Fort Collins Fitness Festival
When we think about exercise, we mostly imagine working out in the gym, running on a treadmill, lifting weights or using one of the many beautiful trails here in Fort Collins for a run or a hike up Horsetooth.
But for kids, exercise means playing and being physically active. We are so incredibly lucky to live in a community with a multitude of events and opportunities to show our kids that fitness can be fun. This year, at the Fort Collins Fitness Festival, children’s fitness will be featured with the Kids Fit Zone where they can explore different activities and even partake in the Fort Collins Circus Center.
Circus arts such as dance, Acroyoga and aerial acrobatics can be valuable, noncompetitive activities. These activities cultivate intellectual, physio-spatial and kinetic awareness with psychological benefits of self-worth, self-confidence and self-motivation. By participating in such activities, students develop abilities in self-expression, collaboration and musicality—all while building strong bones and muscles and improving cardiovascular health.
Six Tips For Raising Fit Kids
- Help your kids do a variety of age-appropriate activities.
- Set a regular schedule for physical activity.
- Make being active a part of daily life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Embrace a healthier lifestyle yourself, so you’ll be a positive role model for your family.
- Be active together as a family.
- Keep it fun, so your kids will come back for more.
