It's Brett Klika and Craig Valency, Co-founders of SPIDERfit Kids!
With a combined 30 years of experience inspiring children to lifelong fitness, we founded SPIDERfit Kids to give fitness mentors just like you the information, activities, and confidence you need to impact the health of the kids in your community.
If you're like us, you remember a time when "play" didn't involve a smart phone, tablet, or gaming console.
When kids spent their free time using their imaginations during hours of active play, they developed crucial physical, social, and even cognitive skills.
But somehow, our kids have lost their way with active play!
According to recent data, only 20% of our kids get enough physical activity on a daily basis to keep them healthy for a lifetime.
Today we want to invite you to help kids engage their senses with creative exercise activities and circuits that are easy to implement and fun to do.
Together, we're going to....teach kids how to play again!
Now, by moving away from the more mainstream, regimented approach to youth physical activity, you can create movement adventures that make exercise seem like a real-life video game!
After years of working with all fitness levels of kids, we discovered that by giving them just enough guidance and letting their imaginations do the rest, we could get even previously inactive kids excited about exercise.
Not only that, but when kids had more freedom to exploremovement, they developed skills much quicker and had a great time doing it!
This approach was so effective and fun for kids, we developed an easy-to-follow program framework for fitness mentors around the world that combines childhood development research with active, imaginative, play-based exercise circuits and activities.
Play-Based "Exercise Adventures" Made Easy!
It's amazing how quickly kids learn when we let them!
Try the following ideas to create a fun and effective exercise circuit that engages the imagination while developing lifelong fitness skills:
Guided Discovery: The Movement Variables
We start with a familiar, simple, exercise activity or movement like a jumping jack, or a march
Add 1 or more challenges for effort, space covered, or relationships with objects or people.
Watch kids learn all the ways, speeds, shapes, and directions their bodies can move!
Creative Discovery: The Movement Sentences
We start with 1 or more direct action word, like "spin" or "jump," or even a made-up word.
Have the kids move in any way they feel is appropriate to demonstrate that word.
Start putting words together and instruct the kids to "link" the resulting movements into "sentences."
Add punctuation, emojis, and anything else you can think of to make their brains talk to their bodies!
"SPIDERfit Kids gives coaches the tools needed to appeal to the imaginations of children."

Today we want to give you this framework and much more with SPIDERfit Kids'...

"I'm teaching K-5 PE for the first time! Every day, I'm using what I'm gleaning from the SPIDERfit Kids training. The warm-up circuits were terrific at every grade level...and super simple to implement! The activities from both the Powerful Play course and 60 Ways to Play give me an endless toolbox of creative, fun, and effective ways to get kids moving! The kids’ favorite so far is the helicopter & airplane activity, complete with a “repair shop” if you were “damaged” by another aircraft!
If you work with kids, you need 60 Ways to Play!"
