We are hearing more and more from Boys & Girls Clubs of America the need to turn their underutilized spaces into active areas that support healthier lifestyle goals. Many clubs might have outdated weight rooms that are not only absent of use, but can also be unsafe for a variety of age levels.
This is the exact scenario we had with the Boys & Girls Club of Lower Naugatuck Valley. Hear about the impact on the club, and also see ways in which exergaming can be used to breathe new life into such spaces:
- Interactive Workouts: Transform the underutilized space into an interactive fitness zone where users can engage in exergaming activities. This can include virtual fitness classes, interactive cardio exercises, and competitive games that promote physical activity.
- Recreation Rooms: Repurpose underutilized recreation or common areas into exergaming zones for students. This not only encourages physical activity but also provides a fun and engaging way for students to socialize.
- Youth Engagement: Transform underused spaces in community centers into exergaming areas for youth. This can include interactive dance games, virtual sports, and fitness challenges to attract and engage young members of the community.
In each case, the key is to identify the specific needs and preferences of the target audience and tailor the exergaming setup accordingly. Contact us to learn more!
