Preparing for a Future of Fitness
Starting off right can help kids build healthy habits for a lifetime. Kids as young as 9 who’ve had a Youth Fitness Orientation with a parent may use the fitness centre with that parent. Youth can also book a FitMe Youth session along with a parent to get a balanced, safe exercise routine recommended by our fitness staff.
