With rising rates in childhood obesity, physical activity for every child is of paramount importance. Kidokinetics is the fun way to fitness that’s inspiring kids to get up, get moving and get in shape! Kidokinetics is an exciting and unique program developed to promote sports and fitness to boys and girls.
After her third child was born, fitness professional Kim Goodman knew she needed a new way to stay fit. She eventually found the inspiration she hoped for right under her nose: her baby. With a little experimenting, she created a workout regimen that allowed her to bond with her baby while burning calories. Many of the exercises are built around simple things most new mothers have on hand, like their own body, stability balls, and, yes, a baby.
And so Mommycise Fitness came to be, with classes designed for expectant mothers and those with children ages 6 weeks to 3 years. Her 60-minute regimen combines fat-burning intervals, strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and stretching. Mothers and children get to enjoy close contact during class while doing mutually safe exercises, designed with the post-natal body in mind. Kim warns moms to dress to exercise?the class summons up a good sweat?and to bring any baby gear they need with them. Mommycise Fitness provides all the other necessary pieces of workout equipment, including yoga mats and light weights.
When opening back in January 2010, Blue Sol Yoga began it's courses with original instructor and now studio director, Natalie DeRosa. With over 11 years dedicated to her practice, honing her technique and teaching classes herself, Natalie brings experience and positivity to the studio. Now joined by a staff of instructors, she leads students of varying skill levels, abilities, and interests through an eclectic schedule of sessions that, like a treadmill-powered Jeopardy board, exercises minds and bodies. The versatile practice space accommodates a variety of yoga styles, including hot yoga, which takes advantage of magma-filled heating ducts to raise the studio space up to a sweat-inducing 100 degrees. Blue Sol Yoga's mirror-lined practice room also hosts occasional workshops, special events, and chakra cotillions in order to broaden students' yogic horizons.
Growing up in his native Brazil, Rodrigo Ramos started studying the arts of karate and judo at an age when most kids were still struggling with multiplication tables. A martial arts practitioner since the age of 9, Ramos brought his love of combat with him when his family moved to the United States. He brought his Brazilian heritage, too, eventually becoming a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian jiujitsu. Now, as the owner and chief instructor at American Top Team, he shares his knowledge with the next generation of martial arts masters. In this spacious facility, he and his staff train students of all ages in disciplines ranging from kids martial arts to MMA and Brazilian jiujitsu. They also oversee more fitness-based training, helping students get in shape through CrossFit and kickboxing.
