After School Fitness Program for Kids

The After School Fitness Program at The Athletic Buddha is something we are very passionate about.

We have created a program that we believe has sufficient balance of structured and supervised “free” play offering children a fun interactive start to sport and fitness.

Children need inspiration and confidence to be physically active while trying different sports and learning new skills.

Our program caters for all ability and fitness levels. We love that children can still be active after a full day at school with the flexibility of chilling out if that is their choice.

We offer a variety of fun games and multi sport activities along with supervised homework and creative arts. Our current Term 4, 2021 “add on” activities include: Street Soccer and Kid-Fit Squad classes.

Healthy afternoon tea snacks are prepared daily onsite and include a variety of fruit and vegetables. We have fresh produce delivered to us weekly and our menu rotates seasonally to encourage children to become more curious and excited about trying new and varied foods. Individual dietary requirements are considered and we will endeavour to provide a substitute menu where necessary. 

Our Buddha Bus and Walking Bus currently collects children from the following schools Tuesday & Wednesday’s.

  • St Ambrose Primary School
  • Strathfield North Public School
  • OLA North Strathfield
  • St Patrick’s Mortlake
  • Mortlake Primary School
  • Concord West Primary School

NB: Schools we service are subject to change and availability.

The CrossFit Kids program teaches proper form and mechanics in functional and athletic movements in classes that are different every session with a focus on FUN. Our program teaches children to love fitness by making fitness fun and accessible for all.

Whether your child is a natural athlete or not, we will cater to his or her ability, allowing each child to experience challenge and reward every class.

CrossFit Kids trains children to be generally physically prepared, encompassing all ten general physical skills (strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, speed, agility, power, cardiovascular endurance, and accuracy) and in doing so prepares them for the demands of life.

Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.

Our CrossFit Kids classes cover ages 6-15 and include a dynamic warm-up, skill development, a workout, and every class finishes with a game. Each class is approximately 50 minutes long.

All our coaches are highly experienced and are ‘working with children’ accredited. We are a family run gym that promotes total health and wellness for all ages.
