Los Angeles, CA, September 29, 2015 – Having “fun” is serious business at Lionheart Fitness Kids. The program, a nutrition and life lessons program for kids 2-5 years old, began with just seven children and now has reached more than 50,000 kids since it began in 2008. Lionheart Kids is currently operating in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County, San Diego, Chicago and Denver and is available to children through schools, corporations and park programs.
The program is simple. It was developed by experts in the fields of nutrition, child development and physical education, with two criteria to uphold:
The end result: Healthy self-esteem, positive thinking, leadership, courage, responsibility, integrity, good sportsmanship, motor skills and social skills.
“Our program is authentic, our coaches are accountable and we always put the children first,” states Coach John. “A Lionheart coach understands that all children have greatness inside of them. It is our job to find that greatness, nurture it and inspire every child to feel special.”
Lionheart Fitness Kids founder, John “Coach John” Skoryna has dedicated his life to teaching children life skills through fitness and nutrition and considers it an honor to be a role model for them. Skoryna is a lifelong athlete, and notably he coached a competitive hockey team in San Diego that won a national championship title and a bronze medal in the Jr. Olympics. He taught his teams the techniques he learned specific to visualization and the power of positive thinking – and now children at Lionheart Fitness Kids also benefit from his methods.
Later this fall, Lionheart Fitness Kids will launch a special certificate program to train more coaches to handle their nationwide expansion.
NBA Hall of Famer, Scottie Pippen agrees. “Some of the best lessons I have learned were through great coaches. They were Life Lessons – not just game strategies or tactics. Lionheart Fitness Kids provides these very same valuable moments and memories, and from some of the most inspiring coaches I have ever met,” says Pippen.
