OT Fitness Educational Service
OT Fitness Educational Service

OT Fitness programs are flexible in handling your space, timetabling, or supervision needs. We are able to assist or train basic physical motor skills integral to other sports (running, jumping, throwing, balancing, upper and lower body strength, agility, power and co-ordination)

OT Fitness has been doing so in schools and community centres since 2004. Our goal is simple – to provide programs that promote fitness to children and teens. Our activities are safe, fun, educational, challenging yet non-threatening and give every student the opportunity to participate to the best of their own ability OT Fitness activities give students opportunities to develop fundamental movement skills, at their own level. The activities are fun and enjoyable, and help students develop positive attitudes towards fitness.

Learning fundamental movement skills and applying movement concepts and principles helps students increase their comfort, confidence, competence, and proficiency with movement, thereby increasing their rates of overall physical activity and improving their health. When fun and enjoyment are part of skill development and physical activity, students are more likely to develop positive attitudes towards lifelong healthy, active living.
