Youth Fitness FREE Trial Class

September 8, 2020

Glen Carbon, IL

Youth Fitness Grand Opening

September 27, 2020

O’Fallon, IL

My daughter has benefited greatly from the Youth Fitness program. She’s learned everything from basic gym etiquette to proper lifting technique with light weight & PVC pipes and a wide variety of exercises. She looks forward to the challenging and fun total body exercise program that she gets with each class. Crystal also identified an IT band weakness and prescribed additional stretches and strengthening exercises to help correct the problem. Youth Fitness has increased her interest in training to achieve total body fitness and to help prevent injury in the many different sports she plays.

Tyson said the free trial class in Glen Carbon on September 8th was the best class he has ever attended and wanted to know when the next class was!  The Coaches as always are so awesome and make these classes such a success!!
