I am going to start working with a 4th grader for the first time. And need help from experienced trainers with that age group. She’s not all that wild about the idea, so it has to be fun. I have all the typical toys: ropes, ladders, balls, sandbags/bells, etc. I have 30 years experience as a trainer, so don’t need basic trainer advice. just need a format and some tips to keep it moving. about her: she is on a swim team and takes hip-hop at the dance studio. Her mother is concerned about her weight and would like her to be influenced by the idea of exercise being fun.
Sounds like this is all coming from the mom
It’s really too bad that she is making weight an issue for her daughter.
Perhaps you could recommend s nutritionist/RD to talk with them about food choices as this is the real reason people are overweight.
Making a child exercise will sometimes make them hate to exercise.
