2019 Youth Fitness Programs

Our Youth Fitness 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.
