Personal Training for Children
The regular practice of sports provides many benefits and is one of the most important building blocks in child development. Sports doesn’t only provide physical development it also enables children to learn. Over the last couple of years we have seen an ever-increasing gap between how much physical activity a child get and how much it actually needs. There are numerous reasons to why the gap is widening so fast, yet the effects on the physical and mental development of our children remain the same, are long-lasting and influence the future of each child and our society.
With the help of a specialist in pediatrics and a child psychologists we have developed three exercise programs for children. One programme focusses on the development and coaching of talents, while the other program aims on closing the gap in physically and/or mentally underdeveloped children by monitoring and improving behaviour, specific physical training and parental coaching.
The next big thing in personal training is nutrition coaching. Most people simply don’t ask for specific exercise programmes when they call us. What 99% of clients want is change. They want us to change their body from its current state to their version of the “perfect body”. Exercise is a crucial component of body transformation – but exercise alone isn´t enough. To create impressive results, you need to help manage your clients’ exercise when they’re with you and their lives when they’re not with you. In fact, the real world application of habit-based nutrition is the “missing piece” in the body transformation puzzle.
At Active-8 we have the right tools and education, to deliver that change… for every single person who starts with us.

Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage is a type of Swedish massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Some sports massage movements use trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion.Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.
Not only atheletes benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is a medically indicated therapy for people with chronic injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion/immobility.
