Kids should not “work out.” Kids should play. And when they play, they should move and have fun!
Fit Kids focuses on fun and games. We use traditional childhood games like dodgeball, freeze tag, power ball, and more to keep it fun. Children learn foundation movements like the squat, push ups, pull ups, climbing, jumping, and elementary gymnastic movements.
As our society moves further away from physical activity both in the school and at home, we see a growing need to incorporate health and fitness into the lives of our kids. One of our main aims of the Fit Kids program is that we instill the value of fitness in kids at an early age. It is important to make sure kids find fitness fun. If they enjoy being active and see the benefits in how they feel, then they are more likely to keep fitness a priority throughout their lives. Eating healthy becomes a natural and normal choice and being active becomes something they enjoy doing. By laying a solid foundation of fitness ideals from an early age, we can reduce risk of disease, injury, and build a better future for our young ones.
In addition, you will see that your child learns to follow directions, listen, communicate, and play with others. Every class includes game play and positive reinforcement. Your child’s confidence, both physically and mentally, will grow with each class.
We have witnessed children and teens lose considerable amounts of weight, resulting in a major shift in body image and a big boost in self-esteem. This is especially important and beneficial in the pre-teen and teen years.
Kids and Teens who Exercise:
- have healthy bones, muscles, and joints
- maintain a healthy body weight
- are more attentive and do better in school
- have higher self-esteem and self-confidence
