Exergaming is an essential component to an active and healthy lifestyle. It is designed to engage kids and adults from the very beginning while keeping them mentally and physically focused. The act of motion, or physically playing, is the foundation of what our bodies need. Studies show active gaming provides improvement in three key areas: Health, Academics, and Social Behavior.
We are dedicated to improving fitness, academic study and student behavior in after-school programs and YMCA Community programs by using the world’s top tested and proven Exergaming products. Exergaming is a positive addendum to any good physical fitness program that is looking to motivate kids on a more natural and exciting level.
