Active Bodies = Bright Minds

Our vision is for a generation who values exercise - and chooses to keep it in their lives - because they have a concrete experience of how it helped them in the classroom, on the playground, and in everyday life.

The Body/Brain Connection

Don't dismiss exercise as being all about fitness & strength! Scientists keep telling us how physical activity improves things like memory, reading, writing, problem solving, and even concentration and behaviour in the classroom.

Long Term Benefits

A healthy, active lifestyle is known to improve mental health, prevent lifestyle diseases, and help combat the increasing obesity problem. Learning exercise life-skills in the early years, sets children up with these skills for life.

Exercise, not Sport

Sport is a great way to keep exercise in our lives, but it's not the only way. Most children believe exercise and sport are the same thing, which means if they don't think of themselves as sporty, they lose interest in exercise, and avoid it.

Teach the Fit Kids way

Feel confident that your exercise classes or PE lessons are meeting children's developmental needs, giving them a fun experience of exercise, and building a pattern of positive exercise behaviours, that will amplify across their lifetime.

About Fit Kids

I believe that every child deserves to experience exercise the Fit Kids way. This is why I've built a coach training programme and ongoing support community. Now coaches everywhere can play their part in setting up children for long term confidence in exercising.

Simon McQueen

Founder & creator

Fit Kids was born of a need to give my own children a high quality exercise education. Drawing on my 20+ years working as a Phys. Ed. teacher and sports coach, I've created the exact mix of movement skills and habits that children need to thrive - both now, and in the future.

PRE-SCHOOL PRINCIPAL

Fit Kids is fantastic because children are given the opportunity to develop the kind of strength they need to help with concentration and learning, in a way that really makes sense to them and that they look forward to.

PRE-SCHOOL TEACHER

We love having Fit Kids at our school. The children learn new things every week, they're never bored, and we love how encouraging Simon is. It makes the lesson feel fun, even when it's hard work.
