I must admit I am a huge fan of star jumps – they work your shoulders, legs, Back and of course your heart. There is nothing better than getting your heart rate up for boosting your metabolism and burning fat.
To perform the Star jumps safely;
- Start with feet together and hands by your side
- Now jump both feet out to the side and raise your arms out to the side until your hands are just above shoulder height
- Finally return your feet together and hands to your side
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 for 60 seconds!
- Try to move your arms and legs in time
- Make sure your hands are raised above shoulder level
- There are huge benefits when performed correctly
Children get enough exercise just being children, surely? Well, sadly no they don’t. Childhood obesity is on the rise and many children do not achieve the minimum recommendation of 60 minutes of moderate physical activity per day every day.
As an adult, we all know about the risks of being inactive (increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, overweight, diabetes ) and these risks may seem so far away for our children. But physical activity in children is about building good foundations which will reduce the chances of these issues ever occurring and making exercise a habit that will see our children through the rest of their happy and hopefully health lives. It’s up to us to get our children moving and make it fun – so sign up today!

Easy! Here are a few reasons for you:
- Exercise causes the brain to release chemicals called endorphins, which naturally make us feel happy and healthy.
- Children with active lifestyles tend to excel in sports.
- Physically active kids tend to be academically motivated, alert, and successful.
- Healthy children have high self-esteem.
