Children and Youth Programs

Our child and youth fitness programs are designed with whole body health in mind. Lead by qualified fitness professionals in a motivating and inspiring atmosphere classes encourage physical activity, increase body awareness, increase self-esteem and are guaranteed fun! With childhood obesity on the rise and a decrease of physical activity in society we encourage our young members to move their bodies in a safe environment with their friends. They get to work out just like mom and dad and enjoy the amazing atmosphere that the OAC offers. With numerous class options we have something for everyone.
