Motivating Kids

When teaching kids, finding ways to motivate them can be very challenging especially when you have such a diverse group of youngsters.  Positive reinforcement works best, but there are times when the kids just don't seem to care.  Giving them free time if they behave well & finish their conditioning early (but still done well),  play a game at the end of practice, or even a special treat for getting new skills.  Of course, they all want to compete well and learn their routines and new skills, but sometimes they all need that extra push.

What other tactics do you use on motivating gymnasts?

Olympics on the Horizon

With the Olympics on the horizon, little kids everywhere are about to ask their moms and dads to join their local gymnastics gym.  This will be a great time for kids to discover a sport that could shape their young lives.  Kids will build friendships, gain self-esteem, and self-confidence just by being in the gym as little as one hour a week. 

London 2012 is quickly approaching and the Opening ceremony is in only 5 and a half months.  The gymnastics portion starts July 28th and go through August 7th.  Gymnastics is one of the most watched sports in the Olympics and usually the most talked about.  IGM Gymnastics will be here blogging about it throughout the Olympic Games.

We cannot wait for it to get started!

Keeping Kids Fit at Home

Getting kids to be active and get healthy is tough - especially in the winter. IGM encourages kids to be active for 60 minutes a day.
Here are some at home activities that are also F-U-N!
  • Turn on the music
    • Turn on your kids favorite music and start dancing.  This is a great workout for kids and adults.  You and your kids will have a blast while staying fit.
  • Hula Hooping Fun
    • Hula Hoop, Jump Rope, Hop on 1 foot...Fun contests to have that will keep them moving.
  • Chores!
    • Helping out around the house could mean vacuuming, dusting, picking up toys, or cleaning the windows.  Doing a few of these can count as being active!!
  • Excersizing Video Games
    • These can be GREAT workouts for kids and adults.  They will keep them moving, get their heart rate up, and they will be having too much fun to realize what a great workout they are getting.  

Getting into IGM for Open Gym or one of our many gymnastics classes is another awesome and fun way to keep kids healthy.
