WHERE HEALTHY LIVING BEGINS
At the Y, we feel that providing wellness options for all ages is an important piece of supporting families in our community. Youth wellness classes are designed to help build interest and enjoyment in personal fitness that kids can take with them as they grow into adults.
Youth Strength Training – FIT Pass (Ages 12-13)
The FIT (Families In Training) program is designed to strengthen families by providing opportunities to exercise together in a safe and fun environment. The FIT Pass allows youth ages 12-13 to use the Wellness Center by themselves from 2:00-5:00 PM Monday-Sunday during the school year, or at any time with a parent.
In order to earn the FIT Pass, youth ages 12-13 must successfully complete the 3-week Youth Strength Training class, which teaches sound principles of strength training, aerobic endurance, muscle conditioning, as well as Wellness Center safety. Note: FIT Pass privileges do not include use of the Zone.
The Youth Strength Training class is free for those with a family membership. Those with a youth membership may also take the course for a fee.
Youth Yoga (Grades 6-8)
Join us for fun, age-appropriate, small-group yoga classes designed for kids and teens to discover yoga, unwind after school, and recover better from sports. During our 45-minute yoga practice, students will be introduced to yoga poses from the beginner level with proper instructions and progressions. These classes will include breathing instructions, meditation, relaxation techniques, stretching, and strengthening poses.
Total Youth Conditioning (Grades 7-8)
This small-group outdoor training program is designed to get kids moving while having fun and getting fit. Each one-hour class incorporates fun exercises and principles taught by a Personal Trainer certified in strength and conditioning.
