Youth Fitness, Nutrition Classes

Kids in Kitchen

Parks and Recreation is offering a variety of youth fitness and nutrition classes at the Multi-Generational Center this fall.

Homeschool Exploration is for kids ages 7-14. We’ve redefined this class to incorporate activities that will explore multiple dimensions of health and wellness. Kids will work their creative minds as well as their bodies. Activities will include, but aren't limited to, arts and crafts, painting, games, sports, strength training and hiking (trail walking). Classes will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2 p.m.; next session starts Oct. 15!

Kids in the Kitchen is for young aspiring chefs ages 3-5. Creating good eating habits for kids starts early. Helping in the kitchen with basic meal prep and choosing colorful foods in the grocery store will get them excited to try new things! In this fun class, children will learn how to eat healthy and enjoy foods that are nutritious through a variety of activities. They will learn how to prep and prepare fun, simple and healthy meals. Two sessions are being offered this fall, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Ghoulishly Good Eats will get your kids ages 5-12 into the holiday spirit with fun, creative and healthy snacks. Kids will learn basic food prep, choosing healthy options and how to be safe yet have fun in the kitchen! Enjoy some holiday themed nutritious foods. This class is being offered during the AJUSD fall break timeframe.

We Run For Fun Club is an active, healthy club for youth ages 8-14 who like to run, jog, and improve their physical fitness. A variety of running activities will help participants learn goal setting, pacing and proper hydration. These aspects of the club allow a social, team building and motivational experience for everyone. We Run for Fun Club will be running on our indoor track as well as outside on the beautiful desert trails on the north-east of the MGC. The fee for the club includes entry into the October and November I Run for AJHS Athletics Series. The final run will take place at the Wellness Event on Saturday, Nov. 16.

Parents, while your kids are getting a workout and learning good lifestyle habits, you can too! If you haven’t been to the Multi-Generational Center, stop by and tour the facility. Check out our state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment; and see our “million-dollar view” of the Superstition Mountains from our indoor walking track. Included in each membership is more than 45 group fitness classes. We offer a wide range to fit everyone’s needs: Zumba, tai chi, pilates, hip hop, ball classes, Tabata, total body conditioning and more than nine different styles of yoga classes. We are also an approved SilverSneakers, Silver & Fit and Optum facility.
