By April 17, 2020 Fitness No Comments

We’ve put together a series of videos to help kids stay fit. They can easily do these routines and exercises at home, indoors or outdoors, with no need for any specialist equipment. And parents are most definitely encouraged to join in!!!

Part 1 – Let’s get warmed up

Coach Matt and Emma take us through how to warm up properly and why it’s so important. Combining jogging and sprinting on the spot with air punches, floor work, press-ups, burpees, and star jumps, this routine is aimed at kids aged 4-12. That said, it’s a solid warm-up for anyone – just keep doing it until you feel that glow!!

Part 2 – Foot drills & shadow boxing

Coach Craig and young Charlie go through some simple foot drills that will really help you stay sharp. We always say our base and our feet are one of the most important parts of boxing – and the movements are just great for keeping fit. In this video, Craig shows Charlie some straight-forward shadow boxing routines, some front and back foot positioning, as well as how your back foot can extend your reach by a few inches!! This routine is aimed at kids aged 4-12, but is good for anyone who wants to keep fit.

Part 3 – Pad training

Coach Paul and Harrison take us through some pad training routines. If you don’t have pads at home, you can easily incorporate these moves into a shadow boxing workout. This drill is aimed at kids aged 4-12, but is a great basic routine for anyone interested in staying in shape. Paul talks us through trunk movements, faints, with routines that will really help cement what we learned in Craig’s earlier video about foot drills https://youtu.be/Pt75GYhkRP4

Part 4 – Circuit training

Circuit training is key part of any fitness regime. In this video Coach Matt goes through a great routine aimed at kids aged 4-12, that can easily be done indoors or out in the yard or garden and requires no equipment. Matt’s routine includes press-ups, sit-ups, planks, floor work, mountain climbs, crunches, star jumps, burpees, and much more. This a great workout to get that cardio pumping and work all the body.
