Get Kids Moving!

Live online exercise sessions for kids with Coach Matt!

May 13 Update: As re-openings began across the world in May 2020, we decided to bring these popular free sessions to a close. Thanks to everyone who participated, and for the many great notes you and your kids sent to Coach Matt. Keep moving!
Security and Safety Note: This seminar has a dedicated moderator for continual screening. It uses a waiting area for the moderator to individually interview and invite participants into the meeting. It allows attendees to use cameras but not screen share. Thank you for respecting these security and safety measures.

— Are you struggling to keep your kids focused or entertained during long days at home?

— Do your kids need to expend some energy without wearing you out?

— Could you use a few minutes to yourself while someone else occupies your kids’ attention?

Get them moving!

TPS is pleased to offer a weekly LIVE online exercise class for kids and teens (or anyone else who wants to jump in!). Because we know isolation can be hard, we are holding this class in Zoom so that everyone can see not only the instructor, but also any participants who choose to share their video with the class. We’re in this together!

The classes are taught by Coach Matt Geraghty, a certified personal trainer and strength coach for clients of all ages. As a fitness professional in the industry for over 15 years, Matt Geraghty has the honor of working with a broad spectrum of clients, ranging from those learning to walk again post-stroke, kids with developmental disabilities, and top-achieving athletes. Matt graduated from George Mason University with a B.S. in Exercise Science and has many additional certifications, including Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Functional Movement Specialist, and Training for Warriors Level 2 Certified Coach. Matt was also the U.S. Fitness Top Trainer in 2016, 2017, and 2018, and runner up in 2015 and 2019. In his spare time, Matt loves to play 90s video games, try new foods, and teach the 5th grade class at his church. Matt and his wife live outside Washington DC with their two golden retrievers.
