Prioritising children’s health and wellbeing

With many digital distractions out there, physical activity often takes a back seat – so prioritising children’s health and wellbeing has become more crucial than ever. Providing engaging avenues for children to embrace a healthier lifestyle through fun-filled fitness classes is something we’re very proud of here at Life Leisure. Let us tell you why…

Why kids’ health matters

Children’s health isn’t just about physical wellbeing; it encompasses mental and emotional aspects as well. Regular physical activity not only strengthens muscles and bones but also supports cognitive development and emotional resilience. Encouraging healthy habits from a young age sets the stage for a lifetime of wellness.

Our approach to kids’ health and wellbeing

At Life Leisure, the focus extends beyond traditional fitness routines. Our diverse kids timetable includes sports activities, family sessions and unique classes, helping to make exercise an enjoyable part of a child’s routine. From disco sports to junior football skills to family table tennis, there’s something for every child to explore and find joy in.

Whether your child is an aspiring dancer, a football enthusiast, or just enjoys the gym environment, there’s a class that fits their preferences. Children have the freedom to explore different activities and find what resonates best with them. You can view our full kids timetable here: https://www.lifeleisure.net/kids-activities/

Benefits of enrolling children in classes or sports

Physical health: Kids classes at Life Leisure are designed to get children moving, improving cardiovascular health, motor skills, and flexibility.

Mental wellbeing: Regular exercise has been linked to enhanced mood and reduced stress levels in children, fostering better mental health.

Social interaction: These classes and sessions provide an excellent opportunity for children to interact, make friends, and learn the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.

Healthy habits formation: By participating in activities like these, children develop a positive attitude towards staying active, laying the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.

Getting involved

Enrolling your child onto our kids’ programme is simple and convenient. Simply pop into your local Life Leisure hub and chat to a member of the reception team who would be happy to help. Just remember to bring some age ID for your child.

Let’s not forget the good old-fashioned ways of encouraging children to get active. There are an abundance of parks and outdoor play areas for children to enjoy, and these free activities will provide many of the same benefits as our classes. It’s important to remember that we are all different and we all enjoy exercising in different ways. Explore some options and find the best for you and your children.

Prioritising children’s health and wellbeing is an investment in their future. Together, let’s pave the way for a happier, healthier future generation.
