PowerUp Fitness offers a variety of unique fitness programs just for kids! All PowerUp programs are designed to provide children with the opportunity to become more active, physically and mentally fit, while building the framework for development into healthy adolescents and active adults.
PowerUp classes have the potential to improve self-esteem, reduce childhood obesity, and shape positive attitudes by making fitness fun! Through implementing the PowerUp Programs in schools, fitness centers, childcare, and throughout communities, we can make a change toward a healthier, more active generation now and for the future.
