At the start of a child’s training journey, we endeavour to set a strong foundation for a healthy lifestyle. The Super Hero programme follows a progressive calisthenics form of exercise consisting of a variety of movements which exercise large muscle groups (gross motor patterns) such as running, grasping, pushing, pulling, hop, skip and jump.
These exercises will be performed rhythmically and with minimal equipment, as bodyweight exercises. The emphasis is to increase strength, fitness and flexibility while pulling, pushing, bending, jumping and swinging with a range of activities making it a fun and an exploratory experience.
These types of exercises can improve muscular strength, aerobic conditioning and improve psychomotor skills such as balance, agility, and co-ordination that can expand into many domains including the classroom and writing skills. Gill Connell & Cheryl McCarthy 2011
The Gladiator programme continues the journey of physical development and builds upon the complexity of the fundamental movement skills. These exercises will introduce external resistance techniques following the principle of progression:
With a solid foundation of learnt skills The Spartan programme further develops the child’s physical capabilities. Building on complex weight lifting techniques, the child will experience a variety of fun and challenging sessions.
This environment aims to evoke self-confidence, mental strength, robustness, work ethic and discipline.
