Spartan Kids Are The Best Kids

I love motivating adults to get healthy and moving but motivating kids to love their bodies, burn some energy, and feel confident – that’s the best! I mean look at this teamwork, those smiles, and just positive involvement.

Kids need to move, they need to work as teammates, and we need to encourage them. They need to fail. Yes I said it. It’s okay to fail. Even as adults so many times we don’t try for fear we will fail. Kids need success and failure equally. They need to push themselves individually and communicate as a team. We focus on individual drills as well as team and partner drills. It’s great watching them work as large teams. As individuals. And as partners.

Most importantly we teach the kids, they only need their own bodies and about 5 feet of personal space. We show them five exercise they need to do a spartan, and to enjoy at home.
Push ups
Planks
Squats
Squat jumps
Which build…the burpee! If you have ever done a spartan you know these are penalties for failing an obstacle.

Fitness + Kids = My Happy Place! 110% it gets loud, it’s organized chaos, sometimes no one listens, and it looks like a fight could break out, ha, but for every time I wonder “oh no” there are five kids that run up to me and say they can’t wait to do a Spartan. With so many schools cutting their PE and Athletic Classes I feel lucky to volunteer my time and go into schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and programs and help kids learn about fitness and Spartan Races.
