Children ages 5-18 should be taking part in at least 60 minutes ‘aerobic activity’ each day and the benefits of this are well documented; from improving overall health to helping with musculoskeletal and bone development, reducing the risk of diabetes and improving mental health and concentration.
Reaching this target might be easy for some but certainly not all – sports aren’t for everyone and particularly those who may already be struggling with fitness compared to their friends.
Why Pilates for children?
Exercise is an important part of a child’s development and it’s key to find an activity that they can enjoy. Pilates is suitable for everyone, whether it’s a keen sportsperson looking to try something new or those less enthused by traditional forms of exercise who want to find something that goes at their pace.
