Our qualified staff oversees Teen Workout to instruct teens on the proper use of equipment, document correct seat adjustments, and record the appropriate resistance amounts. The goal of Teen Workout is certification, which allows a teen to use the fitness room whenever a parent is present. In order to use the workout room before the age of 16, Teen Workout participation is required. If attending Teen Workout for the first time, a parent or legal guardian must sign a waiver before participating.
