Exercise and physical activity are vital for the physical, mental and social wellbeing of children and adults alike. Currently, less than a quarter of Australian kids are meeting the physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes of movement per day! Physical activity provides children with a wide range of developmental and health benefits. Regular physical activity from a young age increases the likelihood to sustain an active lifestyle as an adult, resulting in better quality of life.

Our Exercise Physiologists use evidence-based practice to empower parents and their children to participate in an active lifestyle. At Eat Speak Learn we enjoy working with parents to develop strategies to make exercise enjoyable and attainable for their families. We create tailored exercise programs to foster social skills and self-confidence, in order to increase a child’s participation in school, community and recreational activities.
