Teen Fit
Ages 13 – 16
You keep your skin clean. You condition your hair. You’re eating right. You’re doing all you can to look and feel great. But are you missing out on an important part of a healthier lifestyle? No matter what your age or shape, you should exercise daily. Not only does exercise tone your body so you can wear your favorite jeans, it strengthens your muscles, keeps your bones strong, and improves your skin. And there are more benefits of exercise – increased relaxation, better sleep and mood, strong immune function, and more. This class will make you stronger, faster, and more powerful, and make you feel better, by performing high-energy functional movements that are natural and safe.

Tuesdays, 5 – 5:45 p.m.

For absences due to serious illness/injury (doctor’s note required) or absences known at least one week in advance, we will make every effort to schedule make-up classes. Placement in make-up classes is based on the schedule of comparable classes and their availability.
