Fitness Friday


Kids Learning Thru Movement

Exercise every day is the best way, Make Friday your Monday and get the kids moving today. Mix up some of these online classes for the kids to try. We all like different types of coaching. You can also participate with your kids and have a chance to learn more about how they like to learn.

Yoga for kiddo’s and Self-Management

The best part about kids’ yoga is the opportunity for creativity and exploring goal setting through modification. Stretching and yoga is also perfect for helping children control impulses and explore self-motivation through short, unique physical activities. Modifying movements or strategies can help them work towards achieving new goals whether around time, repetition or stamina.

We found a few online classes with youtube:

Kids Exercise classes right at home and easy to follow cartoon kids. Short and sweet with many more variations available.

Jami with Cosmic Kids Yoga is loads of fun. Safari’s and critters and more. Your kids are guaranteed to remember these stretches. How about a little yoga with Frozen the princess.

Circuit Style Walking for Self- Awareness 

Providing space for children to try new moves and activities, allows them to discover personal strengths and areas of growth. Creative fitness supports children in developing self-confidence to branch out and participate in new activities. Build on different activities as they move from station to station to increase the difficulty and pose new challenges.

Get outside and create a little circuit walking. Hop Scotch or jump rope in your driveway. Move on to Walking fun after 1 minute into side steps, booty kicks, front high kicks, standing hula hoop hip swings, and high knee marches. Practice counting out loud, backward, and in two’s. See who can add jumping jacks and bunny hops. For kiddo’s movement is fun so get your groove on.

Even though we are still being careful and sticking close to home, there are great activities a family can do. Who remembers the hokey pokey?

I gotta say, I went for a bike ride yesterday and I was proud of all the kids riding with Mom and Dad. Great Job! and Happy Every Kid Healthy Week, We did it!
