In today’s society children spend more time than ever sitting in front of the TV, playing computer games or messing about on their smartphones. Compare this to just a few decades ago when children spent the majority of their time playing outside, running and being active, and it is no wonder that there is a threat to the health of our children today. Although most schools offer compulsory sport, your child may be more comfortable doing exercise in a less pressured and competitive environment.Kids Personal Training
How your Child can Benefit from Personal Training
Often kids can be awkward and feel embarrassed or self-conscious when exercising among groups of other children. This is especially true if your child is overweight. They may make excuses to get out of exercising at school. With a Personal Trainer the Trainer works with your child, or children, individually. Your children get full attention and the workout can be tailored especially to suit your child’s needs.
Learning to make exercise a part of your routine from a young age can only be beneficial in the long run. Children who exercise regularly will gain an appreciation for the things they can achieve with their body.
Overweight children are more likely to become overweight and obese adults. This increases their risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers. Not to mention the impact it can have on their self-esteem. Having a personal trainer will increase their body image through teaching kids early on that a healthy body is key when it comes to a happy and energized life style.
