In 2008, I established Aplus Trainer LLC, DBA, KID SURGE to provide children with an enrichment program that instills fitness, sports, critical thinking, problem solving skills and positive character development to create a happy and healthy life experience. During classes, children learn neurological, gross and fine motor skills as well as positive character traits which will be reinforced through teamwork, self-discipline, confidence, and respect for peers and adults. My company also offers children’s birthday parties to enhance their physical growth in a fun, engaging, and interactive celebration.
