Canandaigua NY – Youth Development. Healthy Living. Social Responsibility. These three ideals are the focus at the Canandaigua Family YMCA. And the addition of Exergame Fitness equipment to the Zone – their interactive fitness room for people of all ages at their club – is a testament to their commitment to these ideas. Exergaming merges technology with gaming while adding a dose of fitness. It’s about creating a space that bridges the gap between kids and the club, forming positive experiences with fitness, and engaging the whole family.
The Canandaigua Family YMCA installed their Exergame Fitness equipment in the Zone in February. The Zone includes: a TWall 64, two sets of Exerbikes, Railyard, and HeavyBall. This Zone is designed particularly for the club’s seven to fourteen year olds meeting them where their interests lie – video games and technology.
As stated on “The Zone” page of the Canandaigua Family YMCA website, the Exergame equipment is great for kids but can also be effective training tools for adults. “Don’t be fooled, the equipment is not only for kids. Adults will be able to use it, with some of your group exercise & personal training staff incorporating the equipment into workouts.” Furthermore, many facilities like the Canandaigua Family YMCA use their Exergame rooms as a way to facilitate new family programming, bringing together their communities for fun family game nights.
