Kids spend an average of 5 hours watching television per day - that equates to 900 hours of tube time per year. Decreased outdoor play, a void where school P.E. programs used to exist and a strong emphasis on competitive youth sports have resulted in physical activity exclusion, rising rates of childhood obesity and de-conditioned children with increased disease risks with life expectancies lower than today’s adults! Children need physical activity to build strength, coordination and confidence and to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. Children should be given opportunities to participate in a variety of activities that match their personality, ability, age, and interests. When adults think of exercise, images of weights, treadmills and sports activities come to mind. But for kids, exercise means play. Most kids will not mind a daily dose of fitness as long as it’s fun! Enter the JumpSport® Fitness Trampoline™ with the Handlebar (JFTH). Trampolines are enjoyable and entertaining, and kids will bounce for several minutes to hours at a time without fatigue or injury. Simple yet effective techniques are easy to impart on kids motivated by the fun of jumping for fitness. Come and understand fitness programming for children 2 to 12 years, how to appropriately progress activity and methods in which the JFTH and PlyoFit™ can be used safely and successfully. This module will help fitness professionals understand children’s various physical activity needs and levels based on age and maturity.
