About Megan Cooperman

Assistant Director of Group Fitness

Megan.Cooperman@ColumbiaAssociation.org

I strive to offer the best classes with the best instructors in the community. In any class, I believe members should follow the instructor’s guidelines; however, it is key to make the experience work for their needs. Group fitness should be fun and motivating, and there is a right fit and class for every person at CA. Our classes, even if they hurt in a good way, should make you want to come back again and again.
