After years of working with kids we've learned that training has to be simple and it has to be FUN. Whether kids come to FMU for general fitness or more specific athletic development, our goal is to get them to move better. Our programs are designed to improve strength, coordination, speed, endurance and agility for a wide range of sports and activities. We have found that a well guided, play-based model is one of the best ways to increase a child's athletic development. Most importantly, when they are having this much fun that they WANT to keep doing it!
We believe athletics should build confidence, motivate kids to challenge themselves, reward individuals for effort, encourage mistakes, celebrate accomplishments, eliminate all fear of failure, and ultimately inspire kids to be the best they can be.....More importantly we want them to understand that these ideals are not for personal gain. Our main goal is to empower all of our FMU kids to use the talents, successes, and gifts they have been blessed with to make a difference in the world around them!! We're on a mission to fuel a #ItsNotAboutMe attitude. This is why we end every class with the FMU chant "I WILL....BE THE BEST.....THAT I.....CAN BE!"
Fit Minis (4-5) Fitlets (5-6), Inspire (7-10) Ignite (11-14) classes all focus on age-specific development. With a play based model in mind, classes begin with a fun activity to get the kids warmed up and stretched out. Each week we plan age appropriate challenges that focus on improving strength, speed, coordination, athletic movement, and conditioning. Kids are encouraged to participate in our level system where they work to accomplish specific challenges and progress through a color coded level sheet. All of our classes incorporate big group activities, small group activities, and individual free play.
***ALL KIDS CLASSES incorporate our obstacles***
Obstacle Course Club (8-12) just focuses more on obstacle training. Classes start with a fun activity to get the kids warmed up and stretched out. Each week we plan age appropriate challenges that focus on improving strength, speed, coordination, athletic movement, and conditioning. The obstacle course challenges emphasize skills that are more specific to obstacle course racing. Kids are encouraged to participate in our level system where they work to accomplish specific challenges and progress through a color coded level sheet.
Football Training Class with Coach Matt Wilhem (8-10 and 11-13) Coach Matt Wilhelm is a NFL Super Bowl champion linebacker, an 8 year NFL veteran, Ohio State national champion, family man, and faithful man. He’s passionate about sharing years of football knowledge and experience to train young athletes the proper way. A four week session starts each week with dynamic warmups, speed and agility training, age appropriate strength and conditioning, injury preventative exercises, character building.
Fit Minis, Fitlets, Inspire and Ignite and OC Club Classes are $70. Football training with Matt Wilhelm $80. Fees include one class per week for a four week session (see below for days and times).
Due to the high volume of kids currently in our programs, and a growing wait list, there are NO REFUNDS or CREDITS. We allow ONE MAKE-UP per session at an open open or pop in class. All make ups must be scheduled during the 4 week session in which the absence occurs.
Pop In classes are a great option for families that can not commit to a 4 week session. Structured just like our regular classes, pop in classes are booked on a week by week basis so you're only paying for the classes you can attend. You can still count on having a sturctured hour of coach led instruction (and all the fun that comes with it) . These classes are also a great option for youth athletes who are working to prepare for specific events; 5K races, school competitions/sports, local Ninja competitions (FMU hosts a youth Obstacle Course Championships quarterly).
Open gyms are open to ALL kids ages 6-high school! These are a free-play format! Kids play on our ninja obstacles and take on Coach Theo's "Fitness Challenges of the Day" and games of the day.
