Frequently Asked Questions
How fit do you need to be to join Junior Hero Academy?
You do not need to be fit at all; I make sure that every exercise is designed for all abilities to take part.
Are you a superhero yourself, Krish?
Although I would clearly make a brilliant superhero, I am a mere mortal, just like you - I know, it’s hard to believe!
Do I need to bring anything with me?
You’ll need your PE kit and some trainers or plimsoles and a bucket load of enthusiasm and determination. A bottle of water is vital as well.
How quickly should I expect to become superhero fit?
That depends entirely on you. I can give you a great workout plan that is easy to do and easy to follow but the rest is down to you. You need a healthy diet, an active life, plenty of sleep and a bit of sunshine.
Once a week is a start but it would make a huge difference if you were to do these exercises at home a couple more times a week or get out on your bike, go for long walks or use those monkey bars in the park! If you do that, you should see positive changes in a matter of weeks!
What kinds of exercise will we do at Junior Hero Academy?
We will start off with some warm-ups and dynamic stretches to raise your pulse and mobilise your joints. After that we will do simple circuit training where you move quickly from one body-weight exercise to another, designed to give you a full body workout without the need for weights or a gym. We will finish with some core stability exercises designed to improve your posture and agility and a gentle warm down with static stretches at the end.
What if I can’t do some of the exercises?
Don’t worry! I have a variety of ways to make each exercise easier so that you can build up in your own time at your own pace and also ways to make them more challenging for the super-fit!
What’s the point? Can’t I just carry on the way I am?
Of course you can but Junior Hero Academy has the power to change your life! The more active you are, the better you feel. The fitter you are, the easier everyday tasks become. The stronger you are, the more powerful you feel and all of these go towards building self esteem and developing a healthy attitude that will take you into adulthood ahead of the game!
