ATTN: Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we will still be offering in-home training for kids and teens. However you may be more comfortable with a virtual in-home personal training session which we can provide as well.
Have you ever thought about kids personal training for your children?
Some parents immediately dismiss the idea as unnecessary, however with the rates of childhood obesity climbing steadily in Canada is it really such a silly idea?
Why Kids Personal Training Makes Sense In Today’s Society
We all know that our kids are getting less and less active, and this combined with the junk foods that they love to eat, presents a significant health threat to our children.
Statistics from the American Obesity Association show that 15% of children in the States aged 6 to 18 are obese and a further 30% are overweight. Canada is not far behind America with 1 in 3 children being categorized as overweight or obese.
Lord Sebastian Coe, the 2012 Olympics organizer, referred to this generation as “the least active generation in history!” (source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2606375/The-children-young-nine-personal-trainers-Parents-resorting-forking-200-month-kids-active.html)
In today’s society children spend more time than ever sitting in front of the TV, playing computer games or messing about on their smartphones. Compare this to just a few decades ago when children spent the majority of their time playing outside, running and being active, and it is no wonder that there is a threat to the health of our children today.
Some Reasons Why Your Child May Benefit From Kids Personal Training
Children gain confidence in themselves and a sense of achievement as they see their fitness levels improve. If your child does have any puppy fat, which they subsequently lose through personal training, the chances of them being teased or bullied by other children is reduced.
Overweight children are more likely to become overweight and obese adults. This increases their risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers. Not to mention the impact it can have on their self esteem. This in turn can have a negative effect on everything from their romantic life to their career. It doesn’t give them the best start in life!
Regular exercise boosts serotonin. This in turn improves mood and can even help your children to concentrate at school.
By far the most important benefit with kids personal training though, apart from increased fitness, is that it’s fun and your children can enjoy it! The Trainer will motivate them and praise them as they do well. It can be a very rewarding and character building experience.
Kids Personal Training Can Present A Convenient Solution To Busy Parents

In fact you can use that hour when they are with the Trainer to catch up on some chores, run some errands or even have a spot of ‘me time’!
