to help children build healthy bodies and establish healthy lifestyles, including healthy eating and physical activity, in their daily lives.  Studies have shown that positive exercise habits formed in childhood frequently carry over into adulthood.

Step, Rep, and Prep

This class, open to ages 6-15, starts our health and wellness journey as we learn how to balance three main concepts of exercise and nutrition.

This class will be part classroom and part physical exercise. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you can be active in.

Participation level: Beginner.  See the program guide for availability.
