Kidz Fitness Lid. Is an Irish run company that has been set up for a number of reasons. For the last couple of years we have watched adventure sports in Ireland grow in popularity at an enormous rate, with the number of adults participating increasing year on year. What we also noticed was that there was no-one catering for children to the same extent.
We strongly believe that by introducing sport, fitness, individual/team challenges to a child at a young age, it not only produces a happier, healthier child, who has a positive outlet of energy, it also teaches them to be part of a team, creates friendships and teaches them how great it feels to physically challenge yourself . In addition to this it also increases the chance of creating a fitter healthier adult in their future lives. Statistics at present are worrying; obesity in Ireland is at an all time critical high, projections for the future is predicting that Ireland will be the most overweight country in Europe by 2030. The sad part about this situation is that it is completely avoidable.
In response to this, Kidz Fitness was initially set up to encourage children to become more active but due to high demand from the big kids after our first two events Mini Muckers evolved into a family fun event. Where else can adults and kids alike race each other, push each other around in the mud and create amazing memories???
We know from participating in any form of adventure sports, that they are difficult and challenging but by completing one they give you a sense of achievement, success, confidence and the feeling of crossing the finish line with your team mates or solo is a fantastic feeling. You feel fitter than you ever have before due to the training prior to the event, you eat better to fuel your body and your natural reaction is to avoid “junk food”, you sleep better and you can handle everyday stress better as a result of exercise. For us there is no doubt that participating in any form of sport enhances your life.
Due to the nature of the sport there is always a risk of injury as a result of uneven ground and the possibility of falling. At Mini Muckers events, we assure you that every measure is taken to optimise the children’s safety. The obstacles are created specifically for the children, the environment in which the children are racing in has been checked thoroughly and the route itself is created with your child’s safety in mind.
At the end of the day we want all our Mini Muckers to have a great, challenging, muddy day in a safe environment and that they leave the event excited to do it all again.
