Big Kids Outdoor Classes Available For Summer 2021

Those Runner Kids is proud to announce the expansion to include BIG KID outdoor classes this summer in Medford, New Jersey.

Starting the second week of August through the final week that leads into the first week of September, this mini summer season includes four weekly classes. Summer classes are held at Freedom Park at the multi-purpose field behind the playground.

BIG KIDS classes are 45-minutes, and follow the same structure of the toddler classes. This includes stretching, a dynamic warm up, and lots of games and activities that work on gross motor skills, general muscle strengthening, agility, speed, and endurance. The activities are appropriately progresses for kids in this class, best for ages 6-10.

The end of each class is dedicated to playing through the obstacle course. Obstacles change each week and help to work on core strength, balance, cardiovascular fitness, and general muscle strengthening.

All games and activities are presented as PLAY. While the kids love to race each other during relays and other sprints, this program is all about having FUN. Those Runner Kids does help develop athletic and fitness skills, but the core belief is that children are introduced to exercise in a fun and exciting way.

Class ends with a stretch and cool down.

Those Runner Kids is created by Coach Lauren, RRCA, ACE-CPT, ACE Youth Fitness Specialist. Coach Lauren also has fun summer-themed games and a FOAM PARTY planned for summer classes!

There will be one rain date for August classes. Date and time TBD.
