DNS Fit Kids is a DNS exercise program for the kids older than 3 years of age. It can be utilized as part of:
- Sport preparation
- Training of Ideal Movement Quality
- Rehabilitation Integration
There are specific sets of exercises and variations utilizing names of animals which will address children’s imaginations and help them with the awareness and feel of movement quality. With the specific DNS exercises we teach the the children to feel their body. This body awareness will help them to identify if the position or motion is done with efficiency = self-control. The tools and knowledge you will receive in this course work will enhance your work with children individually or in groups.
The course work will also provide prepared Exercise journals. Every child will have this journal at home and exercise together with photos, description of positions and lecturers comments – it is individual Exercise journal!

Maggie Rintala, DNSET
Maggie began her working life as a professional dancer. Being active came naturally to her for a long time and led to her work as a personal trainer.
After her second child she developed chronic pain and was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. The years of living with chronic pain, disease and depression gave Maggie a deep understanding of how to be fit for her life. Maggie coaches people to start where they are so they can move where they choose to go.
You can live a life of purpose in a body you love with fitness that feels good in all you think and do.
