Fitnance is in the process of creating weekly programming for children between 5 and 15 years. The concept aims to develop holistic health and fitness components relative to the age group. Such foci include balance, hand-eye coordination, general strength, agility, and general well-being.
The duration of the sessions will be 45 to 60 minutes depending on the age group. There will be two groups which will be divided according to age (5-10, 11-15) and the activity sessions will be generated around specific focus points.
The programming is currently underway, so watch this space for updates!
Hi everyone! Some of you may have seen me running around the Fitnance Gym over the past couple of weeks and may have met me already, but for those who haven’t, here’s a little introduction.
My name is Jessica (feel free to call me Jess) and I am currently in my 4th year at QUT, studying a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement Studies. I will be working at Fitnance for approximately 2 months as part of my practicum experience.
I am interested in the field of strength and conditioning, sports injury rehabilitation and also corporate health. I’ve had coaching experience with adolescents, have dabbled a little bit in the corporate health area, and am currently working at another gym as a Gym Floor Instructor.
I have enjoyed my time with Fitnance so far and have met some very nice people. I am looking forward to the following weeks and hope to have the opportunity to meet the rest of you and perhaps make you sweat a little!
So now you know my little story, so feel free to come up and say hi!
See you at the gym
I am currently studying my forth year of a double bachelor degree in Business management and human movement studies at Queensland University of Technology and am hoping to gain experience in personal training, sports training and injury rehabilitation whilst completing practical placements.
I have played soccer (football) in the Brisbane Women’s Premier League competition in both Reserve grade and Premier grade teams for the past nine years up until recent weeks when I have been forced out of the game because of a second ACL injury and pending reconstruction. I hope to continue my involvement with sport, in particular women’s football, using my human movement knowledge to support others.
