Growing up without the range of technological distractions that tend to suck up our children’s attention made it easier for us to get restless inside and go outside and play. If you are struggling to encourage your child to be more active and are looking to change that, check out this Parents TV clip.
Encouraging a child to do something is often a matter of making the idea sound fun and attractive. In addition to providing tips that can help you make exercise more appealing to your child, this video clip contains advice on instilling active habits in your child at home from a young age.
While active games and exemplary behavior at home can help, many happy children are drawn to group or team sports play outside of the house. If you live in New York City and are looking for a place where your child can learn how to ice skate, practice gymnastics, or play on a basketball or volleyball team, call Aviator Sports and Events Center at (718) 758-7500.

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. To speak with a member of our team about our activities or facilities, call (718) 758-7500.
