Virtual Fit Kids
Virtual Fit Kids is an online fitness and wellness program that offers movement, motivation and physical education for school-aged children from grades 3 to 8.
It provides a healthy routine for kids after school so they can stay fit, form healthy habits, learn to control their minds and bodies through exercise and breath, and connect with others during this time when social interactions are limited for many, especially as the weather gets cooler.
Join us twice a week from home for a half-hour body break, which will consist of a warmup, fast-paced and ever-changing cardio and strength exercises, challenging and relaxing yoga poses, some breathing techniques and above all, fun with friends.
Coach Tanya has been a teacher with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) for a number of years, having obtained her Bachelor of Education degree with a specialization in Health and Physical Education from University of Ottawa in 2015. Virtual Fit Kids will help students positively develop their mental, emotional and physical wellness including building self-awareness, self-regulation, a sense of self esteem, and resilience. They will also learn about their bodies, including naming muscles, understanding the respiratory system and the mind-body connection.
Monthly memberships offer two online workouts each week. If you miss a live class, don’t worry. Recordings are sent to all members the same day so you can always do them at a later time at your convenience.
