Castle Hill Fitness has a number of personal trainers that can provide exercise programs that are geared specifically towards a younger client. The importance of youth fitness cannot be overemphasized. Our fitness coaches can provide programs that will improve coordination, body awareness, strength, and endurance while having fun in a supportive environment.
THE BENEFITS OF STARTING YOUNG
Whether it's schools cutting back on physical education or because more neighborhoods offer limited options for safe play - kids today are facing challenges to staying physically fit. Research indicates that children that are engaged in healthy exercise are more likely to continue to be active as adults and yet only an estimated 51.6% of high schoolers go to physical education classes.
PHYSICAL FITNESS AT A YOUNG AGE:
- Promotes positive mental health and can reduce the risk of suicide
- Builds bone density
- Prolongs cognitive decline
- Decrease the chances of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY & ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
Studies show that when children engage in regular exercise it helps improve concentration, memory, and classroom behavior. Students who are physically active also tend to have better grades and school attendance.
