TuffStuff KDS-71LP Selectorized Leg Press for Kids - The Youth Fitness Leg Press by TuffStuff is designed specifically to introduce children to weight training for the leg musculature in a fun and safe way. While squats, even with just bodyweight, are a great way to tone and strengthen the quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes, they are also difficult to teach and many children lack the coordination to do them correctly. This well designed leg press for kids allows youngsters to train the same muscles in a seated position that is much easier to learn.
In our increasingly sedentary society, many children spend hours looking at computer screens but do not exercise adequately through play. The health benefits of beginning brief weight training programs early are well documented. These benefits include assisting with weight loss, reducing the likelihood of developing diabetes, improving immune system function, and relieving stress. Children involved in youth sports who engage in light weight training will also be in better shape than their non-training peers and may be less likely to suffer injuries on the field or court.
The TuffStuff Kids Stuff line of strength equipment is made to cater to the unique needs of 8-13 year olds. Quick adjust seats and back pads, along with color-coded weight stacks makes the Kids Stuff line of strength equipment the perfect choice for youth recreation programs. Transport wheels and quick adjustments give teachers and supervisors the ability to easily change and customize circuit routines while traditional movements and light starting weights create a fun and motivating environment to help build a child's self esteem and sense of accomplishment.
