Fit-Trition - Become a Healthy Role Model!
Recent research has found that UK children are being overlooked when it comes to healthy living, with parents blaming a lack of time, money and knowledge.
Two thirds of parents asked during our recent poll say they don’t know enough to educate their children about healthy living, while 37% blame lack of time and 30% cite the cost of healthy food and gym facilities as a barrier.
All in all, 60% of parents admit they lead a healthier lifestyle than their children!
This is why Premier Transition are encouraging parents to lead their children by example and, using the Fit-Trition initiative, become the healthy role model their children need to be inspired and become more active.
The scheme is backed by Olympic gold medallist and mother-of-three, Sally Gunnell OBE, who was shocked by the figures and says families need more support to get active if future generations are to stay fit and healthy.
She said: “These are truly worrying statistics. Parents lead very busy lives, but we are facing a child obesity epidemic, so it’s vital that we do all we can to give our kids the best start in life. A positive approach to healthy living starts in the home, but there’s plenty the wider community, including schools, can do to support parents and ensure a joined up approach to family wellbeing.”
Fit-Trition classes offer familiar, practical fitness activities designed for parents to provide a functional and convenient opportunity to exercise, underpinned by a whole family approach to nutritional guidance.
Fit-Trition parent fitness sessions are conveniently held at your child’s school to fit around your daily routine.
The programme offers busy parents a 12 week course divided into two blocks of six sessions. Each block is designed in such a way that the participants work solely against their own personal best.
