“We are so excited to be opening the GiGiFIT Studio,” Robin Lea-Amos, executive director, said in the press release. “We have been aiming to build a fitness studio for some time to offer our community more fitness classes and promote health, socialization and leadership opportunities.”
GiGi’s Playhouse currently serves 800 families and offers about 9,000 hours of free programming, which includes therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills and motor skills every year.
With the additional space, the organization expects to help twice as many families.
