Non-Contact Boxing Open Gym

A limited opportunity for our youth to practice skills learned in their boxing classes or for those that simply want to punch the bag. In this hour a wellness associate will monitor the room to ensure safe usage is followed. This is not a structure workout, but rather an opportunity for our youth to access a typical adult only space. Bring your own gloves! Drop in anytime within the hour. Stay the whole time or just some of it, it is your choice! Registration is recommended. Only open to members.

Strength Training

Strength training is the foundation of health, athletic performance, and body building. Your progress is only as good as your technique, and in this 8-week program we will hone your lifting form to safely optimize your results in the gym.

This class is for total beginners to intermediate lifters. Our focus is on optimal form, workout programming, setting and achieving goals, and eating habits. The teenage years are the best time to start building a strong and healthy body.
