The Healthy Lifestyles strategy of the Boys & Girls Club of America develops young people’s capacity to live healthfully by educating youth about fitness, nutrition and smart decisions. Their activities focus on instilling positive conflict resolution techniques, engaging in positive behaviors, setting personal goals, and building resistance skills that nurture and strengthen their minds and bodies.
As technology continues to take root in our lives, it is now even expanding to the fitness world. At Exergame we aim to inspire physical activity through the most cutting-edge active game experience. We provide exergame fitness solutions for clubs around the U.S. and internationally.
One of our newest full room interactive fitness gaming centers was installed at the Boys & Girls Club of Northwest Indiana – East Chicago. The Mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana is to inspire and enable the youth of our communities to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. Here they focus on engaging the kids with Fitness Gaming, achieving new personal fitness goals, and provide an experience unlike anything their members have seen before.
