Fitness for the Whole Family

Activities for High Energy Kids

Kids benefit physically and mentally from exercise, just like adults do. The key is to get them engaged in fun activities that they'll look forward to (they don't have to know it's good for them)!

In addition to improved coordination and cooperation, don't be surprised if your kids seem more calm and focused after engaging in high-energy activities like these:

  • Obstacles R US - kids race through age-appropriate courses
  • Kids in Motion - lots of heart-healthy movement for all ages
  • X Games - kids' favorites games, from crab soccer to noodle hockey...with a twist!

Scroll down to the Kids Activity Schedule to find a session at your favorite gym.

Yoga for Kids

Kids who practice yoga or gymnastics will enjoy developing strength, coordination and balance early in life. This is one kids' fitness activity that can continue to pay off throughout their lives, as they start to play sports or turn to yoga for stress relief. 

Several of our Sacramento gyms with yoga offer Family Yoga classes for you and your child to attend together -- check the Yoga Schedule to find one near you!

  • Kids Yoga - a calming, relaxed class setting where your child will learn yoga poses
  • Family Yoga - for kids ages 3 and up to explore with a parent or guardian
