Pondz Family Fitness & Learning Center Opens in Largo

Largo, FL – Pondz Family Fitness & Learning Center announces its grand opening in Largo on June 30, 2007 with a mix of adult fitness classes, personal training and youth afterschool programs for area residents.

The owners, James and Alicia Ponds are combining their skills to help individuals and families meet their fitness and academic goals. James is a certified professional trainer, kick boxing and kung fu fitness instructor. “We are building a team of excellent personal trainers that will motivate our members to go beyond their limits,” Ponds said. “Our fitness programs will help gain energy, lose unwanted pounds and improve quality of life.”

Alicia is a seasoned business manager and currently a magnet teacher in Pinellas County Schools. Her goal is to create a relaxed family atmosphere conducive to focus and learning. “In the fall, we will be offering math and reading tutoring services from board certified teachers,” she said. “It won’t be a babysitting service it will be a homework assistance program that includes FCAT preparation.”
