Frequently asked question:     

What is a good age for children to start working out?    Lets start with the youngsters.     Children in K-5th grade should be getting a minimum of 30 to 45 minutes of daily exercise.    Playground, fun exercises, dodgeball, basketball, baseball, football, etc.    If this is made fun and not overly competitive, our children will do more of it and enjoy it.  Most schools in Temecula and Murrieta have lost there P.E.  programs at the Elementary Schools.     Look into after school programs or your local park for fun exercise for children 5 to 11 years. If your children are over the age of 12,  they are old enough to begin light resistance and workout in a gym with supervision and proper training.    Children over the age 12 should not lift heavy weights and should learn to implement proper form. "Functional training" is a great way to start your children on an athletic/resistance program.      Please visit our website to see the video:  Functional Fitness Video
