A new study has revealed that 30% of children spend less than an hour a week exercising, yet experts recommend that kids should be active for at least an hour every day. - The Sports and Hobbies Website has revealed the top ways to keep kids active and free from boredom.

Following the revelation of recent figures that have shown only 13% of kids do the recommended amount of exercise a week, has offered parents some key advice for keeping their children active.

With games consoles and televisions at the top of many children’s wish lists, it can be hard for parents to persuade their youngsters to get out and about. One of the best ways to encourage children to take an interest in a sport or hobby that will keep them active is to source out clubs and groups in the local area that they might be interested in.

There are many organisations registered on that are suitable for young people and joining up could both be beneficial for their health and their social life, as they allow kids to stay fit and make friends at the same time.

For children who are fans of TV shows such as X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, dance clubs and singing groups are a brilliant way of keeping them active and entertained, whilst those who prefer watching Beckham on the box would benefit from signing up to the local football club.

Some children may lose interest in conventional clubs like football teams and dance lesions, but Clubbz has listings for alternative and exciting clubs that are ideal ways to keep kids fit and enable them to learn life skills.

Searches for Air Cadets, Sea Cadets, Scouts and Girls Brigade are on the rise, suggesting that there has been an increase in interest for exciting and different groups. These are the kinds of clubs that kids can really benefit from in the practical sense.

Speaking about the importance of keeping kids active, Rob Yorke Co-Founder said;

“I was shocked to see from the latest stats that 20% of people think exercise is a chore that is only for overweight people. Regular exercise and activity should be a vital part of any child’s lifestyle, so finding a club that kids are enthusiastic about is a real bonus.”

He continued; “One of the best ways to make exercise part of their routine is to sign them up to a club based around a hobby they enjoy. aims to help people find a variety of groups in their local area, so it’s a great starting point for anyone looking to get their kids active.”
