HOW IT WORKS
Sessions are aimed at 3-5 years olds and their parent or guardian to promote physical activity and leading a healthier lifestyle overall. Within session there will be opportunities for development of fine and gross motor skills, stimulating imagination, encouraging social interaction, challenging the cv system and major muscle groups, educating but overall being FUN! Parents/ guardians are expected to supervise their budding athletes throughout the entire session and join in on the fun, embracing their inner child and learning a few activities to be used at home!

Each session is themed and based around a specific environment with characters the children can relate to. A variety of equipment will be used again to stimulate children's imaginations and encourage turn-taking, sharing and leadership as well as providing learning opportunities to explore colours, counting and communicating in different ways e.g moving the room like a proud lion.

Parents will have opportunity to take part in the learning process as well as being active in assisting children throughout each activity. What better way to bond with your child than to learn new ways in which to stay physically active and have fun with the kids ?!

here is how it should work, give them a ball send them outside, done! (oh and let the back in later)

Why only targeting 3-5 year olds, we hear so much about children are getting bigger I have two teenage children who would love to do more exercise like the gym or classes but everything costs money and not everyone has the funds available so why aren't the government, local council or NHS doing more to target all ages

I think it's about £15 pcm for youths to join and there is no contract so you aren't stuck with the bill of they get bored and don't go back. They can do as many classes as they like or use the gym so works out really cheap compared to paying per class at some places

​So your saying you have no money to send your kids to the gym? Give them a football and point them in the direction of a local park?

I hate all this bs about kids being overweight and nothing being done about it. The problem is parents buy their bloody kids I pads and xboxs and then are surprised why their kids are fat after sitting in every night for hours on end doing nothing.

When I was a kid I used to play out every night.

I too used to be out all the time with my mates running around and on our bikes etc. however being a parent now (not sure if you have kids yourself) I couldn't imagine letting my daughters out doing everything I did, would worry me to death!

I don't think it's fair to blame it all on electronic devices, some people may just prefer having their children safe where they can see them. I personally believe the issue with overweight kids is the food being provided to them....you are what you eat after all!

That being said there's nothing stopping people from having a day out as a family in the park, walking or even biking - no cost involved other than time!

Heat for this deal, but for those looking for free exercise options look for your local parkrun which are open to anyone aged 4+. There are 5k parkruns on Saturday mornings, although under 11s must run with an adult. Junior parkruns are 2k on Sunday mornings for 4-14 years old and they don't need to run with an adult. Google it and register it in advance. You even get freebies after a certain number of runs.

Gym for kids.. Honeybooboo comes to mind.

​I do have kids yeah and I agree I wouldn't want them running around in the dark on their own. That being said, that doesn't mean kids need to be sat plonked on the sofa every night with a tablet in hand "keeping them safe".

Nothing stopping then doing other things to keep active.

This is supposed to be at Southend Xercise4less but they never have an instructor...so frustrating
