Improve physical coordination in children

Improve physical coordination in children, strengthen the muscles, relieve school stress, planting the seed for a life full of mobility at an early age

The joy of active play will come on its own

The sun is shining and beckons to spend some quality time outside. Unfortunately, most kids prefer to remain indoors in front of the PC or game console despite the wonderful weather. They quickly become stay-at-homes with little interest in the world outside. Regular exercise is, however, a very important aspect for the growing mind and body: specific movement sequences and physical coordination should really be practised from an early age. "Coordination training is particularly important at pre-school age. Movement sequences must be embodied and developed, as they are the basis for later physical learning," explains sports management expert and KETTLER product developer Oliver Gützlaff. Every child has a natural drive towards being active. Running, climbing, jumping, or balancing – all these activities strengthen the muscles, reinforce bone structure, and improve physical and mental abilities. Many kids today, however, lack the motivation to go outside and play in the fresh air. They miss out on the benefits of regular exercise, which includes working out mental stresses from school and everyday life.

Parents should make sure to encourage their children to spend time outdoors. There are many KETTLER play vehicles available that can help motivate kids into becoming more physically active. From ride-ons to balance bikes, and from tricycles and scooters to bicycles. The joy of active play will come on its own!
