{First Fitness Balance Battle Combat Fitness} + Giveaway

I'm sure you've seen Aqua Leisure products. They make those great swim floats and sun shades for summertime fun. They have added a new line of products called First Fitness. Their goal with First Fitness is to offer fun active sports equipment and games for kids to get them interested in fitness early and to make fitness fun. I love this. They have a jump rope with a counter, hop balls, obstacles courses, even a kids treadmill and lots more. I love fun things that encourage kids to spend less time with electronics and more time being active.

 

We got the opportunity to review the First Fitness Balance Battle Combat Fitness Game. It is lots of fun.
It comes with two soft inflatable battle sticks and two balance pads. The object is to use the bats to knock the other person off their balance circle. My kids love this! First Fitness says that it helps kids work on their balance equilibrium and agility skills. It also teaches them to react and recover. There is also an amount of strategy involved in deciding how to hit, push, or move based on what the other person does. One strategy my son used was just standing there while his sister hit him until she lost her balance and fell off, lol.


Balancing on the circles is fun (and challenging) by itself. (I've noticed that lots of exercise programs for adults are using discs like this.)  The kids were even trying to balance on one foot.  Balancing on the disc is actually harder than you'd think. You can really feel your muscles working to help keep you on the disc. Then when you add in swinging the inflatable bats, things get really challenging and really fun. The bats are soft and don't hurt if you get bopped in the head or the body.  They do hurt a bit if you get hit in the face. We have a "no hitting in the face" rule to keep everybody happy.

We also found that to make the balance pads easier you can not inflate them as much.  Mom and Dad played too (you can't let the kids have all the fun), and in one match dad was laughing so hard that he fell off the disk without even being hit. I love that the kids are working on balance and hand eye coordination while they are having fun. And I'm sure that all the laughing they are doing is also working on their stomach muscles, too. lol

If you are looking for something that is active and fun for kids on your list, check out the Balance Battle Combat Fitness Game  by First Fitness.
