Health & Fitness workshop
There are two similar workshops that we run with the foundation element being health. This workshop focuses on the importance of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle, healthy eating and how to achieve a good level of fitness. Fun and engaging exercise sessions are supported by facts (and advice about nutrition and lifestyle) to offer a balanced and valuable learning experience.
Participants are taught how to adapt training and exercise to particular body types. These sessions encourage the group to develop a training programme for themselves to help them understand how easily they can improve their health and fitness. The group are also taught how to train others, how to lead an exercise activity and how to offer support and encouragement to someone trying to improve their fitness level.
The Health & Fitness workshop leaders
The leaders are sports professionals who have been training since they have been in school and have each played or competed in their fields! They are qualified sports trainers and have been teaching their own disciplines (as well as delivering general health and fitness training) to other sports professionals, young people of all ages and backgrounds and adults.
Highlights of the workshop
The aims of these workshops are to:
- build confidence
- develop leadership skills
- develop awareness of healthy living and fitness
- encourage the participants to work with others
- help equip young people with the knowledge necessary to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle
Evidence of participation
Many youth schemes require evidence of learners' participation and achievements in wider learning projects to contribute to the young person's file or CV. Top Dog can support this by providing a Top Dog Certificate of Achievement.
