About Us2018-01-25T08:12:37+00:00

Zone Active is all about Family Fitness & Fun. We believe that through example parents can inspire their children to adopt an active lifestyle and vice versa. There is nothing better than watching a PlayGym class with toddlers learning gross motor skills like hanging from a bar and at the same time their parent is mastering pull-ups in the CrossFit session – it is very inspiring to see the positive impact that sharing a workout space creates within Family Units!!

Zone Active has created a unique Family Friendly Environment where adults, toddlers, kids and teens all have a common space to get involved in CrossFit, Gymnastics, PlayGym, tumbling, cheerleading, Yoga, Dance and Nutrition Education.

We saw a need within our own Family Unit to be able to go to the gym with kids and also have the kids involved and exposed to the benefits of creating a foundation for life in fitness.

As busy parents with 3 children under 8 – Kate & Valeriy created a solution for the need of being able to have the Family involved in Fitness and created what’s now a thriving hub of Activity known as ZONE ACTIVE!!!
