The year so far - Fit For Kids Co Melbourne

As 2019 kicks on, we wanted to take a look at some of the action that has already taken place in February this year! We have held clinics, seen old faces return, seen new faces taking up new sports and most importantly a whole lot of activity! We are thrilled to be able to keep the kids active again in 2019 and cant wait to see what incredible results come from the year. Enjoy.

 

 

This Girl Can Campaign - Vic Health

This Girl Can is a fantastic initiative being run through VicHealth. The campaign is designed to get more girls participating in sport more often. The program works with stake holders and organisations to promote physical activity for females no matter what age, skill level or ability. We think anything that gets girls playing more sport is a wonderful thing. Check out the promo video for the initiative below:

Forehand Contact Point - Tennis Tips

Controlling the contact point of your forehand ground stroke.

When you watch the great champions of the game you will note that a contact point (where the ball hits the strings) is always out in front of the body with the strings facing the direction the player wishes to direct the ball. So whilst grips and backswings will vary, an out in front contact point is a consistent marker of a great forehand groundstroke. Take a look below at just a few great examples of this in action!

30 minutes per day. That's what we all need to be getting!

When it comes to health and exercise we all know that we could be doing more. But how much exercise should we all be getting?

According to the experts at the Australian Institute of Sport, 30 minutes per day is the optimal amount of time that we should be exercising per day. The campign they have launched to discuss this is the Find Your 30 campaign. The campaign looks at ways that individuals can try to find there 30 minutes in fun and interesting ways. From walking an extra block to work or simply taking the stairs instead of the elevator.  At home they suggest simple things such as washing your car, playing with the kids in the backyard, walking the block or even gardening in the yard. There are so many ways that we can all get more active, and the obvious other ways are through sport and fitness. Sport competitions, training, lessons, coaching are all great ways to get out and not just get active but also get social with the people around you.

For us, looking at ways to get children more active, we believe that the message needs to come from the top...their parents. By showing your children how easy it is to get active and to demonstrate it first hand, your children will naturally follow your lead and will emulate the habits you have throughout their life, hopefully right through into adulthood. We also believe that getting children involved in local sport carries the same benifits for them as it does for us adults. It keeps them fit, its social and its great for encouraging a positive mental outlook on life.

Below are a few of the AIS videos that show just how easy it is for all of us to get our 30 today!
