As kids and teenagers grow older, it’s important for them to take care of their bodies. The importance of maintaining youth fitness is something that we have stressed before. At the W Training Facility, we want to ensure that the future of our youth is a happy and healthy one. That’s why we offer Youth Fitness classes.
Our youth development classes are great for young athletes looking to have fun and learn about fitness training. Overall, the kids get the chance to improve their overall strength, conditioning, hand eye coordination, and flexibility. All of these attributes contribute to their development. If you want to get your young adult started on the right track, give them a few pointers.
Every Muscle Is Important
There is one mistake that most people make when they start training. Beginners tend to focus on one part of the body, neglecting crucial muscles that need attention. As your child begins their fitness journey, teach them to give every muscle it’s due diligence. Not only will certain muscles grow weak, but your child runs the risk of straining the ones they are working out. This can lead to injury and they will risk their muscles breaking and tearing.
Balance Is Key
A good habit that your child should pick up is balancing their workout. They should work on upper body exercises one day, and during another time, they should give the lower body some attention. In between, they should rest up. Knowing when to rest is essential to recovering energy and rebuilding muscles.
Know Your Limits
The allure of strength training is becoming bigger and stronger. While we understand this desire, your kids have to pace themselves. Working with super heavy weights will tax the body and cause harm. Instead, your teen should first learn the correct form for weight lifting. They should also lift 1/3 of the maximum weight that they can handle. This will give the muscles the training they need without putting more strain on the body than it can handle.
Develop a Routine
A good habit that your kids should develop is working out multiple days throughout the week. Staying consistent with training will help your kids keep up with their fitness goals. Our youth fitness classes take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This schedule helps your young athlete get into the habit or training regularly.
