This pandemic has sadly taken our kids away from experiences that fill their cup with joy: playing games with friends, enjoying physical activities at school, attending sports events. With the continuous order to stay at home, children have been spending more time on their screens than ever before. 
Make good use of that constant desire to be online by encouraging them to consume content that gets them up and moving. Here are some fitness and workout classes to keep your young ones occupied while having fun and reaping the many benefits of exercise.

Learning how to play football is possible even when kids are stuck at home. Aspire Football Academy’s Football Training offers a fun way to learn one of the world’s most popular sports. With a holistic approach, kids aren’t just taught how to play, they also learn valuable life lessons. The online program features live reaction drills that can improve hand-eye coordination and motor skills, as well as virtual interactions with other kids so they can learn from each other.
Is kickboxing good for kids? You’ll find out the many benefits of this martial art when you enroll your little one to the Kids Kickboxing class by Origins Athletics. Here, your child will learn various striking styles from different disciplines including Muay Thai, Western Kickboxing, and Karate. Not only will it make them physically fit, it will also teach them discipline and give them confidence for whatever comes their way. Kids are grouped into two, between age groups of 3-6 years old and 7-12 years old.

Yoga is beneficial for both the body and the mind—and yes, even kids can benefit from it. Your little bean will experience a sense of focus and calmness by practicing it, not to mention its many positive effects on the physical aspect. The yoga classes are designed for kids aged 6 to 10, with a maximum of 5 students only per session.
Children love to play, so they will surely enjoy Fitness Bee’s online class as it features games and interactive activities. It is designed to help children get fit and active through play and exploration. There will be exercise drills, functional movements, strength training, and even fun workout challenges! All sessions are facilitated by an occupational therapist coach and can cater to kids up to 6 years old.
One-on-one classes are more beneficial for a child who needs a more hands-on and focused training. If you want a more personalized football training for your child, consider getting a session with Futbol Fanatics. They offer private classes with a personal trainer. It’s also perfect for kids and parents looking for a more convenient class, because you can choose a schedule and venue that works best for you. Equipment and curriculum are also provided by Futbol Fanatics.
