Tuesday the 29th of November. Usual session start time 4pm with a 5pm finish. It gives us great pleasure to wish everyone a happy festive season ahead. And what kind of festive season would it be without our very own Christmas end of bash?
“Goal setting may provide busy parents with the additional impetus needed to prioritise their child’s physical activity above other competing demands,” the study’s authors say. In the family context, goal setting means deciding how often to participate in structured and unstructured physical activities, using a calendar to schedule and chart progress, and rewarding the family when goals are achieved. Also important for success is that parents be good role models, which means showing, not just telling. Setting individual exercise goals and realising them can motivate kids to do the same. Success is catching, so when one person in the family becomes more active, it often leads to others doing the same. While some goals can be collective, there’s plenty of room for individual goals as well.
Our children’s fitness program combines gymnastics, body weight calisthenics and weightlifting. Elements that encourage bone density development cross body movements and exercises that involve the vestibular system are also incorporated.
“CrossFit’s been awesome for him, it’s like night and day in his lap times, his ability to handle the machine, his confidence. It’s just been incredible. It’s almost unbelievable what we’ve seen from him.”
"CrossFit allows you to perform better under pressure, and to step up and be a leader in times of physiological stress. If you’re in better condition, you’re gonna be able to step up and say, hey man, I can do it and still think clearly. It’s really being able to think well when you’re tired, and think well when you’re under pressure. That’s going to get you somewhere."
