The Meriden YMCA is very concerned with the rising rate of childhood obesity in Meriden. To address this problem, they have created the PACE (Physical Activity Changes Everything) Program to provide each family with the necessary tools to combat childhood obesity and lead healthy and active lives. When the Meriden YMCA was looking at innovative ways to incorporate kids’ fitness they came to none other than Exergame Fitness!
Exergame Fitness is a company that strives to inspire physical activity through the most cutting-edge active game experience-AND-to provide fun, sustainable solutions to fight childhood obesity.
When implementing Exergaming into their facility they wanted a good combination of some of the very best in the interactive gaming market. Through consultation with Exergame Fitnessthey decided that for their facility Lightspace Play Wall, Gamercize, Exerbike, and a DDR Package would get kids excited about exercising!
The Lightspace Play Wall combines the latest in interactive technology with software-controlled content that will provide hours of fun and exercise for kids and adults of all ages and abilities. The system is capable of storing and running a potentially limitless variety of games and interactive programs that can be used by multiple participants simultaneously. TheLightspace Play Wall creates an engaging experience that will draw young children, teenagers, and adults to activities that will excite and entertain them, all while keeping them active and fit.
Dance games are fun when used with the right equipment. Durability, accuracy, lightweight, and easy handling, are important factors when choosing a dance platform for repeated play and exercise. When the Meriden Y asked what the best platforms we easily settled on the iMPACT Arcade DDR Platforms
Pedal to play! It’s that simple. The all-new Exerbike is a commercial-grade game bike designed to bring competitive fun and stunning Playstation 3 graphics back into kids’ interactive fitness. Using the superior power and technology of the Playstation 3 users can play their favorite racing, boating, motorcycle, and biking games while achieving a great cardio workout without them knowing it.
Last but of course, not least the Gamercize System continues to amaze the YMCA crowd with its technology. Gamercize motivates keeping fit at home. Minimal interaction gives the flexibility to play any game the way it was designed to be played, and the ultimate distraction from physical effort. Choose between the cycle and stepper for endurance training or maximum cardio fitness benefit. Keep exercising to maintain gameplay, stop and you will be prompted to get moving again to continue playing. You will exercise longer and harder when exercise is fun, so take the challenge and enjoy the results with the GZ Pro-Sport by Gamercize.
