Junior Hero Academy

"Mum, it's not about being thin, it's about being strong"
quote from one of my 11 year-old Hero Academy girls

There's nothing like getting them young and teaching them the ways of the force!  These awesome children, whom I am privileged enough to train at Junior Hero Academy, learn fundamental, primal moves that will set them up for life with good form and posture and strong core muscles.

If you can do an overhead squat and a press up perfectly, well, then, everything is in perfect alignment!

These kids are incredible!  They are strong, determined and they work hard!

Here are some of the things we've been up to recently:

 Planking - it's ok on its own but make it a competition and all of a sudden, you can triple your time!


Overhead squats                                                         Pistol Squats

Rope climbs


Practising double-unders

 Great hip mobility!

Pull ups

 These kids take their gorilla stance very seriously!

You have to match the guns with strong triceps!
