“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it,” according to an old proverb. This old adage remains true to this day, because what a child learns as a youngster affects him or her for the rest of his or her life.
In order to help children live a healthy life, it’s important to train them to develop healthy habits. For instance, you wouldn’t want to feed your child nothing but sugary snacks everyday, right? They’d reach for candy bars, soda pop and potato chips the rest of their lives while ignoring vegetables, fruits and other natural, healthy foods and drinks.
Just like you’d want your child to eat foods to help them grow up to be strong, smart and healthy, you should also care about the amount of physical activity they get when they’re in their formative years. Too many kids today spend all their time sitting in front of screens watching things rather than getting up on their feet, moving their body, and living life like it was meant to be lived.
Fit-EST cares about children’s health and seeks to train them to have a passion for fitness. Not all kids are going to be athletes, but all kids can benefit from gym workouts. You see, with the help of proper guidance and supervision, children can be challenged to push their limits in a constructive way. Workouts require work, but typically in a fun way, such that exercise becomes a good habit that kids can and will enjoy well into old age.
With fitness training at a young age, children learn about endurance, balance, coordination, strength and agility. Working out also builds a person’s confidence– at any age.
Fit-EST offers one-on-one training sessions for children. That way, each child receives specific instructions on what to do and how to do it in order to maximize their time in the gym at a comfortable level for where they’re at in their development.
