Fitcamp Jr. designed for kids

Parents have requested a program to help get children active





For almost five years, the Bodynetix Fitcamp has been one of the Comox Valley’s most popular adult workouts. Participants receive a high-paced, well-rounded workout that burns fat, builds strength, tones core, helps reduce stress and increase energy, a spokesperson noted.

Starting in November, Bodynetix is taking that same success formula and putting it into their new Fitcamp Jr. Leading the way will be Bodynetix’s newest trainer, Highland Secondary grad and former BC Summer Games dual bronze medallist Kendra Parker.

“Kendra was chosen out of many applicants to be our newest trainer. Her experience coaching as well as her experience in high level athletics and local girl status made her the perfect candidate to head up our new line of youth and youth athlete services,” explains Chris Ketch, president of Bodynetix.

“We have had a ton of requests from parents who want to see their kids more active. These kids may not be athletes which can make it hard for some to get the exercise they need. Our FitCamp Jr. will get your average, underactive child in to fantastic shape and hopefully  inspire some lasting lifestyle changes.”

Participants will be broken into two age groups, 10-13 and 14-17, and will run twice a week after school for each group. Actual days and times are to be announced. See website or e-mail to be notified once spots become available.
