More and more children today have a personal trainer by their side in order to get them active. Parents feel that their kid’s P.E. lessons in school aren’t enough to keep the youngsters fit and healthy, and are willing to pay up to £200 for a professional trainer. The demand for a fitness instructor who specialises in working with children is higher than ever and Focus Training has a personal training course for this specific area.
Whereas most children today would wake up on a Saturday morning eating breakfast in their PJ’s whilst watching TV, there are some who are working up a sweat such as 12 year old Hannah Whiterow. So far, Hannah has completed mini-circuits that include push-ups, squats, knee-lifts, lunges and TRX exercises, and by the end of it, she is exhausted and sweaty; but that’s a good sign! We all know that getting children out of bed is a task, especially on a weekend, but with a personal trainer knocking on their bedroom door, we’re sure they’ll be out like a shot!
Lord Sebastian Coe, the 2012 London Olympics organiser recently stated that children of today are “the least active generation in history.” He is pushing for ‘breakfast fitness clubs’ so children can start the day properly with exercise, so it will be interesting to see if the government and schools are in favour of this proposal. But whilst parents want something to be done now in order to help get their children active, it will be you that they will seek professional advice from; once you have your fitness qualifications.
If you want to be part of helping today’s generation of children to get more active, then book onto our Kids Fitness Instructor personal training course today.
