Our 45-minute Kids class is based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity. Fortitude Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translate to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
Fortitude Kids makes fitness FUN! Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school varsity athlete differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. Our goals include allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
