Youth Fitness

Obesity rates for young people have tripled since 1980 and doubled just in the last decade alone. We believe that by making fitness fun we can teach kids that exercise is important and doesn't have to be a chore. Premier Fitness Systems is dedicated to combating the childhood obesity epidemic and improving the health and fitness of our youth.

Our goals for the youth fitness program are to enhance each young person’s physical and athletic development, improve their self-confidence, and encourage an active lifestyle. The program is great for those involved in golf, hockey, soccer, baseball, softball, lacrosse, and other sports. In addition to helping improve their overall athletic performance the training also helps with injury prevention.We focus on fundamental movement skills: running, jumping, throwing, climbing, crawling, pushing, and pulling.  With the younger age group the primary tool for the student will be their own body weight. Additional tools such as jump-rope, climbing ropes, power wheel, jump boxes, jungle gyms, medicine balls, chin-up bars, and dip bars will be used

Long-term health benefits of exercise are:
•    A stronger immune system! The body’s ability to fight disease is improved. Children are less prone to colds, allergies, and diseases, including cancer.
•    A reduction of type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity and improving carbohydrate metabolism.
•    A lower blood pressure and an improvement of the child’s cholesterol profile.
•    A strengthening of the entire cardiovascular system, including the heart and lungs. The heart develops a higher “pump-activity” while the child’s heart and lungs are strengthened, supporting the prevention of heart disease.
•    Children are less likely to become overweight and will have better control of their body fat. Overweight children are able to reduce their body weight and body fat due to the physiological effect of burning fat while exercising.
•    Children develop stronger bone structure and muscle structure.

Active children enjoy additional health benefits, because:
•    Exercise increases the blood flow to all body tissues, including the brain. Greater blood flow transports more oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells.
•    Active children improve their body’s ability to absorb oxygen through aerobic exercise. Due to the increased oxygen in their body’s cells they feel more energized. More oxygen translates into more energy!
•    Increased blood flow promotes the body’s transportation of the by products of metabolism and toxins back from the cells for elimination, recycling, or further use elsewhere. Children who exercise feel fitter and more energized because of their body’s ability to detoxify.
•    Active children breathe better and sweat more. Breathing and sweating are great ways to detoxify the body and help it keep itself “clean.”
•    Children increase their over-all fitness through exercise

Exercise Improves Mental Health
•    Exercise enhances the brain’s metabolism. Studies show that active children have improved memory as a result of better brain function!
•    Moderate, fun-oriented exercise literally burns off excess harmful hormones and, at the same time, increases the release of beneficial ones. One of the beneficial hormones acts as neurotransmitter for establishing new memories.
•    Active children have the ability to concentrate much better, even at the end of a long school day.
•    Studies report that exercise decreases anxiety, reduces depression, and improves mood and outlook in children. In addition, their quality of sleep is improved.
