I received a Hoopersize kit for review. All thoughts are my own.
My kids are usually balls of energy. I do not know if that is just how they are or if it because we are always on the go, so when we are home and not doing anything, they just do not know what to do with all the energy and start to bounce off the walls.
We recently received a Hoopersize kit, from KidTribe, for the kids. Hoopersize is the first fitness kit that is designed for kids and families together to keep everyone active. The kit comes with a hoop, that you assemble by clicking the pieces together. The hoop is larger than a traditional hoop and is also thicker. It is built to make hooping easier and that way kids can do it longer. The kit also comes with DVDs that teach kids how to hoop, and offers 12 game games to make getting up and hooping something kids WANT to do. There is also a CD with fun music for kids to get up and get their heart pumping to.
It was very easy for us to put the hoop together and it did not take long for the kids to have the hoop in their hands to play with it. Our problem, my living room is pretty tiny, and the kids picked up their hoop, started to twist and turn, and knocked things over. So we were not able to use the hoop in the house.
But we were able to take it outside and use it after watching the DVD to see the games that there were to learn. While Serenity liked the games, she was much more interested in just hooping. She did enjoy listening to the music and challenging herself to beat a song or see if she can hoop for the whole CD. She almost made the whole CD too. She was pretty winded by the time she was done. And she shamed me. Even with the bigger, wider, heavier hoop, I still could not get my hips to move right. How on earth did I use to do that as a kid?
With obesity on the rise it is extremely important that kids get up and get moving. But, kids want to sit in front of the TV and play video games. It takes something fun to get them interested. And Hoopersize is a great start. As a family, they can challenge each other see who can go longer. They can see who can last for the song. And everyone will enjoy the games.
Check out KidTribe and Hoopersize to the music for kids to hoop to, and some of the other great exercise programs that have to offer.
