When kids enter the doors @ Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah , they can’t keep still.

Their natural instinct is to climb, swing, and explore.

For Hyperformance Athletics’ 1st – 5th grade classes, kids spend time hanging, jumping, and yes, going upside down. While it looks like play, they are developing movement patterns that pay off later in sports. They are building stamina and confidence.

Come see how Hyperformance Athletics makes fitness fun!

Mondays 3:30 -4:15PM
Wednesdays 3:30-4:15PM

Savannah physician: How to stay fit during the holidays

Savannah physicians healthcare SouthCoast

Pushing aside your wellness goals and exercise routine during the holiday season is not a good idea.

SouthCoast Health Primary Care Physician Dr. Robert Remler offers tips on how to jump start your healthy New Year’s Resolutions here.

“This time of year is infamous for skipping altogether daily exercise and calorie counting,” SouthCoast Health Primary Care Physician Dr. Robert Remler said. “It’s just as tempting to put weight loss and muscle building goals to the side until New Year’s rolls around, but waiting just makes everything a much harder and longer process.”

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah guest post on making habits stick

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

Fit Kids Fest 2019 Savannah Junior League CrossFitHP

Below is a guest post from Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah 

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you always did healthy things all the time without even thinking about it?

That’s the beauty of a habit. It just happens without a whole lot of resistance.

We’ll got habits – the routine things we do from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep (even the way we sleep is a routine).

Our kids have habits too. Some are great, and some we wish as parents we could break before it gets harder later in life.

Here are few tips for making some of those things we KNOW we should be doing more of a habit. (These are good for grownups and well as kids.)

One thing at time. Don’t try to pile on multiple new habits at once. That’s a recipe for failure.

Pair the habit with something you already do routinely. For instance, if you’ve decided that you should drink more water, connect it with something you already do. Perhaps when you turn the water on to take a shower in the morning, it triggers you to go snag a quick drink as you wait for the shower to warm up.

Chunk it down. Reduce resistance to getting started by setting a goal in the smallest increment possible. If getting more activity during the day is a goal, you’re not likely to stop your other habits to work in 30 minutes. But if you can work in 1 minute a couple of times a day you’ll find you are getting in much more than that one minute. Getting started is the hardest part.

Reward yourself (with something healthy of course, but enjoyable). My kids don’t love to read, but they like their time with me. So we read for a bit and then they get some bonus attention that is just theirs.

Take notice. You want your kids to pick up after themselves? Verbally applaud them for doing the task as soon as notice it getting even a tiny bit better.

Progress is better than perfection. Our habits are always a work in progress. Keep looking for news ways to make doing the good stuff easier.

Want more ideas? Check out the the Junior League of Savannah’s FREE Fit Kids Fest on Sat. March 2 2019, 1-4PM @ Savannah State University. There will all sorts of activities and local vendors that love to make Savannah families healthier. Stop by the Hyperformance Athletics Obstacle Course and say hello.

Kids’ Fitness Classes @ Hyperformance Athletics of Savannah

Crossfit Kids Savannah

Sport as a metaphor for life. Kids learn so much through sport. Just to name a few…

Setting goals and expectations
Dealing with disapointment
Pushing through being uncomfortable
Teamwork
Sportsmanship
Integrity
Persitance

Exposing kids to multiple sports, both individual and team based, are an important part of growing up. Not to mention kids connect movement with fun and success. Make that connection when they are young and your children are much more likely to enjoy a healthy, active adulthood.

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah offers the foundation of that success. Their program for elementary-aged kids exposes them to new physical challenges each session. Those challenges present opportunities to grow in character and in fitness.

New students are invited to join us for a free trial class any Wednesday at 4:30PM or any Saturday at 10:15AM (no class Saturday 10/26) at Hyperformance Athletics, 904 E 70th St. 912-335-3515.

CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah guest post on improving sleep routines

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Crossfit savannah hyperformance

Below is a guest post from CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah:

What’s your Sleep Routine?

This month at Hyperformance Kids we’re showing off our sleep routines! We’re talking about the benefits of a good night sleep and how having a routine can help. The better you sleep the better you feel.

Sleep is also imperative to maximize learning. Our brains processes both new physical tasks (like coordination) and information during sleep. Your body’s recovery processes and growth hormone release are heightened during deeper stages of sleep.

Here are some tips to try:

1.) Cut off overhead lights at dusk. As it gets darker outside, cut back on the brightness inside too. It signals their bodies to start winding down. My boys love lighting candles and dimming the lights.

2.) Cut off devices and screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime. In the summertime I like to take a walk outside in the natural changing light with my boys. They are also less tempted to go back to the screen.

3.) Reflect. Our family has “couch time”. Each person gets a minute to talk about the best part of their day. It forces us to stop what we are doing and just be together for a couple of precious minutes.

4.) Prep the next day. Not just laying out clothes and making lunch, but ask your kids what they are looking forward to the next day. They will start to connect the things they want to do with a desire to feel ready and well-rested for it.

Of course, lots of exercise and time outdoors during the day helps too! And nothing is wrong with a little power nap from time to time either.

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

It’s called Exercise Deficit Disorder.

And it’s a problem, especially for our children.

Changes in our lifestyle over the last few generations (consuming more high calorie, low nutrient food and moving less) are the primary cause of increased obesity rates in our kids. It’s far more than genetic. And it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Sedentary behavior is contributing to the decline of health indicators in children and adults, with behavior patterns beginning to emerge as soon as age 6 and worsening into adulthood. The shift in activity pattern has now been coined “Exercise Deficit Disorder”. We believe that being healthy is more than having good physical markers. It’s also having the ability to learn new things, focus, control emotions, make friends, and feel generally happy. As parents, we want our kids to be healthy in mind and body.

The youth program at  Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah specifically addresses these issues. As a Crossfit Kids Affiliate, “The program is comprised of elements designed to reduce Exercise Deficit Disorder and poor lifestyle choices: laying the foundational movement patterns, providing children with a portion of the prescribed amount of exercise for the week, improving muscular and cardiovascular fitness, discussing the roles of food, and providing endless opportunities for success – all while keeping the class and it’s information fun and engaging.” From Crossfit Kids Training Guide.

The purpose of the Hyperformance Youth program is to attack the prevalence of Exercise Deficit Disorder. Classes for rising 1st through 5th grade students happen every Wednesday at 3:30PM and Saturday at 10:15AM.
