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 kid’s 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 reduces the risk of injury.
