I started the Hawk Fitness Academy to improve the health of children. Our program is specially designed to improve strength and balance along with heart health. Traditional exercise programs for children focus on heart health and playing sports. What makes our program unique is that we focus on improving strength and balance along with heart health. Strength and balance is important for functionality as we age. Your child will also learn exercise skills that can be performed as adults in any recreational center or gym.
