Making a Positive Impact
Introducing Kidokinetics, the fun way to fitness that’s inspiring kids to get up, get moving and get in shape! Kidokinetics is an all around sports fitness program for children of various ages.
Our young participants develop coordination, self-confidence and, perhaps most important of all, a lifelong love of physical fitness.
. . . But to our young participants, it’s all just fun and games!
Our programs are designed to meet the needs of all youngsters. Unlike typical sports programs, Kidokinetics is structured to promote a fun and non-competitive atmosphere.
Our experienced coaches keep the focus on fun, encouraging active involvement from each child. Through their play, the children develop important building blocks for life: discipline, confidence, coordination, fine and gross motor skills, and fitness.
