Cooper Fitness Center IGNITE!
Do you want your kids active in a program that combines athletic training, nutrition, and education, and is a ton of fun? We have just what you’re looking for.
Cooper Fitness Center’s IGNITE! youth fitness program is back this fall and quickly becoming the after-school activity of choice for many kids. They’re playing sports, games, and other fitness activities, and having a blast.
