With one in every four Australian children either overweight or obese the time has come to get kids moving and that’s precisely what Skip2Beat plans on doing with the 4Kids program.
Skip2Beat is a locally-devised fitness revelation emerging as a convenient and fun antidote to unhealthy levels of childhood inactivity, according to Skip2Beat.
“Today’s kids can be a little reluctant to put down their devices or step away from the computer in favour of a skipping rope. But once you present them with a fun and inspired program, easy-to-follow prompts and dial-up some music they can relate to, they really get into it,” Skip2Beat said.
“We’ve been holding clinics with some of the local councils and have been overwhelmed by the response of the kids.
“The same things that made skipping a childhood favourite half a century ago are the same things that make it popular today – it’s fun, it doesn’t feel like exercise, but it’s one of most efficient and effective ways to get into shape quickly,”
A new take on an old favourite, Skip2Beat is a new at-home and in-gym fitness program that combines fun, function and funky new beats to strip fat fast, get the blood pumping and tone from head to toe.
Health benefits include increased bone density, cardio-vascular fitness, co-ordination and lean muscle to fuel the metabolism long-term.
Skip2Beat said the start of the school year was a great time to establish good habits by scheduling family fitness sessions into the week.
“It’s very easy to say you’re too busy to exercise. We’re all busy. But it’s about making health and fitness a priority. No one HAS the time, you need to MAKE the time,” he said.
“With Skip2Beat, there’s no excuses. Mum, Dad, the kids can all do it from the comfort of their home when ever suits best. It takes just 20 minutes and that’s one of the true beauties of skipping – you get more work done in less time.
“On top of that, it’s inexpensive – a pair of decent shoes, the Skip2Beat program, a rope and you’re away. It suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness – anyone can do it!”
