BALTIMORE – April 26, 2016 – Les Mills has released select programs from its popular children’s fitness classes, BORN TO MOVE™, free of charge on its streaming service LES MILLS™ On Demand. The programs encourage families to participate in more physical activity and kick-start healthy habits early in life. BORN TO MOVE is a series of movement-based classes designed to build confidence and foundational fitness skills through movement, imagination and games. Combining playful music with movement and engaging instruction, BORN TO MOVE videos are offered in 10-minute sessions to get children up off the couch, help hone motor skills and set them up with healthy habits for the future.
“The early years of life are a critical window to form positive habits,” said Dr. Jackie Mills, Chief Creative Officer, Les Mills International. “We want to help instill a love of exercise in children so they can grow into active, healthy and happy adults.”
On Demand BORN TO MOVE sessions require no equipment and are ideal for children ages 4-8. Each BORN TO MOVE class is taught by highly trained health and fitness instructors and teaches age-appropriate motor skills that improve agility, balance, coordination, endurance, flexibility and speed. The programs combine motivating music and age-appropriate movement.
