The FitKidz Programme is a popular progressive 8-week fitness course. Every week a different skill is introduced giving children the opportunity to engage in a wide range of disciplines such as ‘yoga’ and ‘kick-boxing’ after which they progress, accomplish and then advance to new skills and areas they may have never considered trying. The programme provides a huge range of ‘holistic’ exercises which every kid needs to foster in their everyday life which all have the same aim: provide a safe place for children to learn how to be confident, strong and resilient.

A huge part of the programme is developed around weekly accomplishment badges and rewards which help keep kids motivated through ‘rewards’ of achievement. The badges further explain the class / module completed. Another important aspect of The FitKidz Programme is ‘creativity’ and exploration of kids ‘performance’ through exercise. This is achieved through synced music motivation through-out the hour. Classes are fun, highly charged and have the super fun factor in which children leave the class energised and ready to face anything!
The FitKidz programme is a perfect foundation to children’s development and gives kids the opportunity to explore ‘everything’ before choosing their own favourite ‘discipline’ and training.
