Beginning Potential class designed to build solid fitness foundation

As the weather turns cooler, parents often have difficulty finding ways to keep their young children active.

Potential Plus, an athletic performance enhancement program in Hurricane, offers Beginning Potential, a class created for elementary school students to build a solid foundation for lifelong fitness.

"Beginning Potential helps younger students build their motor skills and coordination through fun and functional exercises during skill-hungry years of development," said Brad Coleman, a Potential Plus instructor.

The class helps improve balance, foot speed, coordination, speed and agility, core strength and conditioning.

"The students participate through circuits, relay races, obstacle courses and other fun and challenging exercises. These activities are great for building a strong fitness ethic, but the kids simply think of it as play," said Coleman.

Beginning Potential classes start Nov. 5 and end Dec. 12.

The registration fee is $100 per student.

For more information about the classes, call Potential Plus Director Matt Smith at 304-757-7293.
