Kids-Fit is a specially designed class made to meet the unique fitness needs of children aged 7-12. Children get to stay fit through play and exercise, both competitive and non-competitive in nature.
What is Kids-Fit?
Guidelines from the Department of Health say that children aged 7-12 need at least 60 minutes of daily physical activity. And the majority of this exercise should be aerobic in nature. Kids-Fit class at Gym Plus was designed to help children aged 7-12 to reach this goal in a fun, creative and friendly environment.
Everyone can enjoy the upbeat music, fun games and fitness moves. Our highly-trained Gym Plus instructors motivate the children, adapting to their fitness abilities and interests. Every class is different but we usually start with warm up exercises. Then the class moves onto more aerobic style activities and we include some stretch exercises at the end. Children can go at their own pace and are encouraged to try new activities and focus on new skills each week.
We include competitive and non-competitive games into the classes to motivate and challenge the children. They learn how to work as a team while developing different muscle groups. If they don’t enjoy a particular activity they don’t have to continue with it. We encourage the children to talk to us about which activities they like and what challenges them. We mix it up to ensure they enjoy coming each week.
