Youth Wellness

We offer virtual youth wellness classes for participants ages 10-12 and 13-14.  The virtual class will teach the youth proper usage of the cardio and weight equipment along with facility rules.  Upon completion of viewing all virtual class sections closely, youth may take the age-appropriate exam:  Level 1 (10-12) and Level 2 (13-14).  Videos may be viewed as many times as needed.

Youth 10-12 yrs     

Youth participants ages 10-12 who pass the exam will be allowed to use the cardio and strength equipment discussed in the videos.  For this age group a parent must remain with the child within arm’s reach while working out on the fitness floor.

Youth 13-14 yrs  

Youth participants ages 13-14 must pass both exams (10-12 & 13-14) and will be allowed to use the cardio and strength equipment discussed in the videos.  Parents are not required to be with youth 13-14 on the fitness floor.
