Today’s kids spend more than five hours a day in front of a screen… the TV, Laptop, Mobile Phone or the latest new must-have in digital gaming technology. This means that the time they spend being physically active is becoming more and more limited.
Not only are overweight kids prone to taunts in the playground, they’re also at a higher risk of developing health issues. Active kids sleep better, eat better, have stronger bones, and tend to feel generally better about themselves.
As a Kids Fitness Instructor, you’ll be fully equipped with the tools needed to coach and motivate children of all ages from 5-16 years. You’ll acquire the skills and knowledge needed to plan, teach and evaluate a range of activities for children whilst gaining a full understanding of the challenges you’ll no doubt face teaching groups of young people unsupervised.
This course is highly recommended for health and fitness professionals who’d like to work within child-friendly leisure centres, after school clubs or non-teaching assistants who want to help promote fitness to children.
