Kids Equipment

A Solution to Childhood Obesity!

Childhood obesity can be detrimental to the emotional and physical health of a growing child with enduring consequences into adulthood. This problem continues to grow at an alarming rate and affects children and adolescents of all ages, races, and genders.

“Overweight adolescents have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults.” – U.S. Surgeon General

In an effort to provide a solution to the childhood obesity problem, HOIST® went in search of an answer through extensive research and development as well as advice from experts in youth fitness. The result is an innovative line of children’s fitness conditioning equipment, the HOIST® KL  Youth Fitness Circuit.

 HOIST® 

The HOIST® headquarters is located in a 30,000 square foot facility in San Diego, California, home to the pioneering research,
development and production of superior fitness equipment for over 25 years. With a long history of innovation and quality the
industry has come to expect from HOIST® , our standards have become the very measure of excellence in the realm of strength training equipment worldwide.

The HOIST® KL Youth Fitness Circuit was designed with three major principles of children’s fitness in mind: safety, fun and results !

Safety :

Equipment suited for adults may not be appropriate for the developing body of a child. Adult bodies are able to handle the stress of single joint movements performed on standard exercise equipment. However, these movements place a much greater degree of force on the joints of a child. Designed from the ground up specifically for kids, our KL line focuses on multi-joint movements to effectively and safely spread the exercise compression forces across more than just one isolated joint. Also, the neutral hand grips eliminate shoulder rotation. This significantly reduces the potential chance of injury to developing muscles, joints, and bones, as well as maximizes the compression forces that increase bone density and joint stability in children.

The consideration for safety is not only addressed in the design of the movements, but also in the details incorporated into each piece of equipment. The HOIST® Fitness commitment to safety is addressed in every sleek detail, including the Silent Steel®
safety weight stacks with fully shielded enclosures. The oversized footpads help to guide proper body positioning during exercise movements. Individual placards guide the instructor and child through each step of the workout. Each component is designed and manufactured under strict quality maintenance protocols.

Fun :

Finally, kids will want to work out because it’s fun! The dynamic action and movement of this cutting-edge equipment targets specific muscle groups and encourages children to exercise by simulating the motion of a ride! A physical activity that is both fun and beneficial encourages a child to develop healthy exercise habits. Our purpose is to motivate children to join in activities that promote fitness, growth and a healthy lifestyle. An early change in a child’s lifestyle is an integral step to producing regular fitness and health habits into adulthood.

Results :

Youth can benefit greatly from a regular strength training program. In a well designed program, participants can expect an improvement in bone density as well as tendon and ligament strength. Skeletal muscular strength, joint stability and endurance are also enhanced. The benefits of strength training play an important role in the prevention of injuries. They also help boost athletic performance in a wide range of sports and recreational activities. Resistance training enhances nervous system function and can promote emotional health. Strength training has a positive influence on body composition in children and adolescents and can provide improvements in self-esteem and self-confidence.

“The focus of any weight-training program for children should be on safety and having fun.” – Kenneth H. Cooper
