GRAB THE KIDS & GET MOVING

By |July 26th, 2016|Kids & Teens Fitness|

“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.

"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."

There's a ton of things we used to do as kids, kids now aren't doing. There are adults that have never been upside down because they never did it as a child. Our main goal is to get kids to learn at an early age that exercise can be fun, we play a ton of games, and along the way it helps their brains develop.
