Like adults, kids need exercise, with regular physical activity helping children build and keep strong muscles and bones, keep a healthy weight and sleep better at night. Besides enjoying the health benefits of exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle the physical and emotional challenges of day-to-day life – from running to catch a bus to studying for a test.


Not everyone is drawn to organised sports, but that shouldn’t mean they don’t get the chance to exercise in a fun environment.


BORN TO MOVE™, which is the newest series of programs from LESMILLS, is providing a new exercise option with their series of active programs for kids.


In BORN TO MOVE™, children learn a variety of skills from martial arts, sports training, games, dance, and yoga, all set to the latest music to keep them motivated.


The revolutionary classes are gaining popularity, with the program now available on the Gold Coast at newly-renovated Southport Sharks Health + Fitness.


Staff at Southport Sharks Health + Fitness believe children these days need more support to get moving and that’s why they decided to introduce LES MILLS BORN TO MOVE™, with the hope that these unique classes would foster positive habits to last a lifetime.


This move is just one of many recent initiatives by Southport Sharks Health + Fitness, which has introduced a brand new functional training area and now has over 120 group fitness classes each week since it’s relaunch.


The centre’s continued efforts have been recognised, with Southport Sharks Health + Fitness recently being named as a Fitness Australia Gold Quality Award recipient for the second year in a row. In addition, they gym received one of only seven Highly Commended Awards.


After trialling demo classes in August, the centre now has classes for 6-7 years and 8-12years up and running, with plenty of positive feedback from both the kids involved and their parents.


Southport Sharks Health + Fitness are so passionate about allowing parents to see the difference that BORN TO MOVE™ will have on their children that they are letting people have one free trial class.


The price after that is from only $8 per class, with options for both members and non-members.
