Junior Hero Academy

This is my first blog for Junior Hero Academy and it's just for you kids!

Being fit and healthy is all about feeling good about yourself, feeling strong and in control and being able to lead your life the best way your body will allow.

At Junior Hero Academy, we focus on four areas of health and fitness.  Cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, balance and nutrition.

We improve cardiovascular fitness through a combination of different cardio exercises - it's similar exercise to running around in the playground, riding your bike, swimming - anything that raises your pulse and makes you a bit hot and sweaty.

We improve your muscular strength through a variety of resistance exercises.  These are body-weight and very light free-weight exercises, similar to crossing the monkey bars or climbing up the climbing frame, walking up and down stairs - anything that uses your muscles and joints.

We improve your balance with different core strengthening exercises.  your core muscles run around your abdomen and are responsible for helping you stand up and sit down, for holding your internal organs in place and for protecting your spine.  A good, strong core is vital for everyday functionality, stability and balance.

Underpinning your physical fitness is healthy nutrition.  Your body requires nourishing food to help it function at its best.  All children learn about healthy food choices right from nursery age and so very little of what we talk about will be news to you.

I hope that you stay tuned, I'm going to be posting loads of fitness tips and exercise routines that you can do at home or in the park.

See you soon,
