It’s so easy to focus on equipment for yourselves, but what about the kids?
Having an in-home gym in a small space can be done if you get creative. On one side of the room I have my barbells, medicine ball and bands and on the other side, my children have their very own setup!!
Benefits of having certain children’s exercise equipment
- They can be taught how to properly work out specific muscles
- Promotes overall daily health and wellness
- Regular Coordination development
It’s not necessary to have any equipment for your child. It’s always easier to send them outside, but if you have the ability, owning just a few pieces of equipment can help your child develop great habits and learn a little more about their body and how it works in the process.

Strength training workouts for kids, when done correctly, offers many benefits to young children and adolescents. Like yoga, strength training has become another one of my favorite non-competitive activities for my children to complete.
Strength training can add:
- Increased muscle strength and endurance.
- Sports performance improvement.
- Better cardiorespiratory function.
- Helps to protect the child’s muscles and joints from injury associated with other activities.
- Stronger bones.
Like adults, the importance of developing early healthy habits can not be overemphasized. The most important aspect of any youth fitness and sports program is improved attitude regarding physical fitness. When starting early, strength training workouts for kids can help improve their outlook on youth sports activities and can help improve their own self-confidence when completing physical activities.

If you are a parent it’s no secret sometimes children can be a little hyper. We all become restless and it’s perfectly acceptable to take some time and get your ‘wiggles’ out if necessary. So what are the benefits of kids yoga? Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improve.
Yoga helps create awareness in the body through deep breathing and movement. It gives kids a way to express themselves, build a strong connection between what they hear and what they do. Children that have healthy body awareness are more confident and strong, have better posture, breathe better and have a sense of quiet strength.
