The goal of Equip 2 Thrive  is for each student to enjoy being active, no matter what their ability is, while learning important skills.  What makes Equip2Thrive different is that the kids are active for the entire class and are having a blast!  Kids can’t wait to attend his classes each week because they get to participate the entire time and learn new skills in a friendly, non-competitive environment.

Come check out a class and see how E2T will get your child active, learning new skills, and having a lot of fun!

Equip 2 Thrive is helping kids learn lifetime skill, not just a one time thrill.
