This splits class is only limited by one’s imagination. Parents and young people should work together to cheer each other on and help each other where they can. 

Safety and proper warm up is key to doing splits.
1. Always warm up by doing jumping jacks, skipping or any light activity to ensure all muscles are warmed up prior to class. 
2. Never just jump right in to the splits. Even if it seems easy, students could cause long term injures to their tendons, joints and muscles. 
3. Always wear appropriate training gear e.g. socks, stretchy pants and a top that doesn’t bunch up or get catch on any part of the body. 
4. We recommend that if you have prior injuries or medical conditions not to do this course. 
5. Never do splits along if you have no experience or prior training. 
6. Splits won’t happen in a day so take your time, come to class, practice with a friend or fitness partner and if you are under 18 get your parents to join in so they can see and hear how they progressions work. 


From my experience collaborative splits training is best practice. The more encouragement and support each person offers the more fun, exciting and determination everyone will be to succeed.
