When a family goes on vacation – you always try and make sure there are things for the children to do. To some, whether or not a hotel or resort offers adequate accommodations for this, such as day care centers and rec rooms, it can be the deciding factor to stay or not. The PGA National Resort & Spa located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida knows this like any other successful resort. The CardioWall Compact Duo is the newest addition to their “Cubs Club”, their childcare center/activity room, more information on this room can be found here.
The CardioWall Compact Duo is a perfect interactive single and multiplayer game for kids. Not only does it keep kids occupied and having fun, but they are also getting exercise at the same time. Adults can play it too, in fact Exergame Fitness has an entire exercise routine built around it. Some information from the CardioWall Compact Duo product page:
“CardioWall challenges users to balance, stretch, squat, reach, and think as they must follow and hit the different patterns of lighted pads. The cardiowall is a highly durable product that can be used with soft weights, balls, hands, or boxing gloves. This product is scientifically proven to provide cardio-workouts that can form the basis of sports training routines or physical rehabilitation programs.”
Even a recent article posted by Fitness-Gaming highlights how effective the CardioWall Compact Duo (or any CardioWall model) can help against childhood obesity. From the article:
“The Exeter study indicates that the CardioWall may indeed be a valuable tool for fighting inactive lifestyles and motivating children to increase habitual activity levels.”
The Cubs Club will get a lot of use out of these machines. They have the newest gaming systems available to play and even arts & crafts nights named – “Kids Night Out”, but the PGA Resort knew not to overthink what kids reall need: activity and exercise. Along with their normal summer/seasonal programs for kids such as their golf camps & lessons, the CardioWall Compact Duo will make a big difference for the time spent by the children at the resort.
As with every installation we do, we wish the PGA National Resort & Spa the best with their new equipment. We hope that the children will get a lot of use out of it, and at least be a little bit more inspired to be active especially at a PGA location. Below is the previously mentioned workout routine specifically for the CardioWall Compact Duo.
