A few years ago we installed a Youth X Room at the Countryside YMCA, the biggest YMCA location in the United States. (See: Exergame Locations: Countryside YMCA). Since the installation, they have had a great deal of interest and success with members use of the room. The youth and kids at the Countryside YMCA wasted no time trying out the equipment and giving us & the staff plenty of positive feedback!
Just like most Youth X rooms, these kids won’t even process that they are exercising because of how much fun they are having. Providing kids with a safe and fun area to be active, while parents/guardians workout is essential for any health club/fitness facility. The room is also featured right in the front of the building, right past the lobby. So with its huge glass windows, everyone who enters can see the equipment and kids in action. This is ideal for aesthetic purposes and even more importantly, an easy way for a parent to check on their children who are in the Exergaming room!
Take a look at some photos below of the room and notice how the layout, colors, lights, and banners promote an interactive and exciting environment. You can also view the full photo gallery here. This is one of the best looking Youth X spaces we have had the honor of putting together!
This Exergaming space is complete with the following set of products:
- T-Wall 64
- Fit Interactive 3-Kick
- Fit Interactive Heavy Ball
- CardioWall Compact Duo
- Active Floor Markings
This product mix is an excellent example of how effective an Exergaming space can be, with children or people of any age.
