Recommendations for Physical Activity
Children have unique needs for daily physical activity. Their growing bodies require a great deal of movement to develop properly, and the CDC has made some specific recommendations for how to ensure your child gets the most out of their daily exercise.
The CDC recommends at least 3 days per week should include muscle-strengthening activities within the 60 minutes of daily physical activity. Muscle-strengthening activities are things like resistance training and lifting weights. At Motus Ninjas, many of our activities include utilizing your own body weight for resistance training in order to build muscle strength.
A majority of the 60 minutes per day should be spent in either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity. For the best results, 3 days per week should include vigorous-intensity activity. Examples include aerobic dancing, running, swimming, jumping rope, and of course one of the most fun ways to meet the requirement for vigorous activity is through Motus Ninjas’s fun ninja warrior gym for kids in Lee's Summit!
Healthy bones are incredibly important to develop in your youth, as it can help prevent osteoporosis later in life. Children aged 6-17 should get 3 days per week of bone-strengthening activities during their active time. Bone-strengthening activities are sometimes called weight-bearing or weight-loading activity and produce a force on the bones to promote growth and strength. It sounds a little scarier than it is! Common examples of bone-strengthening activities include jumping jacks, running, brisk walking, and weight-lifting.
As you can see, many of these different types of physical activities play into each other. With the way we exercise in our Motus Ninjas kids fitness classes in Lee's Summit, it’s easy and fun for your child to get the activity they need in order to be healthy and strong!
