Brain Pump

BrainpumpAre you looking for a fun outlet for your child that nurtures wellness, fitness, coordination, balance, attention and learning, all while interacting and playing with their peers? If so, then Brain Pump might be what you are looking for!

Brain Pump is a group exercise class, targeting children 4-12 years of age.  The class is the collaboration of a Physical Therapist and a Kinesiology Professor combining traditional therapy and exercise concepts with the latest cutting edge research on movement and the brain.  Brain Pump incorporates exercises with a strong neurological component that promote gross motor skills, balance, core strengthening, crossing midline activities, coordination and proprioception (body awareness).   All of these promote better organization and maturity of a child’s nervous system, often positively effecting attention and learning.  The intensity of the class is also designed to keep the child’s heart rate at a level that research shows most stimulates the brain. This is all done in a fun, energetic setting, that seems much more like playing than exercising.  Brain Pump is taught at Metro Fitness on Saturday’s from 11:00-11:45 AM. Please contact Tiffany Higginbotham at Body Logic PT & Wellness (334-380-5920) if you are interested in reserving a spot in the next class.  New classes begin January 9th 2016.
