Family Fitness Fun - NEW
In Family Fitness Fun on Sundays from 10:05-10:50 am, parents and school-age kids work together on speed ladders, exercise balls, and light weights. Plus there is plenty of cardio, resistance (your own body weight), speed, agility and quickness. A very fun way to set a great example. Free for members. ChildWatch will open on 10 am on Sundays so we can take care of your little ones.
