Keeping Your Child Physcially Fit

 According to Jeffery Gupi, the owner of a fitness gym in CT., in order for our children to reap the maximum benefit of exercise the routine should include three important stages.

1. The warm-up - the purpose of the warm-up is to prepare the body for physical activity and to prevent injury. This should last for at least five minutes. Some examples of warm-up exercises for children are; march in place, backward and forward arm circles, jumping jacks, wind mills, or jogging in place.

2. The main event - The main event is the focal point of the day's physical exercise. This activity should increase the heart rate and the major muscle groups should be used. Some examples of main event exercises are; jumping double dutch or jump rope, bike riding, swimming laps, skating, or jogging in place.

3. The cool down - The main purpose of the cool down is to gradually reduce the heart rate. The child should perform five minutes of the cool down activity. This could include doing stretches, and walking at a slow pace.

So, when you plan to have your child on an exercise program, try to include the three important stages to get optimal results. In order to "Get the Best Education Possible", your child must be physically fit.
