Fitlife Kids Academy

The Fitlife gym in Haddenham believe that it's very important for children and young adults to be active. As the physical body is developing, being active is essential.

As part of this philosophy, Fitlife is launching the FitLife Academy for ages 3-7 on Saturday 30th April

From a young age, their staff encourage children to play sports, which is a fantastic skill to learn at such a young age. Sadly, very few continue sports later in life, but the need to remain active never fades.

On top of this, Fitlife staff believe that improving movement skills will directly improve the sport in which you do play.

The Fitlife Academy has been developed for the following primary reasons:

To teach children and young adults how to lead a healthy lifestyle that will stay with them for the rest of their life.
To use fundamental movement skills to unlock athletic potential.

Fitlife staff believe that to create a well rounded athlete, youngsters should not specialise in one specific sport until the age of 14+.

Fitlife Academy sessions are offered from pre-school age to 15 years old, with age specific movement skills in each session.

The primary focus for every session is for the child/young adult to have fun — enjoyment is the key to long term healthy habits.

The sessions are:
