Your child will be introduced to beginning sport concepts and basic rules by trying different sports. At this age most kids are able to participate
independently, so parents are invited to stay and quietly observe; jumping in only if needed.

I am excited to say, that I am the first franchise owner of Northern New Jersey. I have had a life long passion for health and fitness. I began competitively swimming at the age of five and continued all the way through college. I graduated from Springfield College, with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. During this time I was a four-time all American swimmer who was chosen to travel to the Far East, to swim with the Olympic teams from China, Japan and Korea.

I currently reside in New Jersey with my wife, Janet, and we are blessed with three beautiful children. I have been a jack of all trades'; my career path has taken me from working for multiple clothing retailers, as an outside sales representative, VP of Operations for a construction sub-contractor, to owning and operating a dog grooming salon. I decided I am most comfortable in the driver seat as an entrepreneur doing what I love, fitness, sports and working with children.
