Fitness for Life

It’s our motto and should be yours too! Are you looking for something new and fun to get your kids moving? Do you want to provide educational opportunities where they can learn about their fitness and health? Then Top Secret Spartans is what you’re looking for!

Our youth fitness/wellness programs promote healthy choices and active lifestyles by combining PLAY, (think games, fitness activities, and fun movement) with EDUCATION. Each class will vary in games and activities to keep kids engaged and excited. The class is designed and led by certified instructors who are trained to customize programs, teach lessons, work with K-8 students, and encourage collaboration among all participants. Our program is designed to improve their strength endurance, cardiorespiratory fitness, athletic abilities and overall wellbeing. Our goal is to create POSITIVE & FUN learning experiences so kids walk away feeling their best – motivated and confident in their ability to move, build healthy habits, and take charge of their health.

Only 20% of children are physically active each day
