Our aim is to improve the fundamental movement skills of all children and in doing so provide for them a good foundation for an active and healthy life. We support getting kids active and healthy by engaging them through movement, fitness and fun interaction. We believe that children should be encouraged to do physical activity every day and that having a fun and inclusive environment is the best method of encouraging this.
We teach “Movement” we work with a range of different age groups - from young Children to elite athletes and everyone in between! We teach movement after Injury or surgery, we teach Kids how to move more efficiently and athletes how to move faster! Dynamic Movement Skills (DMS) is a product of The Running School. We teach adults and children efficient and effective running biomechanics, balance and help them to develop speed through our unique coaching protocols.
