Christmas is one of the hardest times of the year to stay healthy and with the kids breaking up for the festive holidays in a couple of weeks; keeping them entertained is important. With childhood obesity being one on the biggest health problems and on the rise, ensuring that children remain active during Christmas and any school holiday is crucial in combating this problem.
More and more families and organisations are hiring kids’ fitness instructors to not only help keep them fit and healthy, but to give them an understanding of why being healthy is important. It can be more challenging to engage with children and get them to participate in exercise classes, but with the right skill set, this shouldn’t be a problem.
