Star Performance Complex hosts a sporty spectrum of lessons and classes for child and adult health-seekers. Zumba combines Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow dance moves, getting hearts pumping in a fun environment that—unlike the tuna sandwich that’s been in the office fridge since May—never grows stale or tentacles. Preschoolers to advanced athletes can enroll in the gymnastics program, which features a training ground that houses uneven bars, tumbling wedges, and a vault bolstered by a cushy foam-landing pit. Dance classes twinkle toes of all sizes, including senior high-schoolers to adults wearing Dennis the Menace masks, who can enroll in one of more than 20 styles, including tap, ballet, jazz, and hip-hop, as well as a gymnastics-dance hybrid technique. Alternatively, tae kwon do corrals students in classes designed to pique personal fitness, self-defense skills, and self-discipline, while boosting the concentration, memory, and belt-wearing ability of little ones.
For children too young to take part in Star Performance Complex’s vast curriculum, the gym’s drop-in daycare staff oversees safe play while parents exercise or tackle family-unfriendly errands. Kids ages 2.5–12 commingle in the play area, where only sock-covered feet can enter to maintain sanitary confines and provide the gym mats their daily quota of lint. Healthful snacks and meals are provided throughout the day, though some may incur an additional charge (up to $4 per child).

Swiss army knives are famed for the many vital tools hidden in the nooks and crannies of their surprisingly small exterior; Star Performance Complex takes a similar approach to educating kids in fitness. Their instructors offer swimming, gymnastics, tae kwon do, and dance lessons to tykes who enjoy competitive athleticism. They also provide day and night care that combines structured activity with open play in their fun gyms, which feature not only gymnastics equipment but inflatable play houses. Other teachers focus on team sports, training kids to work together in softball, soccer, and cheer. All of this – excepting the swim lessons – takes place in their single, colorful facility full of squeaky hardwood, soft mats, and all the equipment a kids needs to build a strong body.
