Youth Fitness Certification Class - 2/23 | 2-3pm
The Gordon Jewish Community Center recognizes that youth and teens are uniquely positioned to develop lifelong habits that can either help them, or hurt them. Living and leading a healthy lifestyle includes being involved in physical activity. This certification program is for members
ages 10 to 13 to help them safely utilize equipment, better understand the benefits of cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training, and properly utilize the fitness center. In this free program, members ages 10 to 13 obtain knowledge and practical experience under the guidance of certified personal trainers. Successful completion of the program will allow them to work out in the fitness center on selected equipment without the supervision of their parent or guardian. It includes a program manual, lecture and discussion, demonstration, and hands-on experience. Participants must pass a written test and a practical proficiency test in order to obtain certification. A certification badge will be presented upon successful completion and must be worn anytime the participant is working out in the fitness center.
