Tumbling for Kids (3-5)
At Fusion we want to provide your child with a strong foundation of development. By building a strong foundation of body & mind, your student will learn to have strength, balance & coordination in a fun safe environment.
Fun first! Kids learn best through play. That's why we believe in "edutainment". Your child will learn the most when he or she is having fun. Our energetic instructors love working with kids and every class includes gymnastics drills and skills to ensure that your child is engaged every moment. Of course to have fun, safety must be #1. That's why we encourage a low student to instructor ratio, appropriate partner pairing and only the best, safety mats and training equipment. We take our commitment to creating a safe and inspiring learning environment even further, which is why our instructors use POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT when giving correction. Not only does it make learning more enjoyable, but it's simply more effective. You won't find barking drill sergeants or ego-driven coaches here.
This co-ed class focuses on teaching your child how to progress through activity stations. A 10-minute interactive warm-up focuses on stretching and reviewing basic body positions using parachutes, jump ropes, balls and hoops. Students will roll, jump, kick, hop and go upside down on the floor; walk, jump and kick on the beam and swing, roll, support their weight and go backwards on the bars. All of the skills learned in this class are progressions for greater skills, which will prepare your child for advancement to the next level.
Many children are spending less time exercising and more time in front of the TV, computer, or video-game console. And today's busy families have fewer free moments to prepare nutritious, home-cooked meals. From fast food to electronics, quick and easy is the reality for many people in the new millennium. Add to this the number of school districts that have reduced funding for sports and PE programs to meet budget constraints and it's no surprise that 1 out of 3 kids are now considered overweight or obese.
We take our mission to combat obesity seriously. Our engaging and dynamic classes get children excited about moving their bodies and develop a life-long joy for sports and exercise. Furthermore, our instructors teach your child the discipline to make the right choices for their health, even when it's not easy. Physiologically, the beauty of martial arts lies in the simple fact that every technique builds balance, agility and core muscle strength making it an ideal foundational exercise activity for anyone. Martial Arts is all about "bilateral movement," a fancy term fitness specialists use to describe the difference between sport-specific motions like swinging a baseball bat or kicking a soccer ball and those of martial arts which emphasize ambidextrous development of the body.
We believe nothing is more vital than establishing proper eating and exercise
habits early in life. We also know that ultimately helping kids lead healthy
lifestyles begins with parents who lead by example. Preventing kids from
becoming overweight means adapting the way your family eats and exercises,
and how you spend time together. Could your example use some help? Our
Fusion Fit Classes will help you get in fighting shape. We also offer family
classes every day of the week so if you haven't yet considered training with
your child be sure to check out our fantastic family programs.
We welcome you to participate in our 7 week course. This allows your child to experience classes before you make an enrollment decision. To ensure a smooth transition to our group classes, the first lesson will be a private (free!), one-on-one lesson with a certified instructor where we will set goals for your child's training and introduce him or her to the basic techniques used in the group classes. Upon completion your child will be ready to participate in a regular class. Click here to get started!
