Try fitBoost online now. Find an area with enough space for everyone to move around comfortably. Pull up the fitBoost Activity on any device, and push “Let’s Go!” You’ll automatically get a randomized set of three activities that will get your body moving. First, you’ll see a warm-up activity like taking a one-minute dance break. Second, you’ll get a movement activity to increase heart rate with instructions for proper form and technique. Lastly, you’ll do an activity to cool your body down and lower your heart rate. Something like a simple stretch, with instructions for proper technique. You even have the option to use a timer, or turn it off and move at your own pace.
Why is fitBoost helpful? According to Dr. Kristen Ford, an expert in physical education and health at Concordia College, taking time out of your day to get your body moving will increase your heart rate and blood flow. This movement encourages more oxygen to travel to the brain and causes you to become more alert and focused. Taking a 10-15 minute break every hour will result in increased energy levels throughout the day and boost your brainpower.
Doing fitBoost as a family will become a wonderful memory for the kids, and can help them make daily physical activity breaks a healthy habit for life. Make the time, use fitBoost, and enjoy the break you take. You’ll be amazed at how great you feel when you do.
