In addition to benefiting the health and everyday temperament of a child, regular exercise is vital to his or her development. In order to reap the full benefits of exercise, children and adolescents should exercise for a minimum of one hour each day. For tips on encouraging your child to exercise this much and a breakdown of how to optimize the impact this exercise has on his or her physical and mental development, continue reading below.
Effective at building stamina and improving cardiovascular health, aerobic exercise is essential to the development of a healthy, strong child. Any sport that requires your child to run or otherwise work up his or her heart rate can your child meet his or her aerobic exercise needs. Aerobic exercise should make up between two-thirds and three-fourths of your child’s exercise regimen, a goal that can easily be met through a combination of physical education training in school and extracurricular sports practice.
90% of your child’s bone mass will develop by the time he or she reaches the age of 20. Weight-bearing exercises, including running and jumping, are the best way to increase your child’s bone mass and pave the way for a bone healthy adult life.
Push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and other exercises that focus on a particular muscle or muscle group should be practiced by your child a minimum of three days per week. Muscle training exercise is often built into sports league practice.
At Aviator Sports and Events Center in New York City, we are proud to offer a safe and fun environment in which children can get the physical activity they need to thrive. From the aerobic and bone strengthening activity required of soccer to the muscle training that occurs on the rock wall, we have sports leagues and group activities that will help your child develop a love for exercise at a young age.

NYC DOT TO RESURFACE PORTIONS OF THE BELT PARKWAY FROM FLATBUSH AVENUE TO ROCKAWAY PARKWAY
Work will require full overnight closure of Belt Parkway in eastbound direction
As the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) continues to address roadways across the five boroughs this year, crews will be milling and resurfacing key portions of the eastbound Belt Parkway between Flatbush Avenue and Rockaway Parkway from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. beginning on Monday, September 15 to provide a safer, smoother roadway for Brooklyn drivers. The closures will occur Monday nights through Saturday mornings and last for approximately three weeks. During this project, motorists will be guided through a detour route, which exits at Flatbush Avenue, proceeds to Utica/Flatlands Avenues, then East 76th Street/Paerdegat Avenue, Seaview Avenue and returns to the Belt Parkway via Rockaway Parkway. Flatlands and Pennsylvania Avenues become a designated alternate route. DOT is coordinating with NYPD, which will post traffic enforcements agents along the detour. Signs indicating the detour route will be installed as additional guidance.
Work will not occur on the nights of Wednesday, September 24, and Thursday, September 25, in observance of Rosh Hashanah. Work will resume on the night of Friday, September 26.
In the coming weeks, DOT will announce full closures for the westbound Belt Parkway as details are made available.

If you are a parent, it is important to encourage your children to be physically active. Not only does physical activity boost a child’s health and well-being, but sports and other activities can also foster self-confidence, social bonds, and a variety of other important developmental skills. Whether you sign your kids up for a sports team or encourage them to get outside and play, physical activity is an important part of any weekly family routine. Here is a look at some tips to help you motivate your kids to be active.
When you are choosing a sport for your child, it is important to find an age-appropriate activity. If you choose a sport or league that is too advanced for your child, he or she may become frustrated. By signing your child up for a sport that is designed for his or her age group, you will ensure that your son or daughter has a great time on the field.
In order to motivate your kids to be active, it is important to be highly supportive at all times. You can show your support by attending games and matches, or by practicing sports with your child over the weekends.
Your children may become discouraged if they are not having fun while they are engaging in physical activity. To provide motivation for your kids, it is essential to encourage fun at all times. By ensuring that your kids are having a great time while they play sports, you will foster a lifelong love of physical fitness.
At Aviator Sports and Events Center, we offer a variety of sporting leagues for children of all ages. Whether your child is interested in ice skating or soccer, we are sure to offer a sport that matches their interests.
