Do you have a child who is more into video games than sports? One who would rather watch tv than ride a bike?
You would think as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor I would have children who are always on the go. Unfortunately, I, like many parents, have to pry the video game controllers and other electronic devices away and firmly push them outdoors.
And when it comes to sports, my husband and I generally make the executive decision to enroll them in various programs. Basketball has been a positive experience, but baseball, well… not so much!
This all got me thinking that if I am struggling to keep my non-athletic kiddos active, other parents are probably struggling too. Let’s face it, not all children are drawn to team sports which is generally a great way to keep them active.
Starting November 18th I am going to offer a six week KitFit program at CustomFit. The class is designed for boys and girls ages 9 – 13 and will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 – 5:15pm at 218 E. St Charles in Lombard.
The class will be a combination of fun activities to get children interested in staying active and equip them with things that they can do at home to stay healthy.
