This class is currently being offered in the APJCC’s Outdoor Fitness Center.

Children ages 10 and up can learn to use the Fitness Center in a safe and effective manner through this five-session program. (For children 10-12 years old, this program is REQUIRED in order to be admitted to the Fitness Center. After completing the program, children can work out with parental supervision. Children ages 13 and up can also benefit from this program, but it’s not required.)

During the first four sessions, your child will learn about different components of exercise including flexibility, cardiovascular, strength training, balance and core training, and safe use of the equipment. During the fifth, individually scheduled session, they will be taken through a practical examination with the instructor.

Dates and times are based on participant request and instructor availability. Rates are $200 for Full Center Members, $250 for Social Members or non-members. Rates are per child, for groups of two or more. Private instruction is $235 per child for Full Center Members. More info: fitnesscenter@jvalley.org or call the Fitness Desk at 408.357.7419.
