verity “Zone Active offers more than just weights & “aerobic” classes, it is a very family friendly gym with a wide variety of classes & activities enabling us all to train under the same roof.

Simon & I feel we are being good role models to our children by exercising together. The convenience of being able to train in the one spot is also a huge help. We are very family oriented & Zone Active is a place we can all enjoy together.

Kate & Val have made us all feel welcome since day one. Their wonderfully positive attitude helps facilitate our enthusiasm to train & push ourselves to get the best out of our bodies. Our children thoroughly enjoy their fitness classes & can’t wait to get there each week.

“My daughter absolutely loves attending Bay Dance Academy. The dance teachers have created an atmosphere that is very friendly, inclusive, encouraging & an extremely enjoyable place to be. Thank you for keeping my daughters love of dance alive & helping to shape her into the confident young lady she is today through dance.”

 “Zone Active is the perfect choice for my family as they offer programs from preschool to adult, which gives me the opportunity to workout and get fit while my kids are having fun doing their own program.

As a family, sharing a love for fitness does not only offer us time to bond, but also ensures us more happy, healthy years together. Sharing physical activities with my kids isn’t just a good way to burn calories, but also a great way to create memories which my children will treasure forever… memories of time we spent laughing and simply enjoying each other’s company.” – Vera Striner
