Gecko kids fitness program launches at Goldfields Oasis
The Goldfields Oasis Recreation Centre is set to launch Gecko specialised children's fitness program running twice a week from 24th April.
Prior to the launch the Kalgoorlie-Boulder facility will be holding a free open day to introduce Gecko programs on Sunday 22nd April.
Described by parents as "a kids exercise paradise" full of specific age appropriate equipment, running tracks, circuits, obstacle courses, colours and music - Gecko Kids Fitness programs create an activity environment that children see as their own.
Determined to build a fitter future for children, Gecko opened Australia's first 'kids only' fitness centre in 2006. By end of last it was operating 33 licences.
Gecko programs change every week and are age appropriate, fully supervised and designed for children of all abilities - from 'lounge lizards' just wanting to get active and try something new to sports conditioning for youth athletes.
The coaches, as they are called, are young, athletic role models helping children build speed, skill, strength and stamina through engaging circuits, indoor boot camp, water fights, team challenges, obstacle courses and games.
For licencees, Gecko provides equipment kit, merchandise, training, weekly video programs, full branding rights, marketing templates and calendars, retention strategies and ongoing webinars and support allowing clubs to make up to $50,000 profit from their Gecko license.
Owner Sam Wood recently told Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper that Gecko centres were based on fun, stating "we're not about fat kids, we're not about elite athletes - we're about the whole spectrum.
"There are no mirrors, weights or treadmills - it's just a fun place for kids to come and get fit."
The Goldfields Oasis Recreation Centre is a multi-purpose sports and aquatic complex located in the heart of the Golden Outback; the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Western Australia. The complex was opened in March 1999 and is an important recreation hub for the community.
