By teaching them programs like Tasty Tuesdays where they learn how to make healthy snacks, and given attainable goals to reach in fitness they improve their self esteem, social, cognitive, emotional and physical skills. With proper training, each child can learn control, discipline, responsibility, self respect, goal setting, leadership, teamwork and most importantly howe to love themselves. In a supportive atmosphere, children thrive in love and positive input. Classes can be 45 minutes to 1 hour long or 30 minute sessions with a personal trainer. Private training and group classes help the child learn ways to properly work out and develop fitness goals for themselves. See Fit Kids Obesity Program.
