Get Your Kids Off The Computer & Back in Shape With Fun-Filled Kid's Classes on The Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York

Most kids don’t get enough exercise. While parents do their best to keep their kids active, it's actually a lot harder than they think. Physical education programs are being cut in schools across America, economic conditions force parents to work longer hours, and the selection of extracurricular activities for kids is overwhelming. Most young children don’t get the recommended amount of physical exercise, but The Little Gym of The Upper East Side has the kid’s gymnastics, 

karate, cheerleading, and other classes to change that.

First, let’s take a look at the stats. Unfortunately, they’re rather bleak. According to a YMCA of the USA survey of more than 1,600 American parents, 74% of children between the ages of five and ten do not get the recommended daily exercise. There are countless reasons for this lack of exercise, among them is the fact that 53% of parents say they spend free time with their kids playing video games or sitting at the computer—which is often what kids want to do most. But what many people don’t know is that the American Heart Association recommends 60 minutes of fun, moderately intense and varied physical activities a day for children over the age of two. So how can some of that time spent in front of the computer be replaced with a variety of age-appropriate fun exercise?

The Little Gym of The Upper East Side turns sedentary young ones into healthy, active children with the healthy habits and skills they need to stay fit for life. The playspace has flexible kid’s classes tailored to age-specific groups. Their theme based curriculum means your child will never get bored, and they’ll always have the chance to enjoy exercising. Find the balance of health and fitness for your child at The Little Gym of The Upper East Side. To learn more or enroll your child for karate, gymnastics, cheerleading, and other fun programs, visit the kid’s gym online and call 212-787-1124 today.
