The most detailed and comprehensive youth wellness program ever assembled
Childhood obesity and chronic inactivity are growing problems all over the world. Motion Evolution’s mission is to counteract obesity and inactivity by transforming fitness into an enjoyable priority for children. MoEv programs have spread to over 30 states and Canada, and Salem Gymnastics Sports Center has been hand selected and exclusively licensed to offer the Motion Evolution program in the Winston-Salem area!
Motion Evolution is based on the premise that children are made to move, and with proper instruction, they can learn to move well. When children know how to move, they gain confidence and learn to appreciate the joys of an active lifestyle. Think of it this way: To say ”my child just is not athletic – we won’t enroll him in a fitness class” is like saying “my child is not good at math – let’s skip that class”
By positively influencing children’s wellness and fitness and integrating exercise into a healthy life concept, Motion Evolution counteracts the forces encouraging obesity and teaches children how to live a healthy life!
are sharper. They’re more attentive, they’re less impulsive, and they’re less fidgety. They can sustain their attention longer, and it promotes their ability to sort through information and take it in.
Personal Best. Based on only personal best of each child (as opposed to the competition model more commonly found in traditional institutions and programs), the Motion Evolution program encourages healthy mental and emotional approaches to measuring true progress in all areas of life.
Nutritional Education. Nutritional Education must be integrated into a wellness and fitness program to be effective. The Motion Evolution program gently and playfully informs children about what, why, when and how to eat. This is essentially the nutritional literacy system that must accompany a physical literacy program!
Movement through Play and Teamwork. FUN is the way children learn! Keeping this in mind, the Motion Evolution program utilizes games that develop a wide array of qualities. These include spatial awareness, memory, social skills, self control, leadership skills, field/ground discrimination, listening, and many others.
Wellness Motivation. The Motion Evolution program creates a motivating physical activity environment for children. Consequently, it delivers a higher level of perceived competence and self esteem in each child.
