When we think of exercise, many of us automatically think of our own exercise regimes. We think of heading to the gym, meeting up with a personal trainer, and attending different classes, but adults aren’t the only ones who need to exercise - kids need to exercise too!

Now, some of us let kids’ exercise slip past our day to day thoughts because we assume our little ones are getting enough exercise from just running about and playing. But when you consider the average child should get sixty minutes of exercise on a daily basis, you might want to start incorporating set exercises into their routines to ensure they’re hitting these targets.

We’re not saying you need to get your little ones jogging, doing push-ups, or squatting. Instead, they will likely better benefit from team sports and other fun activities. As the infographic from below shows, many kids will enjoy trying out track and field, lacrosse, or gymnastics. These fun sports will give them something to look forward to each week, as well as keeping them fit and healthy.

So, make sure your little ones are getting sufficient exercise, regardless of what background you may have. Youth sports participation is extremely important for every child. It keeps them in shape, staves off chances of obesity, and can also give them a fun hobby and a way of making new friends.
