Growing Complete Fitness
At Wild South Youth we do whats best for kids.
We are proud to be New Zealand's ONLY The Brand X Method Training Center, one that focuses on developing physical literacy so that all kids have the resources to arrive at the right movement solutions, at the right times, throughout their entire lives.
Formal exercise is certainly part of our programming, but it is just one expression of physical literacy. Just one way to provide youth with opportunities to explore movement solutions.
to improve the quality of life for all our Community, this includes our goal is to help children become the best possible version of themselves. We are committed to teaching children to become successful leaders while also promoting the importance of health and fitness in a safe and positive learning environment.
All of our Youth Programs aim to make fitness FUN. In addition to learning new skills, you will notice your child makes better food choices, has greater confidence in themselves and their abilities, is more focused in school, transitions to new sports more easily, and can help reduce the risk of sport-related injury.
We offer a range of programs that cater for all ages and abilities, from our Wild South Kids (5-9 years old) and Wild South Junior (10-13 years old) classes to our Wild South Teens (14-17 years old) classes.
Our Youth Programs utilise movements and activities that kids naturally enjoy while providing an environment that is safe, fun and energetic. Our experienced and trained coaches use a wide range and combination of skill practice, workouts and games, and progress to strength and conditioning.
