Hudson Park Primary School is located in East London, in the Eastern Cape. The school is a well established leader in education and sporting prowess in the region. In recent months, the subject of physical education of learners has come to the forefront of national education departmental discussions, not only to improve the level of sports in our country, but also to provide a more fulfilling and rounded curriculum for the learners.
Hudson Park Primary School are staunch believers in this holistic approach to education and greatly value the physical development of their learners in order for them to get the most they can out of their school years. It is on this note that we at Flexi-Sports SA are proud to announce that Hudson Park Primary School is the first primary school in South Africa to add Flexi-Sports training tools to their sports and physical training programmes.
The Flexi-Bar uses vibration training to create muscle tone and strength. As you swing a Flexi-Bar, vibrations passes through your body. These signals tell the muscles they are being pushed away from their centre and they must automatically contract to bring themselves back. The deep core muscles are involuntary (which means you can’t control them), thus they are notoriously difficult to target and strengthen effectively. This is why 80% of the population suffers from back pain at some stage of their lives. Hudson Park has joined the likes of some of the world’s top sporting teams such as Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Newcastle FC, and a host of Olympic gold medallists in choosing Flexi-Sports intelligent training tools to add to their existing sports-specific programme.
The Flexi-Bar is a great tool for introducing the concepts of core conditioning and dynamic torso stability to children as well as being an entetaining and stress relieving way to exercise. The Flexi-Bar is a proven therapy for mending and preventing back pain, therefore training with the bars will result in strong healthy backs and better circulation for the learners, and this will lead to more effective working.
