Private/Family Lessonincludes only you or your child/ren. Nearly every student will learn quickly and well in this environment. A family lesson includes up to 3 students from the same family living in the same household.  Please contact for information and pricing for family lessons with 4 or more students.

Semi-Private Lesson: includes two students (not from the same family). This smaller environment allows for the fun of a friend (and a little healthy peer pressure) without the busyness of a group.  Both families must submit a registration form.

Group Lesson: not currently offered in Chapel Hill.... we are still deciding if groups will be offered at O2 Fitness.
