Safe for Kids – The Fitwize 4 Kids Fitness and Nutrition program is medically recognized as an effective health program for kids and is supported by a staff Medical Advisor and Director of Nutrition.
Research over the past 10 to 15 years has shown that with proper adult supervision, strength training is a safe and effective method of conditioning for children (sources: Center for Disease Control, American Pediatrics Association).
Fitwize 4 Kids Lifestyle Fitness Centers provide specially designed fitness equipment that is made for kids bodies. Each piece allows for multi-joint, closed kinetic chain movements.
Research shows that these types of movements reduce the likelihood of damage to developing bone growth plates. The movements also maximize compression forces that increase bone density in adolescents and pre-adolescents.
When combined with our low-weight, high repetition resistance program, this equipment allows growing kids to safely build lean muscle mass and reduce the risk of injury.
- Increased muscle strength & endurance.
- Increased bone density.
- Increased ligament and tendon strength.
- Decreased risk from sports and activity related injuries.
- Improved sports performance.
- Promotes healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
- Boosts metabolism.
- Decreased body fat composition.
- Improved self-esteem.

How much exercise a day do children need?
Guidelines from the Department of Health and Human Services say that children and adolescents age 6 and older need at least an hour a day of physical activity. Most of the hour should be either moderate or vigorous aerobic activity. In addition, children should participate in muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening activities at least three days a week.
Many classic activities — such as playing on playground equipment and jumping rope — cover all the bases at once. Organized sports are a great way to stay fit too. But team sports or dance classes aren’t the only options.
