The Mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana is to inspire and enable the youth of their communities to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. They support your child on the path to a great future. Their ten Clubs and 11 Kidstop sites (before and after-school childcare program) bring together a staff of highly trained professionals and adult mentors who engage youth, aged K to 18. Now more than ever this Boys & Girls Organization is looking to make an impact on the youth inactivity in their children through the power of interactive fitness and exergame.
One of the most recent Boys & Girls Clubs we have worked with was the Chesteron sight location. Here parents love their Kidstop program because they know their children are in the hands of youth guidance professionals who really care about them. One of the more interesting parts of the Club is their Youth X Exergame Room. The Youth X Room engages kids and teens through their virtual world to get them moving. Using similar concepts of gamification found in video games, kids won’t even realize they are working out.
Here is a great quote from one of the program directors Debbie Spurling, “Just wanted to reach out and let you know how much the kids are continuing to enjoy and exhaust themselves on all the equipment. Summer camps went great and we have TONS of new students for this fall’s after school program.”
This was one of the largest installations in the Boys & Girls Club Organization. Products here include things like the iDANCE, tWall 64, 3 Kick, Heavyball, and Exerbikes. This concept room is customized to fit the new model of social interaction, movement and engagement. It comes fully equipped with items that are not only gamified, but have proven fitness methodology behind them. They are strategically put in place to balance out a fitness program and can be used in circuit style group classes.
