Physical Fitness Resources for Kids

Many kids already know about staying healthy by eating good foods, but did you know that physical fitness is another way to stay in shape and ward off illnesses? I know what you’re thinking. What exactly counts as physical fitness? Physical fitness includes any activities you do that increase your heartbeat and breathing rate, works out your muscles, and burns some amount of energy in the process.

Kidnetic.com

We like this site because it has the same message as we are trying to get across. They have good information on moving, eating and learning.  Some fun, interactive games for kids too but lets keep that to a minimum ;-) because we want to get kids moving first.  Parents will love this site.


Canada Public Health Agency

There are some very good links on this page plus you can find Canada Physical Activity Guides for Children and Youth. Very informative and highly recommended.


National Institute For Play

We love this site.  Again this is what we are all about.  We want to get kids moving and playing.  Play is fun.  Kids want to have fun.  Adults want to have fun.  Lets all have more fun by playing and moving together.  Their site talks about Play + Science=Transformation. We could not agree more.

 

The Exuberant Animal

OK.  This is a very interesting word.  What does it mean?  I will let you figure that out. The site however is awesome.  Based out of Seattle, Washington these guys have a mission to get people active and moving using games and play.  Sound familiar?  They have a health philosophy that promotes performance, vitality and physical happiness.

Coaching School.org

I really love this site.  If you have ever coached kids in sports or if you ever embark on that journey you must visit this website.  There is just so much free information on youth sports, youth fitness, coaching kids and more. There are great videos and you can even join coaching classes and become a certified coach.
