Perhaps most importantly, physical activity develops children’s self-esteem and confidence. Their ability to overcome challenging situations improves and they simply enjoy a better, sunnier outlook on life. In addition, our adolescent children can develop further social skills such as leadership and empathy. -Uta Pippig, Take the Magic Step
Do you remember playing outside until the street lamps came on? Kick the Can, Capture the Flag, Tag, using your imagination to run rampant through other peoples yards, climbing trees and coming back home exhausted… The days of easy exercise for kids is diminishing with unsafe streets, tiny new trees that cannot withstand the weight of a kid, poor diets that lead to low energy, and of course, technology that is taking the place of imagination. Consider getting those kiddos active in a safe ‘gym’ environment to help teach them how to exercise correctly as well as the benefits of being active.
Here are 2 important reasons why your kids should be working out:
- Teaches valuable social skills in a group setting
- Expends energy for improved concentration
- Improves brain function and the ability to create memories
- Provides calm energy for mental clarity
- Increases cardiovascular health
- Creates strong bones and muscles
- Strengthens their immune system
- Reduces risk of obesity and related diseases
