Check out the Patch story on GTC's Snowflake Fitness program.
The program is an innovative and exciting youth fitness program, open to all youth in grades 1-10. It will be fun, but with a focus on improving your
child's overall fitness level. Winter provides the perfect opportunity to gain an edge for all sports seasons, or to maintain fitness levels over the long winter
months. Some of the benefits of this program are:
- improve cardio-respiratory fitness
- build self-esteem and confidence
- improve endurance, agility, balance, and core strength
- injury prevention
- enhance performance in all sports
The program will be run by professional personal trainers and coaches with in depth knowledge of developing and monitoring fitness programs for all ages. Coaches may change based on enrollment, but will include:

Jeremy has over 10 years experience as a trainer and strength and conditioning specialist in private, commercial and corporate settings. In his experience of training all age groups from 6 to 70 years of age, he has learned that one thing always remains true when it comes to exercise, "It should always be fun!".
