Youth Wellness

We feel that providing wellness options for all ages is an important piece of supporting families in our community. We try to provide classes that can help build an interest and enjoyment in personal fitness that a child can take with them as they grow into adults. Workouts in the Wellness Center, as well as fun group classes make up our youth wellness offerings.
