Kenston Local Schoolsin Chagrin Falls, OH was posed with the same question.

What is Exergaming? Exergaming is a great toolto motivate people to participate and engage through games. Over the past 12 years Exergame Fitness hasbeen a pioneer in the active gaming market due to our exceptional technicalunderstanding, our ability to communicate in a non-technical way, and ourrelationships with partners with the same vision we have of keeping the currentgeneration and future generations healthy through activity, exercise, andnutrition. “When Jeff Gowdy, PEP Grant facilitator first contacted us we wereelated to see his enthusiasm for interactive gaming.A New Approach to Fitness andWellness.
“Icouldn’t be happier with our “exergaming” equipment purchased from Exergame Fitness! Children of all ages within the Kenston Local School District enjoy this fun, challenging way ofexercising, which many have never experienced in a school setting. It is especially exciting to see our younger students afterthey have used our Lightspace Floor or Railyard Fitness: rosey cheeked andsmiling! Exergame Fitness has allowed us to engage students in the PhysicalEducation setting that may have been previously “turned off” tophysical activity,” Jeff Gowdy, PEP Grant Facilitator.
