Rolling Meadows IL, 07/02/10 – Illinois based company Exergame Fitness debut’s “THE VAULT”, an interactive kids fitness experience that combines game play, exercise & activity monitoring for YMCA’s across the nation.
Exergaming combines physical activity while playing fun and engaging video games. Interactive fitness products are loaded into a cosmetically themed room that resembles a video arcade. THE VAULT rooms come equipped with activity monitoring hardware and software which allow YMCA’s to get activity level feedback for their members. Medical based programming is offered for all VAULT rooms which are effective in educating kids to take care of their mind and body.
This year’s 2010 YMCA General Assembly will be held in Salt Lake City on July 8th – 10th. The event is held once every three years and brings some of the most powerful and influential people in the non-profit arena. Over the course of three days, YMCA’s from all over the nation will have the chance to see a live demonstration of the VAULT room complete with Humana’s “Horsepower Challenge” as it tracks activity level. Exergame Fitness will be providing insight and live demonstrations of the most advanced Exergaming products the world has to offer.
A replication of the Exergame Fitness VAULT room will be on display with products such as Lightspace Play Floor & Play Wall, The Makoto Sports Arena, Gamercize Interactive Game Play Systems, Humana’s Horsepower Challenge & the world’s top wireless dance and step system called iDANCE! If you haven’t experienced a room full of Exergaming products at your YMCA, now is the perfect time to see it in action.
“The YMCA’s have been one of our top clients since we started providing interactive fitness solutions back in early 2004” says Tommy Seilheimer, Vice President of Exergame Fitness. The YMCA’s have the exact community model we look for when implementing a “full room concept”. They are leaders when it comes to implementing fitness camps for members, which makes the VAULT rooms exciting and rewarding for member retention and new member sign-ups.
Our VAULT rooms are a sustainable solution for keeping kids, adults and seniors in the community excited about become physically active at the Y. Our full room concept can easily fit in an existing racquetball court or even a smaller room at the YMCA that can use some excitement.
With the lingering obesity epidemic that is sweeping our nation, it is imperative that we start to change the culture of how we keep our communities healthy. Exergaming integrated properly generates a “gate-way effect” which distinguishes a clear point of entry into traditional fitness that we have seen year after year.
We would like everyone who is attending the 2010 YMCA General Assembly event to please stop by BOOTH # 122. We will also be giving away prizes including a 32” LCD TV, Flip Camera, and an iPod Nano. T-shirts & pre-loaded goodie bags will be available as a first come first serve basis for all who attend. We look forward to showcasing the world’s top Exergaming products this year and look forward to another successful YMCA show!
We know not all of the YMCA’s around the country can attend this event, so this year we decided to broadcast LIVE for 3 days on our official website www.exergamefitness.com bringing the VAULT room to your facility via the internet. A live question and answers feature with our consultants will be available for the duration of the show as well as an audio stream so you can hear all the excitement the VAULT room brings to the event. The LIVE feed will be hosted on the front page of our website so stay tuned for more details!”
