Choosing the Right Gym!

When it comes to making fitness a routine an undesirable gym can easily prevent your willingness to go and workout.  A gym should meet all your expectations, not the other way around.  Use this guideline to determine if your gym is right for you and how to choose the perfect facility.

 

LOCATION

A 30 minute commute for a 45 minute workout does not sound like a plan for success.  Look at gyms that are closer to work or home so that you are more driven to go.  Don’t let burden of driving influence your willingness to work out.

North Crawford School District Gets Their Group Dance Class On

North Crawford School District in Wisconsin gets students moving in physical education classes with Exergaming.  Exergaming, or interactive gaming as some would call it, is technology, gamification, and fitness combined.   It is a better way to educate the importance of fitness because it makes the fitness experience fun, and keeps children engaged.  They have been playing videogames all their life, so shifting sedentary screen time into active game play, and reinforcing that within schools teaches the importance of activity and movement in health and wellness.
