We are so excited to welcome in our new Weller family members this coming school year. This can be the year that you achieve all those physical goals you set for yourself. It is our hope that you push toward being the healthiest and most active you have ever been. That could come in the form of becoming a more skillful all-around athlete or improving on your five components of fitness (cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and body composition) from our Five for Life Fitness curriculum. Which ever it is, with your hard work and dedication anything is possible.
Stay Active! And we can't wait to work with you!
