Many Benefits of Exercise for Children through Kiddy Kwon Classes

May 3, 2017

Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, children who are physically fit sleep better and are able to handle physical and emotional challenges, from running to catch a bus to studying for a test. 

 

Through regular attendance at Kiddy Kwon classes, students will receive these benefits, as well as learning responsibility, improving self confidence, social interaction and basic self defence awareness.

Kiddy Kwon classes are a combination of physical fitness and mentally stimulating games designed to improve a child's overall wellbeing.

 

Three Elements of Fitness Developed at Kiddy Kwon Classes

Active children normally develop three elements of fitness when they play, which are:

  • Endurance through running;

  • Strength through climbing; and  

  • Flexibility through reaching for high or low items.

Kiddy Kwon classes encourage children to do a variety of activities so they can work on all three elements of fitness.

 

Endurance develops when children regularly get aerobic activity. During aerobic exercise, the heart beats faster and a person breathes deeper. When done regularly, aerobic activity strengthens the heart and improves the body's ability to deliver oxygen.

 

Aerobic exercises in Kiddy Kwon classes are designed to be fun and include running drills, agility ladder transitions and low hurdle jumping.

 

Improving strength does not have to mean lifting weights. At Kiddy Kwon classes, children do push-ups, stomach crunches, pull-ups, and other exercises to help tone and strengthen muscles. These exercises are completed under close supervision from an instructor and the children are encouraged as they complete each exercise.

 

Stretching exercises help improve flexibility, allowing muscles and joints to bend and move easily through their full range of motion. Kiddy Kwon classes encourage students to improve their flexibility through basic stretching and reaching exercises, once the student has fully warmed up.

 

Children who are active will:

  • Have stronger muscles and bones;

  • Have a leaner body;

  • Be less likely to become overweight;

  • Decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes;

  • Lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels; and

  • Have a better outlook on life.

Kiddy Kwon classes are designed to be fun and engaging for the students as well as encouraging self confidence, improved balance, physical coordination and motor skills.
