WEST ORANGE, NJ – A brand new Kids Fitness Center is the centerpiece of a new health and wellness initiative targeting tweens and teens at JCC MetroWest. The program includes a new fitness center with age-appropriate equipment, group exercise classes and personal training.

The only kid-targeted fitness program with a dedicated space in the Suburban Essex area is located at the Leon & Toby Cooperman JCC, 760 Northfield Ave in West Orange.

The New Kids Fitness Program was developed in response to demand from parents to actively engage children and young teens in age appropriate and well-supervised physical activities. The Kids Fitness Center houses equipment specifically designed for ages 10-13. Group exercise classes will also be offered for kids ages 7-13 including indoor cycling, boot camps, dance fitness, boxing and yoga.

“We are thrilled to be the only place in the community to offer such an extensive Kids Fitness program. We know that one in five children in the United States is overweight and this number continues to rise,” said Marcy Burach, Membership Director JCC MetroWest. “We also know that not every kid is a soccer or basketball player. Therefore, no matter how active your child is, we have a place for them to learn and enjoy good exercise habits and live a healthier lifestyle.”

The Kids Fitness Center (Ages 10-13) will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. For more information on membership and group class schedule please call 973-530-3443 or visit jccmetrowest.org/kidsfitness.

JCC MetroWest has been successful in implementing programs that offer members a unique approach to fitness. Some special programming includes bi-annual Triathlons, TRX training, the JFit Challenge, Group X Mash-Up Events (a sampling of different instructors and group classes), Golf Training program and the very popular Turkey Burn in November; a boot camp where members utilize frozen turkeys and sacks of potatoes for their workout, all of which are donated to food pantries and shelters for Thanksgiving meals. In addition to its fitness offerings, JCC MetroWest features wellness programs and referrals through the onsite Saint Barnabas Wellness Institute.

The JCC MetroWest fitness facility combines 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art fitness equipment as well as over 100 fitness classes and is the only gym in the area to offer a dedicated space for Kids Fitness.
