For those of you that have been waiting to hear about our field trip to Sky Zone, it was almost too much fun! I want to sincerely thank Sky Zone, for letting us enjoy a day of fitness and fun with the Children’s Fitness Foundation kids. It has been about 5 weeks since our Summer CFF program started with the Boys & Girls Club. We wanted to reward the kids for working so hard with us this summer, with a field trip to Sky Zone. If you have not been to Sky Zone it is a fantastic place to have a lot of fun, at a low cost! It is also a way to get your kids to exercise without them knowing.
Watch this short video to see what I mean.
CFF Trainer, Brooke, and I took the kids from the Boys & Girls Club and had a blast. I think we were all brought back to our childhood that day. We did flips, jumps and played games with the kids on enormous trampolines and inside ball pits. We couldn’t keep ourselves from acting like kids again. I was also reminded of how fear and awareness sets in as you get older. Things that I used to do as a kid, were a bit hesitant at my young, old age☺ I think as adults and parents we need to practice being like kids more often. We definitely need to do our best to keep our fitness up to par, so that we can enjoy good times with our kids as they grow. For me my fitness isn’t so bad, but back hand springs and back flips were out of the question. However; I did do a few kart wheels and front hand springs, so I didn’t loose all my game. The problem is I don’t want to loose any game. So I left being more motivated to keep on getting fit, and I decided that a trip to Sky Zone with CFF, more often, might not be such a bad idea. In fact it’s a GREAT idea!
The kids had so much fun jumping, flipping and playing dodge ball. It was a nice way to reward them for all their hard work with CFF. Funny enough they didn’t even realize that they were still using their muscles and keeping their heart rate up, but all while having fun. So the lesson is that fitness can be fun and you can create fun family activities that will secretly keep your kids in shape. Here are some of the pictures of us having a blast at Sky Zone.
