It’s a different world from when we were young. Instead of kids playing outside getting healthy and fit they are indoors being entertained by TV shows, video games, computers and cell phones. We want to change that. We have fitness programs that will expose your child to all forms of activity… from traditional strength training exercises, yoga and pilates to sports drills and sports specific workouts.
Our kids Personal training program is designed for kids between 8 and 19 years old. After a fitness evaluation, we tailor a program based on your goals, specific needs and ability of your child.
• Increase strength, Endurance and flexibility
• Protection from injuries
• Higher self-esteem and confidence
• Increased concentration and Decrease in mood swings
Each session includes a warm up, strengthening, cardio and stretching. Our sessions are designed for weight loss and the goal is to help motivate and keep your child as active as possible but at the same time having fun for 60 minutes. This approach will keep them wanting to continue with sessions and make it a lifelong decision to stay healthy and fit.
We can make you child the best he can be at any specific sport. Before we start working with your child we take a comprehensive full body assessment using the Functional Movement Screen or FMS. The FMS uses seven movements designed to identify asymmetries and muscular imbalances, weaknesses, and dysfunctional movements that could increase your child’s risk to injury. With this information from our test we will be able to create a personalized and custom workout program for your child to help reduce injury and improve their performance at any sport.
Strength training may stunt the growth of children and that children should not lift weights until they are 12 years old. There is simply no evidence to support either of these statements. In fact, all of the major fitness and medical organizations in the U.S. recommend strength training for youth, assuming that basic guidelines are adhered to and that appropriate leadership is present. And about the question of age, children can begin to train with weights as soon as they are able to accept and follow directions—usually around the age of seven or eight.
