Today, my daughter Carol and I worked together to kick some butt. Well, sorta. We were invited to attend a special session at UFC Gym Perimeter, to try out their new kids program. She was elated by the experience. Not only did we get to peruse through the equipment before class began, but she also got to test out a pair of boxing gloves and a super-cool tech-y punching bag.
At UFC Gym, boys and girls learn self-defense, self-confidence and discipline while having fun in a safe and entertaining group class format. It’s also a great way for them to burn energy and have fun! Taught by a staff of rockstar, attentive professionals, UFC Gym Perimeter kids classes help your little one learn self-confidence, coordination, discipline and self-defense. Plus, it’s fun!
The class began with the kids warming up for 15 minutes, using fun stretching and cardio races to hold the interest of the wide age range of the kids attending. The highlight for Carol, of course, was the whole class getting in to “The Cage” for more fun and games (and excerise, but don’t tell her that part!), including planks, squats, and fun-and-friendly boxing moves. The class concluded with a cool down stretch and a game. Seriously, Carol. had. a. blast. In the week since, every time we drive in that direction, she asks if we’re going to “the fun gym” so she can “play games again”.
What I liked most about UFC Gym Perimeter is that, while she was taking the kids’ class, I could workout at the same time, if I wanted. The gym comes equipped with all standard gym apparatus, such as treadmills and elipticals, weight-lifting equipment (I”m not even going to try to come up with the specific names, yo), free weights, and plenty of punching bags to go around.
Kids classes are Tuesdays & Thursdays @ 4:15, or Saturday @ 11 a.m.
