School Programs:

The Bestfitcoach Health uses creative, integrative approaches to physical activity. By designing classes that incorporate games, group activities and a number of resistance training options, that can help develop an appreciation for fitness among children and teenagers they will carry into adulthood.

Physical activity can be broken down into three categories:

1. Locomotor skills: Running, jumping, hopping and skipping

2. Object-control skills: Catching, throwing, kicking and bouncing

3. Stability skills: Balancing, twisting, rotation and landing

Naturally, kids develop these skills and movement patterns by the age of 6 or 7, but the level of competency varies on an individual basis. Not all kids are born with the same motor control or coordinative abilities. Some kids are naturally athletic, while others struggle with simple activities.

Building Athletic performance in youth:

How often do we hear that our sports heroes first picked up the Cricket bat or Football at the tender age of three? The trend of sports specificity among children has increased as youth sports have gotten more competitive. Unfortunately, this leads to a lack in overall athletic development in our youth athletes.

Youth athletes can be better served with an emphasis on overall long-term athletic development (LTAD). how to build effective training programs that incorporate components important for LTAD in youth athletes.

We will help You will learn fun, innovative ways to build skill development, functional speed and agility into sessions for your youth athletes so you can enhance their overall athleticism.

In every class there are two types of kids: those with low motor competency and those with high motor competency. Who do you suspect will want to participate more often? Who will be more aggressive and eager to learn? Who would rather sit and watch? Who would rather hide behind the bleachers? You guessed it!

Knowing that the level of physical ability is directly related to participation and confidence makes it even more important to encourage kids of all fitness levels to engage in these ABCs of physical activity.

Fitness professionals must pay closer attention to the kids with lower motor competency in class because they are more prone to shy away from activities and participate less often than kids with high motor competency. Encouraging kids with low motor competency is critical to keeping them engaged and helping them improve over time.

Our Primary Goal is to lead children into a lifelong pattern of physical activity and avoid a downward spiral of inactivity, which is often followed by obesity and disease. Keep activities fun, easy and encouraging for all levels of ability during these young and critical years of childhood. This will benefit both low and high motor competency children and increase the likelihood they will stay active throughout adulthood.
