FitWall for Kids!!

4 Apr

So you know it was only going to be a matter of time before I got my children to try this new FitWall exercise program that I couldn’t stop raving about for the last couple of weeks.  If you didn’t get a chance to read that post, you can check it out here https://cleanandleanwithlisa.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/fitwall/ .   In addition to the 8 walls that are used for the adult classes, the studio features 4 “mini” walls specifically designed for children.  My kids were given the opportunity to try out these “mini” FitWalls this past weekend.

Julian and Isabella were given a private class last Saturday at the FitWall studio and they absolutely loved it!!!  The class was only 20 minutes long (the standard kids’ class runs 15 minutes in length) but boy did my two little munchkins work up a sweat!!!  It was fun watching them attempt all these different moves and master each and every one of them.  I thought for sure Isabella would have the upper hand given her dance background and flexibility but, I must admit, Julian definitely held his own.  Each exercise was repeated 5 times before they were given instruction on how to perform the next move.

The program also includes floor work which involved bean bag tosses to see who could get them all in their bucket fastest.  I knew my kids were competitive but WOW!!!  They completed two rounds.  Isabella won the first…Julian conquered the second.

We allowed them to have some play time after class and they really enjoyed knocking each other around with these life size blow-up thingies (sorry, I have no clue what they are called)!

They were all sweaty and soooo exhausted after we left that they actually both crashed for about an hour afterwards.  Julian was telling me that his arms felt like jelly and was still complaining about them 2 days later.  I told him that meant his muscles were getting bigger.  Wish I had captured a picture of his reaction.  Let’s just say he wants to know when he can go back!!

So proud of my babies and thank you to Stephanie and Chantelle for giving such great instruction on all the different exercises.   Thanks again FitWall for the opportunity.  We will be back…

Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day!
