Sports played with spheres are easier to master than rectangular sports, such as Rubik's cubing and throwing bricks into windows. Circle fun with today's Groupon: for $60, you get five kids’ sports classes at Lionheart Fitness Kids' two Jacksonville locations, as well as in Fleming Island and Ponte Vedra (a $125 value). This Groupon is valid for kids ages 3–7 in any combination of the following classes:
- Track and field
Lionheart Fitness Kids instills little ones with self-confidence and social skills behind a fun façade of sports drills and games led by an encouraging staff of coaches. Non-competitive classes corral similarly aged kiddies in one-hour weekend classes that introduce them to the pastime of their choice (call for schedule and availability). T-ball lessons brandish basics such as diamond running, base hitting, and ritualistic-catcher's-masks crafting, and accompanying plyometric exercises boost agility, flexibility, and strength. Juveniles geared toward the gridiron can delve into elementary defensive strategy and timing, and fellow foot fielders fine-tune soccer skills such as dribbling, passing, and accuracy. Track-and-field lessons round out Lionheart’s curriculum, taking children on a leg-strengthening journey without the hassle of transforming them all into centaurs.
Along with five weekends of sports sessions, Lionheart Fitness Kids champions its participants with tangible encouragement. Cool beverages help steamy students simmer down after classes, and weekly sticker rewards motivate youngsters for the next week’s classes or make mildly intimidating eye patches. A final awards ceremony caps each five-week series of classes to honor each mini athlete’s dedication and course completion with a medal.
Though Lionheart Fitness Kids sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
