RunFit Kidz Fitness Program Starts Sept 24!
The RunFit Kidz program returns to Compass this fall! RunFit Kidz is a fun, non-competitive co-ed program for mixed age students (2nd grade and older) of all fitness levels. The program starts Wednesday, September 24 at 9:40 am. RunFit Kidz is a great way for homeschoolers to get some exercise before settling into other studies for the day!
The program includes:
- Introduction to fitness and running
- Supportive group environment
- Proper mechanics of running, pacing
- Personal goal-setting
- Dynamic warm-ups
- Strength training
- Running technique activities and drills
- Games and relays
- Cool-down stretching
- Incentive tokens for incremental distances
- Weekly health topics with a nutrition tip-of-the-day
- Featured body system or muscle group each week
The class will gather indoors, but exercise and running will take place outdoors, on the grounds and paths of the wooded UUCF campus. The program is designed to help emerging runners build incremental endurance over 8 weeks, and the group’s accomplishments are celebrated with a 5K (3 mile) celebration fun run/walk. Fall quarter runners will be invited to join other RunFit Kidz students from around northern Virginia for a 5K fun run on Sunday, November 16. Parents who wish to try running or improve their own fitness may register themselves for this class.
This is an 8-week program offered at Compass for 2nd graders through adults. The class meets on Wednesdays in Oakton from 9:40 am – 10:55 am starting September 14. Register online!
