Functional movement is not exclusive to adults; observe a child at play and you will see every possible movement a body can be called upon to facilitate, and some movements that do not seem possible. This is the primary reason the Railyard is becoming the standard by which all exercise products in the physical education market are gaged. Not only does the Railyard provide a platform for truly functional fitness, it is fun! Ask any physical educator or early childhood academic and they will tell you, if the program is not fun, children will not be engaged, and if they are not engaged, the efforts will be fruitless.

Nothing is better for developing the global physical skills a child needs to play sports. Develop strength, agility, balance, coordination, endurance, speed, power, flexibility, joint stability and improve posture in a playful, non competitive program that will give your children a positive attitude towards exercise and prepare them for a lifetime of health.

We train patterns, not parts. Movement on the Railyard replicates the wide array of natural movements caused by our environment are all brought to being through patterns, not by parts. The parts of the body and the structure of the body submit themselves to the will of the pattern.

Patterns that exploit opportunities to deal with force result in stronger parts. Patterns that rely on quick reaction time create parts that respond in an instant. Patterns that create flexibility yield parts that are extensible. In all of the situations that are real in life, we develop better patterns, and the parts respond.

The essence of ‘functional exercise’ is that the exercise carries over into numerous activities—activities that create fundamental foundations, which support more specific skills.
Nothing is more gratifying than to witness what is seen on this video. The obvious physical benefit these children are receiving from the time they are spending on the Railyard is exceptional. The children are actually enjoying exercising, and this is going to prepare them for a lifetime of positive exercise experiences.
