Everyone loves fun but not too many of us have fun when we exercise. Back when the boomers were kids, there were not any digital activities or cyberspace for the general public. Everyone using electronics was wired to an outlet. Phone lines were sometimes 20 feet long just to get around the house a little. One thing however was very common.
Your doorbell rang several times a day from your friends wanting you to come out and play, and you did, sometimes up to ten hours outside. You ran, jumped, climbed and wrestled for hours. You were having fun and exercising without even knowing it. This kind of almost daily routine occurred from about 5-12 years old.
There were plenty of kids in the neighborhood that were in your age group, enough to have team sports for every block or street. It seemed as though time was flowing slower. Now, its much more complicated to manage your life. You barely have enough time to go to the gym. You do go, but it is not so much fun as it is a necessity.
Your children sometimes get into team sports but practicing for a game is usually not fun. Toddlers and children under 10 may not get the physical activity required to build up stamina and endurance.
Today’s generation of children have a completely different life style. They are first of all being saturated with the digital universe and cyberspace. Most children play video games starting at a very young age. Pre-teens use cell phones, I-phones, Blackberry’s etc. You get the picture. There is basically an inevitable gap that is widening between technology and physical fitness.
Many parents are very busy with today’s hectic world and find it difficult to allow their kids to balance school and technology with outdoor activities. Well, we have a solution, not for everyone but for most families that can be brought right to your yard.
There are easy ways to improve the fitness of your toddlers up to teenagers by getting them involved in productive playground activities in your own home. Parents may not have the time to take their children to a park every day. Schools don’t usually allow the children more than a few minutes to be on their own with physical activities. One of several easy ways to allow your children to get the necessary physical activity, fresh air and some sun, is to get an age appropriate Play System that allows your child to get many important skills, such as coordination and balance, when climbing a rock walls, or upper body strength when pulling oneself up a rope climb or ramp, or moving along monkey bars. You can flip yourself over on a trapeze bar and do pull-ups or spin and swing on a tire swing. Of course, just the act of swinging back and forth on a traditional swing builds leg muscles.
Another great alternative is now becoming a mainstream activity is jumping on trampolines. Superior Play Systems carries 12 of the safest and most useful trampolines on the market. Believe me when I say, you adults should spend ten minutes in a trampoline. It’s like and hour work out in the gym and great fun for the whole family from. Trampolines are great for all ages and have many additional activities like agility games, basketball attachments and sleep over tents.
