Benefits of Family Fitness

    It’s fun.

    The more you enjoy your exercise routine, the more likely you are to stick with it. You’ll have so much fun moving that you’ll forget you are actually exercising.

    Tones your entire body.

    You may feel sore in places you never knew existed, but it gets results. Aerobic movement targets lots of different muscle groups at once for total body toning.

    Boosts your heart health.

    You not only get aerobic benefits (it really gets your heart rate up), but you also get anaerobic benefits – the kind that help you maintain a good cardiovascular respiratory system.

    Makes you happy.

    Every time you exercise, you release endorphins, which trigger positive feelings throughout the body.

Fit for All Is Best Suited for …

  • Families looking to work out together
  • Kids ages 8+ who can pay attention for the duration of the class

What to Expect


    It is best to wear yoga pants and light tops and footwear, or items that allow for freedom of movement that won’t tangle easily.


    Our family fitness classes are free as a benefit of membership and are for JCC members only.

JCC Family Fitness Instructor

Debbie Thompson

 Debbie’s classes are a “you do you” environment where everyone progresses at their own speed and comfort level. You choose the level you do and burn calories, tone muscles, and have a great time – what a combination!! A bit about Debbie – she wasn’t always fit and fine. She’s lost 60+ pounds and understands how tough life can be. She offers encouragement and support to her students – age, weight, stress – this class is for you. Debbie looks forward to meeting each one of you!

Fitness Is a Core Jewish Value

At the JCC, fitness isn’t just something we do; it’s who we are. Although exercise is not mentioned in the Torah, taking care of one’s health is. In fact, while other belief systems advocate for the healing power of prayer, Judaism encourages people to look after their health and seek counsel from medical experts. In Judaism, good health is not a goal in itself; rather, it is a means to an end – to serve the Creator.
