Stay injury-free as you gear up for a healthier 2018 with an injury-prevention & fitness development workshop, a special session for families with children who are actively involved in sports.
Many parents enrol their children in sports activities, but children who specialize in a sport too early could develop muscle imbalances, raising injury risk at a young age. Sports injuries accounted for a quarter of all injuries to children and adolescents.
The trend is on the rise due to increasing participation in sports at all ages.
Gleneagles Hospital together with SSTAR Fitness are conducting a workshop which aims to educate adults and children aged 7 to 13 years old on the right techniques to exercise safely. Through short lectures, hands-on exercises and activities, you will learn what is the best running gait and how to build foundational fitness to exercise injury-free for life.
Participants can expect a fun bonding session with their children with new knowledge to gain. The workshop will be conducted by Dr Lim Yi-Jia, Orthopaedic Specialist from Gleneagles Hospital and Andrew Cheong, Head Coach of SSTAR Fitness.
