The kids club this weekend was FUN. We not only had our little athletes learning new movements but we actually got the Mom's moving as well.
After warming up to "THE BEST" bunny hops to this day. Two feet AND in almost every square. It has been such a short time practicing these and its amazing how well Nathan, Harmony and Anna are doing with the agility ladder.
Balls slams were a new skill we learned today as well. GREAT JOB throwing 4.5-7.5lbs from over head!!
We then learn one of the more complicated olympic lifts for our young athletes, but I would say they did pretty good for their first day of deadlifts with a pvc pipe/bar. Are WOD was then deadlifts and burpees!
Then there came a really fun morning GAME with Mom's trying their hands at it to help demonstrate how its done. Object of today's GAME was to move the SMILE, made of a loaded bar for the eyes, tire for the nose and boxes for the smiling mouth and recreate it down the long black mat. It was a race against the clock to work as a team remembering how the pieces were broken done and then put back in the exact order.
Memory, team work, colors, numbers, speed and strength are just some of the skills we worked on today. WONDERFUL job to both our young athletes and our Moms!!
To end the weekend class was a short talk on nutrition. The young athletes tested out a fruit shake with almond milk.......well the expressions said it all as they handed their glasses to Mom. Next time I promised the fruit shakes would be made of milk instead of a very "nutty flavor" of almond milk. BUT the fruit was a hit and each athlete took home an apple or banana. Our goal is going to be to try and stay away from soda and too much candy. Because we want to be strong and HEALTHY!
