Keep your child active this summer in a fun, new way! For 12 to 16-year-olds, Junior Ninja Warrior Training, based on the hit television show, is a great way to increase speed and endurance, improve balance with core training, generate explosive strength and more. Learn more below about the J’s new Junior Ninja Warrior Program and why keeping your child active now helps set the tone for the rest of his or her life.
Kids Face Hurdles to Stay Active
Anyone who has seen kids on a playground knows that most are naturally active and love to move around. But what might not be apparent is that climbing to the top of a slide or swinging from the monkey bars can help keep kids active for life. As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models and busy working families. And, even if kids have the time and the desire to be active, parents may not feel comfortable letting them freely roam the neighborhood as kids did generations ago. So their opportunities might be limited.
The J’s Junior Ninja Warrior Program Offers Kids a Safe Way to Be Active
In spite of these barriers, parents can instill a love of activity and help kids fit it into their everyday lives. The J’s Junior Ninja Warrior Program is designed for youth to be active in a fun and exciting environment with one of our nationally-certified personal trainers.
In our Junior Ninja Warrior Program, kids will focus on coordination/footwork, grip strength, speed, agility, balance, general strength/stamina, and mobility. We will use everything from agility ladders, monkey bars, TRX® Suspension Training, slam balls, body weight and a whole lot more!
Staying active and keeping fit are the goals, so help find an activity or activities that your child enjoys. Get your kids moving this summer and help them discover how much fun it is to work out with other like-minded Warriors like themselves.
