Exercise - Education - Fun
Club-V Max is a fee-based fitness experience for children, which aims to introduce children to exercise in a fun way with a focus on the premise that it ‘feels good to exercise’.
Children today are definitely not as active as they used to be - school playing fields are either non-existent or very small; most schools offer limited Physical Education or nothing at all, and parents use their cars to drop their children off wherever they need to be. The lack of physical exercise as a result of the above is on the increase and it is therefore, more than likely that our younger generation will be less active.
What are the benefits of children participating in exercise?
- The reinforcement of healthy habits from a young age – these children aremore likely to continue an active lifestyle into adulthood.
- Helps to reduce calorie intake and plays an important role in addressing the problem of obesity.
- The risks of coronary heart disease, osteoporosis and degenerative
diseases are reduced.
What is Club-V Max?
- Club-V Max is a dedicated area within the club geared at the children market – based on the concept of a ‘Club within a Club’ and consisting of various zones/nodes, totally designed with children in mind.
- The Club-V Max product caters for children from 6wks to 13yrs old; specific age groups are grouped together: under 3’s (from 6 weeks), 3 – 6 year olds, 7 – 11 year olds, and 12 – 13 year olds.
- Careful thought has gone into the activities Club-V Max offers – the programme includes fun group fitness activities for children that are studio and pool based.
Club-V Max offers basic arts and crafts, and even technology is taken care of by integrating this into the fitness activity offering and providing interactive PlayStation games where possible.
