Fun Ways to Get My Child in Better Shape
If your child is complaining about exercise, the Ninja Warrior model is a perfect solution to “disguise” exercise. Instead, kids tumble, climb, and swing. They jump in foam pits. They climb huge nets. It’s kind of superhero stuff, here.
We have both Little Ninjas Obstacle Course and Ninja Classes for Kids. Most importantly, we teach them skills that they can use to sustain their fitness throughout their lives and we introduce physical activity as fun instead of a chore or task they need to complete. Our obstacle course for kids provides engaging ways to get them in better shape, while also improving balance and coordination.
How Do Ninja Gyms Help with Balance & Coordination?
Ninja gyms, and any type of obstacle course fitness training, help children with unilateral coordination, and bilateral coordination. Unilateral coordination is the ability to use muscles on one side of the body at one time, which can help prevent injuries that may result from discrepancies between your dominant side and the weaker side of your body. Bilateral coordination is the ability to move both sides of your body at the same time in a balanced, controlled way.
Both create body awareness and the ability to process muscle and joint signals. Unilateral and bilateral condition, together, improve balance, dexterity, and promotes better control of body movement.
Obstacle courses are designed to create abdominal strength. A strong core helps improve balance. Read about Adam, a young man with autism who has made amazing progress in fitness, improved strength, and better balance.
Another benefit to Ninja Warrior gyms is that they promote self-confidence and self-determination.
