The technological innovations in the last twenty years have been astounding. They have made our lives simpler, safer and more entertaining, but one thing they have not done is made our children healthier. Kids ‘N Shape childrens fitness play can help by making exercise fun.
Children have so many options for entertainment today that do not involve running, jumping, playing sports or just moving their bodies. Children can watch shows on demand, play on devices or surf the internet instead of doing the things kids used to do naturally. It seems odd to tell a child to exercise. Children should naturally exercise through play, but our modern lifestyles have made childrens fitness play less common than it should be.
According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch article, “Healthy Kids: Fitness in Children,” by Dr. Melissa Rickerson,
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one in three American children and adolescents is overweight or obese.
Extra weight puts these children at higher risk for other serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol – things children should not need to worry about.
Weight gain is caused by taking in more calories than you are burning with physical activity.”
We all want to see our children healthier, but we need to create a lifelong love of fitness for our children, not rules and regulations for exercise that leave kids frustrated and bored. Help your children learn the lesson that exercising is fun, by exposing them to Kids ‘N Shape childrens fitness play.
Take your children to a fitness play center where they can run through obstacle courses, jump on bounce houses, compete with friends and just have a ridiculously fun time moving their bodies and working up a sweat. Kids ‘N Shape childrens fitness play will not feel like exercise to them but will be a great time they cannot wait to repeat.
