COMMON QUESTIONS:

Is TempoFit Kids right for me?

Anyone who wants to get fitter, faster and have fun moving in nature’s playground! Whether you’re training for another sport, focusing on running or just wanting to get fit, TempoFit Kids is for you!

What happens at TempoFit Kids?

Most sessions start off with a short jog and drills to warm up, then we will learn running technique or new exercises before doing some fun relays, challenges, strength and agility exercises, and running games.

What should I bring?

Wear running shoes, shorts and a t-shirt. Bring warm clothes to put on before and after the session. Always bring a drink bottle. Please do not bring valuables (e.g. phones and wallets) that may be left unattended as we can’t guarantee these will be watched all the time.

How exhausting is TempoFit Kids?

We believe that if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong. So smiles is the number one goal. And part of getting there is doing plenty of stuff you know you can do at your level and doing just a couple of things each session that test the limits. So, expect to feel pleasantly tired but massively amped after each session.

What happens if it’s raining?

If it’s just showers we will go ahead, but if the weather is super wet and/or super windy we will text all registered parents/caregivers before 2pm to confirm or cancel. If you don’t hear from us, assume it’s on.
