With the current pandemic, children have limited opportunities to be physically active, and this can cause mental stress at home. Providing safe and enjoyable online programs to children who are facing stresses and have less connections with their friends can be both physically and mentally beneficial for them.
Children require at least 30 minutes of movement per day to achieve optimal physical and mental growth. “Balance Academy Online Exercise for Kids: Core & Coordination Training” is an exercise program that combines a variety of movements using household items (towels, socks, balls, etc.) within a limited space. Also, Balance Academy incorporates elements of Rhythmic Gymnastics (dance movements, acrobatics, calisthenics, etc.) into its online programs for kids, based on the founder, Erika’s, extensive years of training in the sport. This helps to build a strong foundation of exercises that not only leads to physical benefits but also cognitive development.
Erika says, “I launched this online fitness program for kids because I wanted to help kids through the stresses of confinement in a safe and fun way, to build their mental fortitude while ensuring they get enough physical activity despite the Covid-19 restrictions. Even children who are not good at exercise can easily follow the movements of our “Balance Academy Online Exercise for Kids: Core & Coordination Training” program. It’s a great way for anyone to learn the joys of being physically active.”
