A fundamental movement skills program of the highest quality

Fit Kids is an exercise life-skills programme, designed around exactly the right combination of movement skills and activities that growing bodies need.

What Our Clients Say

What I like most about fit kids is that it’s not just about the exercises and activities, it’s about helping children find confidence within themselves to go out and try new things with their body.  That’s the part that’s often missing with so many of these programmes that are more concerned with ticking off items on a lesson plan.


The highlight of Nate’s week is FitKids on a Tuesday. I am always impressed by the coach’s ability to lovingly inspire the group of busy pre schoolers and hold their attention while keeping them enthusiastic. Thank you!


Aymee Loves FitKids!! She came home today and started skipping with a skipping rope! She had never done it before!  She also is very keen to show us how well she can do her burpees!!


It’s done wonders for my James who has thrived on being able to achieve goals. His confidence has grown and he now tries EVERYTHING. Even riding his bicycle off road, which for a very cautious boy is huge. It’s all from the sense of achievement and confidence in his body he gets at fit kids.


So many parents think it’s important for their pre-schooler to start rugby or tennis or dancing as young as 6, or even 5 or 4, but without the kind of base that FitKids is providing, those sport skills are totally pointless.  That’s my view as a teacher anyway.

Fit Kids instant gratification

On instant gratification: Why learning to wait makes children nicer

Learning to wait for things is a learned habit, and one that we all need to practice, for ourselves and our children. I’m not proud to admit it, but when my WIFI takes too long to load a page, I shout at my screen.  When a car drives too slowly in front of me, I […]

Shaping the way children feel about exercise

I was recently reading the September 2009 President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports Research Digest, which found that ‘positive character development achieved through physical activity is linked to positive adult role models.’ This means that the more chances a child has to be exposed to an adult that shows them care and respect, and at the same […]

Encourage everyday exercise, not sporting achievement

  If I could give every school a word of advice, it would be this: Separate the practice of exercise from the practice of sport. I’m willing to stick my neck out and say that every single adult who lives a less-than-active lifestyle does so because of a negative association with sport-based exercise as a […]

Cranberry oat breakfast biscuits

We’re a big fan of oats. They’re highly nutritious, packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, healthy carbs, protein and fats. They’re amongst the most nutrient dense foods you can eat, which is why they’re absolutely the perfect breakfast food for busy children and adults alike, and pretty much a staple in our house all year round. […]

Hidden veggies: Chocolate avocado pudding

This avo chocolate pudding had us giggling all weekend! In general our daughter has a problem eating anything that may possibly have been of plant origin.  Avocado’s have been a particular food hate of hers even though the rest of the family can’t get enough of them. So when she spent over an hour savouring this super […]

Why obstacle course racing is great for Fit Kids

I was really excited to meet the guys from The Grind Obstacle course racing a couple of weeks ago to find out more about their family obstacle course event on 3rd December. I was even more excited when they asked if Fit Kids would like to run their Little G course for kids aged 4 […]

Eggy ‘muffin’ cups

You know how we like our quick and healthy snacks. An old magazine recipe inspired these – our own variation of egg ‘muffins’ that can be whipped up in under 1 minute (excluding cooking time).  They’re really handy for keeping in the fridge to be thrown into lunch boxes or popped into hungry mouths at […]

10 non-boring ideas for spending quality time with your kids

I realised the other day that spending time with my kids is not really quality time unless both of us are enjoying it. When I force myself to play a 4 year old’s game that is beyond boring for me, there’s no fun, and no real connection.  And I’m sure my kids feel the same […]

Mr Fit Kids says: Fast food is not a reward!

Hi.  It’s me, back on my soap box again. I love the interesting conversations I have with my Fit Kids.  We had a fantastic chat yesterday about junk food. There’s a great little guy in one of my classes.  He struggles a bit, but tries so hard and is really feeling great about what he’s […]

Fit Kids pink pancakes

Hidden veggies recipe: Pink pancakes

Always looking for ways to sneak decent nutrients into our daughter’s diet, we thought she’d love these pink pancakes.  Of course she was onto us though… She was immediately suspicious of what made the pancakes pink, and figured out that the hidden ingredient was beetroot pretty quickly! But, she still couldn’t resist tucking into them. […]

Parents: You should let your kids watch more TV!

Don’t you just love the electronic babysitter?  Hours of peace and quiet to get on with important grown up stuff without interruption! You should definitely let your children watch as much TV as they want.  Here’s why: 1.  TV very efficiently uses up time that children might otherwise spend playing, and since children learn best through play, […]

Making my first video tutorial

I made my first video tutorial! At first it was really fun and super easy.  Everyone was having fun, talking through the steps was easy, I had loads to say… then the camera ran out of space and I found out I’d rabbited on for about 6 minutes.  Which is not what I wanted to […]

Fit Kids fruit & veggie muffins

Hidden fruit and veggie muffins

Here’s a great long weekend treat: Muffins with a secret stash of fruits and veggies. When we adapted this recipe from Nigella Lawson to hide some fruit and veggies so that our daughter would eat something of nutritional value, we thought we were sooooo clever.  It didn’t work though, she spotted the good stuff and turned […]

Fit Kids grit

Building ‘grittier’ children

There’s been plenty of talk about grit recently. The first time I watched Angela Lee Duckworth’s TED Talk, I thought what a great word grit is.  It perfectly describes perseverance, tenacity and a determination to succeed.  It’s what successful people are made of, and it’s exactly what being a Fit Kid is all about. Many […]

You’re not going to believe how amazingly delicious these chocolate truffles are.  And even more amazing, they’re amazingly good for you.  They’re so good that they deserve the name ‘amaze-balls’! Here’s why they’re just the best thing ever: 1.  Dates – a natural source of sugar, and also rich in fibre, vitamins B, A and K, […]

Insights inspired by Daniel

You may or may not know that Fit Kids was inspired by my son, Daniel. Dan was always going to be a big guy. And what often comes with bigger children who grow quickly, is that they have a poor grasp of how to use their bodies. It’s as if their body is too big […]

Just move! 5 minutes is all you need

‘We’re living in a society where nobody moves anymore’ – Tony Robbins Tony Robbins got me thinking this week.  I was thinking about how easy it is in our lives these days to NOT move.  We have cars, TV remotes, delivery services… The focus of progress seems to be on helping us move less.  ‘Progress’ […]

Should we reward our kids for every achievement?

My son came home from his swimming lesson a few weeks ago feeling very proud of himself. ‘Dad! I broke my record, AND, I got onto the 50m freestyle board!’ Weekly time-trials are a big deal at his swim school, and I think it teaches the kids some amazing lessons about working towards their goals, and […]
