As a homeschooling mom, I am constantly searching out the newest and best curriculum to keep my children on track and excited about learning.  One area in which I find our curriculum usually lacking a bit is in physical education.  It is one area that I often overlook or take for granted- knowing that my children are constantly active, running, climbing, playing, etc.  I have neglected some of the other important aspects of physical education such as balance and coordination.

Aqua Leisure has come up with some great solutions for children- their First Fitness products have taken the hard work out of encouraging children to exercise by making it FUN!!  Their great selection of amazing child directed products gives parents the added support to make sure their children are as healthy as possible.  The products are perfect for those of us who homeschool as well- adding an important dimension to our physical education programs.

From the kids jump rope to the great balance balls, obstacle courses, exercise bicycles and even an elliptical trainer, there truly is something for every child- regardless of fitness level.  Although you cannot put a price on your child’s health, these products are reasonably priced as well and made of super durable material so they will last through multiple children.

 

About Aqua Leisure- First Fitness:

 Today kids are not active!

…and it has become a national epidemic. Children are increasingly spending more time indoors in front of computers, television and video games than ever before… Inactivity is the major reason for the growing rate of obesity among children.

The government along with numerous health professional organizations universally agree that today’s children are not getting enough daily exercise. Studies have shown that the impact of keeping children active is remarkable.

But children, not unlike adults, associate exercise with “work”. But exercise doesn’t have to be “work” – it should be fun!

That’s why Aqua-Leisure is introducing FirstFitness.

Designed to let children play and along the way take their first steps towards a lifetime love of fitness.

FirstFitness keeps it fun so children will want to come back for more!

We recently received the Aqua Leisure First Fitness Balance Battle Combat Fitness Game for my kiddos to try out.  The game teaches balance equilibrium and forms agility skills, plus helps children learn to react and recover in a “battle” situation. It includes 2 soft inflatable battle sticks and 2 inflatable balance pads.  The day it arrived in the mail happened to be a very rainy day which put a bit of a damper on the excitement of it’s arrival.

I opened the box and was very happily surprised with the quality of the pieces and quickly blew up the two battle sticks.  I was a bit disappointed to find that the balance pads needed a bicycle pump to inflate as it did not state that anywhere on the box or in the description, however we quickly found one so it was not a big problem.  Once I assessed the game, I decided it would actually be possible to play in the house without much worry of injury or destruction. 

From the first game my children were hooked.  They both very much enjoyed the challenge of the balance pads and it actually makes the game very fair regardless of the size or skill level of the players.  Balance is the key and often my much smaller and weaker daughter would win over my son simply because her balance is much better.  We have been playing it for a few weeks and it is holding up very well- even from all the abuse my children have given to it.  I have also seen marked improvement in my daughter’s ability to hit a target and in my son’s balance- so it’s not only fun, but it also works!!

    One of my favorite reviews was for the Mastermind board game. I also really liked your Baby Bunch reviews. They have such unique products.
    My daughter is hoping Santa brings a Mrs. Potato Head, and my son would like to get a Leapfrog Digi.
