Children and Strength – 3 Variables to Consider Before Your Child Should Start a Structured Program!

If you are thinking about getting your child involved in a structured exercise program then there are a few variables that you need to consider. For the sake of this article I will address 3 variables that you should consider before signing your child up for a well-structured fitness, weight-loss, or strength program. Before considering more serious methods of childhood fitness for your kid or kids you should ask yourself the following 3 questions:

1. Is your child mentally mature enough? This is a very important question because I have trained or attempted to train adults that were not mentally mature enough to workout. If you do your job and hire a competent trainer that is on top of their game then you will only be half-way done. Most all failed fitness programs are due to participant failure, not the program that is being taught. This is key in whether or not your childs fitness and strength program will be successful.

2 Is your child coachable? Once again, this is a big question. Perhaps your child has the mental maturity to workout, but are they interested in it? Are they committed? If your kid is not going to put forth the effort, then they will not succeed in the program. They have to be coachable. Every successful athlete and participant has to be coachable in order to make progress. Even with the help of a coach or trainer this is a must. Any great coach or trainer will tell you the same thing!

3. Is your child physically ready? Ok, now we have addressed the mental maturity and attitude, so what about the physical part? This is also an important one. Once again, physically your kid has to be coordinated and able to participate. If they cannot because they are simply to little or not able to handle the most basic tasks then they are truly not ready! I know this seems like an obvious statement, but sometimes parents have a difficult time admitting the truth to themselves. When strength training with kids, or with anybody, the participant has to meet certain criteria. Don’t just assume your child is ready just because they say they are. Do your due diligence to find out!
