PEP Grant + Exergaming

This is a sponsored post from Motion Fitness.

With the release of the 2011 Carol White PEP Grants we always get asked the same question, how do you get the most out of your PEP Grant no matter what stage you’re in (year 1, year 2, year 3) and make the biggest impact on your community and students grades? Kenston Local Schools in Chagrin Falls, OH was posed with the same question. How would they use the grant of federal funds earmarked for physical education programming for the district’s 3,200 K-12 students? Enter Motion Fitness and Exergaming.

What is Exergaming? Exergaming is a great tool to motivate people to participate and engage through games.

“I couldn't be happier with our "exergaming" equipment purchased from Motion Fitness! Children of all ages within the Kenston Local School District enjoy this fun, challenging way of exercising, which many have never experienced in a school setting. It is especially exciting to see our students after they have used our iDANCE System, with over 32 children being able to play at once it is Multiplayer exergaming fun! Motion Fitness has allowed us to engage students in the Physical Education setting that may have been previously "turned off" to physical activity,” Jeff Gowdy, PEP Grant Facilitator.

As the New Year on PEP grants turns we invite all previous, current and future PEP Grant winners the opportunity to learn more about exergaming, and how it can be implemented at your facility with great success through Motion Fitness.
