A little goes a LONG way

Star story:
I need to share a little story of one of my clients-
Last week at little bigs she managed a 50 sec plank, her best time EVER.
This motivated her to do a 30 sec plank almost every day for the past week.
Yesterday at training, she cranked out 10 push ups on her toes. She has never been able to to ONE on her toes before!
We were both so proud of her efforts.
All those little things that we do can add up to big changes, and a little win can snowball into doing things you think you would never achieve!
Even if it’s only 5 minutes, keep on keeping on, congratulate yourself when you work hard, & always do your very best, every little bit counts!

Y is for YOUR response

E is for Expectation

little big FIT POSTER 4e

Expect the learner to ‘have a go’, its alright not to get it the first time, just keep trying! There should be no fear of failure in learning, its counterproductive because learners will shy away from attempting things if there is a fear factor.

Having an expectation of children to learn gives them some autonomy, it shows them that you trust them enough to be able to achieve things by themselves. Great for their self esteem!

March activities

Well its been a great March at Little Big Fitness. For the littles we concerntrated on ‘me’, and made a book, focusing on one body part a week and drawing, writing then seeing what we can do with it.

The adults had initial fitness testing, the basics of a 300 set, and boxing. Its been a bit of a short month, so we extended the ‘Me’ book theme and will move onto ‘some of my favorite things’ in April (with an Easter activity as well), then start on ‘Pirates’ in May (so excited!)

So here are some of the kids beautiful artwork so far, thanks guys, you have been fantastic!
