Importance of Suspension Fitness for Children

It is between the ages of 12-14 years that the bones of children begin to harden making it increasingly difficult to reverse the effects of spinal problems. In addition, children are being subjected to unnaturally prolonged periods of sitting in poorly designed desks at school as well as needing to carry back packs filled with heavy books on their shoulders. This can result in subluxation of the cervical and thoracic spine as well as pronation of the shoulders eventually resulting in headaches, joint pain, suppressed energy and poor mental function.

By moving the body in a variety of ways through space in a supported manner, children will begin to intuitively understand of the importance of their center of gravity. This self awareness leads to improved motor skills, coordination and sensory integration resulting in poise, self esteem and confidence. In addition, regular inverting provides the brain with important nutrients thereby improving mental functions as well as elevating moods. Through stretching and strengthening movements that enhance spinal mobility, suspension play can potentially reduce indications of spinal conditions such as vertebral subluxation or scoliosis and will help to correct many of the problems associated with bad posture.'s a lot of fun too! Recommended for children ages 8- 14 years. Dates: Tuesdays 4:15-5:30 pm January 22nd - February 26th Cost: 6 weeks - $115 + tx Drop In - $25 + tx
