We’ve got something very exciting planned for September that we can’t wait to announce! But first, we’re so excited to share the scoop on all the great things that took place this past month at Parker Place!
August was definitely awesome here at Parker Place – our newest friends enjoyed every minute of the VIP variety classes last week! On Tuesday, kids were moving and grooving to the music in Margareta’s hip hop class. Some kids had tried hip hop before, while others had no experience at all and found it a fun new way to exercise.
After expending all that energy, the kids took to our fun kitchen classroom, where Melissa led the group in using delicious white beans for homemade hummus and fresh parsley for a bright, flavorful pesto. Check out the teamwork squeezing the lemons!
Then, on Thursday night, Devin’s Warrior Kids class challenged our young friends not only to find their balance and strength tackling obstacles, but also their star power while recreating the experience of being on the popular TV show, “America Ninja Warrior.” Our grand opening event back in July featured a mini-version of this class, where it was super popular with all the kids in attendance. The “real” class this past week was even more so!
After a water break, the older kids learned what it means to eat real food, from our dietitian extraordinaire, Becky Jacobs, while the younger kids learned how eating all the colors of the rainbow gives us the vitamins and minerals we need to be superheroes! The whole crew worked with Anna in the kitchen to recreate one of their favorite recipes: pizza! This pizza had a whole grain tortilla crust, tomatoes marinated in olive oil and spices mixed by the kids themselves and topped with multicolored veggies. Presenting a fresh and healthy spin on a kids’ menu favorite made trying new veggies and flavors a treat, even for picky eaters. Did the kids like it? Absolutely – just look at these smiling faces!
If you didn’t make it to our Awesome August events, don’t worry – you haven’t missed all the fun! We’ve decided to turn September into Parker Place Preview Month! Throughout the month of September we will be showcasing our talented instructors as they teach a variety of our wellness center classes. From high-energy Zumba Kids to centering and calming yoga routines, kids will have the opportunity to experience all that our fitness programs have to offer. Remember, though: Parker Place isn’t just for the kids, it’s for the whole family! Don’t miss our culinary expert, Anna, giving parents tips on how to fit a nutritious dinner into their busy weekday routines, or Carol, our champion of the garden, teaching families how to grow their own herbs to use for delicious meals and snacks. Check out the calendar below to pick which classes would be the most fun for your family:
