The contrast of strength work with power and endurance meant you were working on your strengths and weaknesses all in one session. I used the Spartan sessions as part of my pre-season training and I definitely felt the benefits when it came to the season. Hard work but great fun all the same.” Rob O’Donnell – Worcester Premiership Player

Parent & Child Fitness Boot Camps
COMING SOON We have developed these Parent and Child Fitness Boot Camp classes as a way of bringing fitness to the whole family. Children look up to and follow in their parents footsteps in a lot of things in their life and fitness is no different. I personally can’t think of a better way to educate and inspire children to the benefits of exercise and healthy living. There have been many studies all over the world and the findings are always that children with active parents, who set a good example, have more active children.
There are hundreds of benefits to having active children but below are just a few of the proven ones:
- Increased alertness
- Improved sleep patterns
- Less risk of obesity
- More likely to keep active later in life (leads to even more health benefits as we get older)
- Better concentration in school
These Parent and Child Fitness Boot Camp classes will challenge the adults as well as the children. All of the classes will have similar format in that we will all warm up together, there will be some partner/family interaction games and then there will be a main session focusing on whole body exercises using body weight, each other, weights and various other pieces of equipment.
Expect each session to be fun, energising, informative and beneficial to all levels of fitness.
Hopefully by the end of the sessions parents and children will have achieved the following:
- Completed a great fitness workout
- Interacted together as a family
- Had lots of fun together
- Learned something that you take home and practise
- Embedded a little bit more in your child’s thought process about health and exercise
- Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our Parent and Child Fitness Boot Camps.
