Pocket Rocket Sports is amazing! Coach Neil is the coach of all coaches; vibrant, enthusiastic, entertaining - the kids think he's hilarious and love every sport he teaches them. So, if the sound of children giggling their butts off whilst being run ragged by someone else, appeals to you, Pocket Rocket Sports is for you!
Neil's boundless enthusiasm is second to none, I have never seen anything like it before. I thought my son was keen, Neil is a whole different ball game. He never stops, he is constantly encouraging and friendly and has the kids in stitches for most of their lesson. He remembers every child's name from the get go and has a manner that makes every child eager to learn (and more importantly, follow instructions).
Basket ball, just one of the nine sports the kids can try
Rotating through NINE different sports, each on a monthly basis, kids get to have a go at everything and Neil manages to keep each lesson jammed packed with healthy, outdoor fun. From chasing hoops to playing poison ball, donning their shin pads in soccer and hockey and learning to field and bat, they can even get a bib on for athletics and run relay races, high jump, long jump and hurdles.
He teaches them great sportsmanship as well, they learn the importance of winning and losing and how well you play the game. There's a sports award at the end of each lesson which is a fabulous way for the kids to share in one person's glory and learn that one can't win all the time. There are even medals during athletics, and a big finish line to run through.
The 9 different sports are - Rugby, AFL, Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, Cricket, Tennis, Softball, and Athletics. A new sport starts each month so the kids are constantly engaged and enthused by learning something new and getting to have a go.
Classes run from Monday to Thursday from 8:30 am to 11am and there's a half hour time slot for your child's age group each day. Classes are on the foreshore at Lota Park and also at the Rochedale Estates. Spaces are limited to 7 kids in a class and there are some big plans for next year, so enrolling now is a good idea. Time slots are snapped up fast.
With even better news for busy parents juggling routines and life with preschool age children is Neil's established Max Fitness - a mobile personal training outfit designed specifically for Mums and Dads with hectic schedules.
Many parents of young children find the health and fitness part of their own lives takes a dive on the priority scale once the little ones arrive, and there is never enough time to get to a gym. Sure, a run or swim would be great once the kids are in bed, but someone needs to actually be in the house with them, and if you're adding babysitting fees onto gym memberships and pool entries, the cost is climbing higher than your inclination.
Max Fitness comes to your door! Not to the park down the road, or your local Scout hut, but to YOUR PLACE. Imagine the ease and bliss of knowing that while you're inside at 7pm getting the last book read and the kids into bed, Neil is quietly outside in your front drive setting up an entire gym! You can simply walk outside once the kids are down, do your workout, and walk back inside to flop on the sofa - while Neil packs up and heads off. Brilliant.
The convenience is undoubted. Neil brings over 10 years of experience with him and he trains you with the same enthusiasm and encouragement he shows the kids. He's an unstoppable force of nature, bringing the best out of everyone he coaches.
Max Fitness offers an exclusive online service. An app that you are able to download to your smart phone that enables Neil to give you a tailored and individual workout and also track your progress. Max Fitness is able to give you the best results by only doing strength training once a week - this is the part that Neil will set up in your front drive or garage - then he is able to send you other workouts, a swim or a run for example, during the week which you can log through the app. This is perfect for busy Mums and Dads who might be away a lot and cannot commit to a set routine each week.
