After School Fitness & Sport 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 “add on” activities include: Street Soccer, Street Footy (AFL skills), Parkour/Gymnastics, Hip Hop Freestyle and Squad Strength and Conditioning 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 Monday through to Thursday.

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

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

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.
