It is extremely important that children from a young age are introduced to exercise, whether it’s from a walk outdoors with the family or playing a sport down your local park. It is easier for them to continue with this lifestyle as they get older, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case.
Judy Murray, tennis fitness coach and mother to Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is pleading with the government to give children P.E. homework to help boost their fitness knowledge and levels. A recent report from UKactive shows that there is a decline in children’s fitness ability and we’re all fully aware that child obesity is increasing. The Murray campaign is advising parents to take an interest and monitor their children’s fitness capability, but there are other ways in which kids can become active and enjoy it at the same time.
