QuickFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of QuickFit, it is entirely and absolutely geared toward kids fitness and their specific developmental needs.
QuickFit Kids is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young individuals and the primary P.E. program for many schools. It can be used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life long love of working out and keeping fit, thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity. Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing and keeping everything varied. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit. Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist.
The QuickFit Kids program is scaled for all young people making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for 7 year olds and teen athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
QuickFit Kids program is a multifaceted, challenging, socially interactive strength and conditioning program for kids from ages 7 to 16. Our Little Athletes program serves children ages 7-11 and our Teens program serves children ages 12-16. As children are becoming more and more sedentary and with childhood obesity rising at an alarming rate, there is a growing need to incorporate health and fitness into the lives of our kids. By laying a solid foundation of fitness ideals from an early age, we can reduce risk of disease, injury, and build a better future for our young ones. Since QuickFit Kids is a generalist program, our kids program follows a similar philosophy. We cover the broad skills and movements essential for life and athletics. Improvements in the gym translate directly to better performance on the sports field as well as the playground. We strive to make our kids program fun.
Every session includes a warm-up, focus work on a basic athletic movement and/or gymnastics skill, a short Workout of the Day, and games. As with the adult program, we find the universal scalability equally applicable to our younger population. Classes are structured to give the athlete’s progressive training in gymnastics, mobility and strength training as well as an increase in self-esteem and confidence, as well as nutritional guidance. Below are our two programs:
This class lays the foundation for all future movements that our young athletes will encounter, whether it be sport-specific or fitness related. Athletes learn body awareness, coordination, and the fundamentals of gymnastics and strength training including forward/backward rolls, headstands, fun animal movements, different squatting/pressing/deadlifting modalities, push-ups and sit-ups, and more. A sense of personal accomplishment is encouraged, as well as positive group interaction.
Geared towards older kids, the Teen Program classes focus on developing teenagers’ athletic ability and building the skills, strength, endurance, speed, flexibility, agility and confidence needed to excel in any sport. The Teen classes are also great for those kids who many not think of themselves as athletic, but who still want to participate in activities that allow them to be active, physical and part of a welcoming group of peers. Many of our “non-athletic” teens have actually discovered their own athletic abilities through QuickFit Kids. The Teens Program concentrates on honing skill-based movements as well as proper technique in the weight room. We also focus on building life skills including showing respect for self as well as other, making healthy choices, and academics. Research shows that kids are able to focus better on their studies directly after exercise.
Our QuickFit Kids coaches also offer private coaching to kids of all ages. The coaching is structured to give the athlete’s progressive training in gymnastics and strength training. The coach will work with you and your child to develop a program geared toward general fitness, proper movement, and/or complex skills that translate directly to sport. Private coaching is recommended if your child been sedentary for a long period of time, has significant health limitations, or would thrive in an environment with additional attention and accountability. Pricing for private coaching varies. If you are interested in one-on-one coaching for your child, please contact us.
