We use grade level as rule of thumb on where a kid should start. However, many factors come into play when it comes to exercising. Physical and mental maturity are all factors when it comes to working out as well as a desire on the part of the participant and parents. Due to the nature and risk of exercise and general physical activity, it is important that participants are not only capable but willing to take instruction. We ask that the parents also be supportive and discuss expectations with participants at home.
We start the process by doing a consultation with the parent and child.
