Rapid Fitness to Offer ZumbAtomic® for Children Ages 5-12 at Its Glenwood Location

Raleigh Fitness Center Launches New Class for Children That Incorporates a Variety of Movements, Dances and Games

Raleigh, NC, February 20, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Rapid Fitness (http://www.rapidfitness.com), powered by Triumph Group Management, has announced that the gym is offering ZumbAtomic®, a fun and healthy program designed for kids using the Zumba® concept, and incorporating a variety of movements, dances and games. The class also embeds social skills, discipline, respect and leadership skills in a fun but structured way. No previous experience is needed to participate in the class.

The ZumbaAtomic® classes began Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 4:30 p.m. and will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 p.m. - 5:15 p.m. at the Glenwood Avenue location at 7101 Glenwood Ave. Classes are open to all children and special discounts are available for parents who join Rapid Fitness with a kid’s Zumba membership.

One out of every five American children is overweight, primarily due to inactivity and poor nutritional choices, and will face increasing health problems related to this as he or she matures. ZumbAtomic® is aimed to counteract these problems with a kid-friendly workout that is as much about fun as it is about fitness. Children will learn fitness dances, play fun motivational games, and learn new rhythms and styles of music and culture. All classes are taught to cultivate individuality and creativity, team work, pride, confidence, and responsibility.

It is recommended that children take part in structured exercise throughout the week. ZumbAtomic® classes are a great way to keep kids active and entertained. By taking part in structured exercise classes, children will be on their way to living a healthy life and are less likely to suffer from obesity and other health-related issues as an adult. Exercise is important for children’s growth and development, not only for their body but also their minds. ZumbAtomic® helps to develop confidence, coordination, stamina, balance, discipline, memory and creativity.

“Rapid Fitness is committed to helping reduce childhood obesity, which has become a significant dilemma in our country,” said Michael Rattenni, owner of Rapid Fitness. “Our ZumbAtomic® classes will help kids stay active and participate in a program that is a lot of fun yet good for their physical well-being. The kids will be able to make new friends, gain confidence and improve their motor skills and coordination dramatically.”
