Fitness is Fun! is our motto. And so it goes that the emphasis of all
our running programs is on fun, fitness and enjoyment. For many
people, running becomes a life -long activity and passion that youth
love, and in which adults participate far into their golden years.
Children who are taught the proper mechanics of running
often find themselves enjoying new levels of fun and success
in their other sports and activities as well because the skills they
learn generalize to any activity that involves running.
Our programs are mostly educational, taught in a developmental formatand always include opportunities for competition. The emphasis is placed on participation, developing fitness, and finding the "athlete within."
This allows each child to be challenged at their own level of ability,
intensity, and interest level.
Moms and Dads have children of all different levels of ability and motivation. We recommend that you follow the lead of your child. Let him or her tell you when they need a day off, or if they need the pace adjusted. You will find that they stick with their running (or soccer or basketball, etc.) a lot longer!
Our programs are mainly run through the Manalapan, NJ Recreation Department.
We currently mainly serve the Manalapan, Marlboro and Freehold, New Jersey areas.
