Kids in Motion is a program designed for kids and teens to exercise and learn about fitness and nutrition as fun experience.
Located at the YMCA in Huntington, WV, the Kids in Motion program is available to kids ages 5-17 in the West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky Tri-State area. The program customizes workouts and classes to fit each individual's fitness level through pre and post-fitness assessments.
To get moving, children utilize exergaming equipment, which combines exercise and video games. Activities include games similar to those popular in arcades and at-home consoles that all ages can enjoy. They get kids moving to burn calories and increase agility, hand-eye coordination, and motor function all while having fun! Kids and teens compete with each other as well as their previous scores in order to earn points for prizes while burning calories along the way.
Kids in Motion is not just about fun and games. Kids, teens, and families also receive nutrition education and support along with a trip to Huntington's Kitchen to learn how to prepare healthy and nutritious foods.
