PE6-G: Fitness Class for Girls

A New Private Fitness Class for Six Year Old Girls

First Three Class Sessions - FREE!*

​Most of our children simply do not get enough exercise, pandemic or not. The importance of physical activity on a child's physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development cannot be overstated.  

 

FitYouth is a program developed by personal trainer - James Camastra, MS PES CSCS and Youth Fitness Specialist - for children and youth, ages 5 to 17, in the Metropolitan New York City area.  The program’s goal is to make it easy for children/youth to get more exercise and physical activity in a way that is simple, fun, and productive.

 

FitYouth exercises are based on traditional movement: running, jumping, skipping, pushing, pulling, balance, etc.  

 

Starting September 22nd, FitYouth will be piloting a new class for 5-7 year old females, PE6-G.  During this two week pilot your daughter can join up to three classes for free.*

    • We are working to secure an indoor location in the coming weeks and will keep you posted.
