    Lionheart Fitness Kids Expands Award-Winning Children's Sports Program Throughout US

    Lionheart Fitness Kids, an award-winning fitness program dedicated to keeping kids actively engaged in physical activities while developing positive interpersonal habits, has announced they will be expanding into 10 new cities in 2014. Preparing to open in Boston MA, Seattle WA, Portland OR, Austin TX, Houston TX, Washington D.C., San Diego CA, Orange County CA, Atlanta GA and Phoenix AZ, Lionheart’s CEO and founder John Skoryna says, “Our expansion is just another step towards our mission to empower all children through fitness and battle the health issues today’s kids face.”

    Recently named the #1 kids’ fitness program in the nation by the United States Children’s Fitness Association, Lionheart has designed a program specifically for kids ages 2 to 6 years. Experts agree that this is the period of time when it is very important for children to achieve significant milestones in mental development, physical development, and social development.  Lionheart has developed a “performance based” coaching style that keeps the kids thoroughly interested and engaged in the lesson plan. As a non-competitive program, Lionheart allows kids to develop at their own pace and places tremendous emphasis on building self-confidence and forming positive habits. Lionheart coaches go through an extensive training process and are held to the highest coaching standards in the industry. Coaches are trained to always put the children first and to do whatever is necessary to ensure the child has a positive experience. As a result, the children develop a healthy attitude towards teamwork, nutrition and fitness.

    Another key factor to the expansive success of Lionheart Fitness Kids is the way in which the program is structured. The mind of a preschool age child requires constant stimulation and variety to develop properly. With Lionheart’s creative, energy-packed five-week sessions, kids get just enough time to build a foundation in each sport before moving on to a new activity. Lionheart kids are offered a large variety of sports including soccer, baseball, flag football, basketball, track & field, volleyball, and gymnastics. This structure keeps the kids excited and involved, allowing them to form lifelong positive habits.

    For parents unable to afford the program, Lionheart even offers a scholarship program so that no child is exempt from potentially participating.

    Lionheart Fitness Kids has found popularity among celebrity parents in Beverly Hills and prestigious preschools nationwide. As a Preferred Vendor for Bright Horizons Preschools, Lionheart has aligned itself with some of the biggest companies in the world, providing classes for Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, Samuel Goldwyn Entertainment and Pixar Pictures, just to name a few.
