Finding Balance: How a Family-Friendly Wellness Space Benefits Bastrop Parents

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, finding the perfect balance between staying active, tending to our wellness, and spending quality time with our families can be quite a challenge. For Bastrop parents, the Bastrop Fitness Project offers an innovative solution that not only simplifies the process but also enhances the overall well-being of families. In this article, we'll explore how a family-friendly wellness space like the Bastrop Fitness Project is making a positive impact on the lives of Bastrop parents, and why it's becoming an essential part of the community.

Strive Strength and Conditioning Youth Classes

Strive already offers a generous schedule of classes for adult members, but the benefits of physical activity are not limited to the grown population; they're equally important for children. Strive Strength and Conditioning recognizes this and offers youth classes that cater to the fitness needs of children. These classes teach kids between the ages of 5 and 10 how to take care of their bodies while having fun.

With separate classes for teenagers between the ages of 11 and 15, all students learn the basics of proper movement at the appropriate dosage for their stage of development. What's even more exciting is the opportunity for active parents and children to share the same wellness space, which fosters family bonding, encourages positive lifetime habits, builds teamwork, and provides an opportunity for mutual encouragement and success.

Wild Child - Childcare and Fun for Kids

For many parents, attending fitness classes can be a logistical puzzle. The challenge of finding childcare while they work on their fitness goals can often be a significant barrier. This is where Wild Child, a unique offering at Bastrop Fitness Project, steps in to provide a solution.

WildChild offers childcare services during (and outside of!) fitness class hours, ensuring that parents can pursue their wellness journey without any worries. What sets Wild Child apart is its fantastic 2-story play structure, providing a dynamic and engaging environment for kids while their parents are working out, but it doesn't stop there. The dedicated Play Coaches at Wild Child are caring and attentive, ensuring that the children are not only safe but also having a great time.

The convenience of childcare at Wild Child is a game-changer for many parents in the Bastrop community, who might otherwise find it difficult to attend classes. It's not just about providing a service; it's about fostering a sense of community and belonging.

A Relaxing Break for Parents

While parents focus on their fitness routines and their children enjoy their activities, Bastrop Fitness Project also ensures that parents have the opportunity to relax and recharge. The wellness space offers a range of amenities, including amazing on-site massage therapist services, a phenomenal chiropractor, and pilates classes. Whether it's stress management while your child is participating in a positive activity or relief from muscle soreness and strain, parents can take advantage of these services to enhance their own well-being.

In addition, the Bastrop Cafe is the perfect place to unwind with a cup of coffee or a smoothie, making the wellness journey a holistic experience for the entire family.

The Importance of Physical Activity for Kids and Adults

It's no secret that physical activity is crucial for both children and adults. According to guidelines, children between the ages of 6 and 17 should engage in at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity each day. They should also participate in muscle-building and bone-strengthening activities at least three days a week.

Surprisingly, a significant portion of adults do not meet the recommended global physical activity levels, and more than 80% of the world's teenagers also fall short in this regard, according to a study published by the World Health Organization in The Lancet Child and Adolescent Health journal. Another startling statistic, is that children with one overweight parent are twice as likely to be overweight themselves, and three times as likely to be overweight if both parents are. 

The Bastrop Fitness Project addresses these challenges by offering a comprehensive wellness space that not only encourages physical activity but also makes it convenient for parents to prioritize their fitness routines while their children are engaged in fun and educational activities.

The Bastrop Fitness Project is putting all its efforts into creating a family-friendly wellness space that is transforming the lives of Bastrop parents. This facility emphasizes the importance of convenience, community, and the well-being of both parents and children. By finding balance through family-oriented wellness initiatives, the Bastrop Fitness Project is helping to create healthier, happier families in the heart of Bastrop and we invite all Bastrop residents to explore the benefits of this family-friendly wellness space and start their journey toward a more active and fulfilling life for themselves and their children.
