Fun ways for children to stay fit

27 March 2015

Our team here at Gardenatics know kids don’t really want to spend all day playing computer games or slumped in front of the TV, and, if they have a brilliant climbing frame fitted in the garden, it’s an easy matter to head out and enjoy fun, while building fitness levels and strength any time of day or night.

Our top of the range climbing frames feature a whole range of options which are designed to be great fun to use, but will also help kids maintain an athletic body and encourage interest in keeping active.

Ways to Get Fit on a Climbing Frame

Kids should be encouraged to use their climbing frame as a home gym to build stamina, strength and fitness.

The following climbing frame activities are an ideal starter:

  • a ladder or cargo net are great when used for daily fitness challenge sessions. Kids can be encouraged to climb them five/ten/fifteen times and will soon build muscles in legs and arms/shoulders
  • use a stopwatch to time daily climbs and encourage quicker speeds over time
  • climbing poles and ramps are great for building overall agility and a rope bridge helps increase balancing abilitiesWOODEN CLIMBING FRAME BRIDGE GARDENATICS ESSEX SAFFRON WALDEN LONDON
  • climbing walls are a real test of overall strength and agility and once kids have mastered the wall on their climbing frame they will be ready for the challenges presented by garden trees or local rock faces
  • if you have a trampoline as part of the garden play area, get your children to spend longer periods of time practising bouncing and jumping. Check out this example on the page here. of a cool way to integrate one into your garden online and encourage your child to build some stretches into the bounce routine, for a whole body workout. Somersaults will soon be easy and a matter of routine!

One of the best ways to enjoy getting fit on a climbing frame is while having fun with friends or family. Encourage kids to invent their own games of climbing frame tag or Pirates or just spend time in the fresh air enjoying climbing frame activities with mates. The hours spent running round the garden, exercising on the climbing frame or simply dreaming on the swing will be time well spent.
