FUN FITNESS FOR CHILDREN
Fitkids is a fun fitness initiative aimed towards children as a during or after school activity for all school ages at Nurseries, Junior Schools, Primary Schools and Secondary Schools, specialising in providing fun fitness sessions for children aged 18 Months to 11 years old.
As the national obesity problem reaches epidemic proportions, we are on a mission to stop it – starting with the next generation.
“I started Fitkids as I recognise that children have many distractions with modern technology steering them away from an active lifestyle. Fitkids can provide a service that helps children become more active, to have fun, learn routine, respect and become healthier” – Keith Atkinson
Fitkids sessions will be held by a member of Fitkids Staff who are fully qualified, fully insured, energetic, and also experienced in working with children.
Qualifications and Certifications include:
REPS/NASM Level 3 Trainer
Safeguarding and The Protection of Children Qualified
First Aid Trained
We actively promote healthy living and a fitness lifestyle mindset during the sessions we run. We encourage good behaviour, respect and overall performance, therefore one child from each session will be handed a medal as a reward.
Children will experience fun, active games and physical exercises that encourage fitness, flexibility, positive posture, motor skill development as well as social skills. We believe that fun and effective exercise, together with healthy eating has have a positive impact on children for their future.
