While I was unsure of doing an exercise program, B and C were very excited. I enrolled them in Zoodoos (k-5th) and we selected our first workout. We had a choice to either select a pre-made workout or build one ourselves. We have mainly focused on the workout for k-2nd, but we have also tried the 3rd-5th workouts. The workouts lasted between 14-20 minutes and left the kids wanting more. After the workouts the kids watched short videos and/or answered questions about nutrition, motivation and wellness. They were able to earn points to add clothes or accessories to their avatar. B and C have had a lot of fun providing their avatar with shoes, pets and watches.
What I Liked:
- How excited B and C are to do it every day.
- You can either build your own workout or do one they have built.
- That each workout had warm up, cardio, strength and flexibility.
What I Disliked:
- I could not enlarge the video to fill my computer screen for easier viewing.
What B (boy, age seven, officially in first grade) Liked and Disliked: We have done some k-2nd workouts and one 3rd-5th workout. GoTrybe was very good, because you got to exercise a lot. I like exercising. We did squats, jumping jacks, the swimmer and jogged in place. My favorite was running in a triangle, picking up bean bags and putting them back. If you want to learn more about what we did, try the free one day trial. I think GoTrybe is great for kids my age! I think Momma liked it too!
What C (girl, age five, working on kindergarten) Liked and Disliked: It is good for kids my age, because it had tricky workouts. I liked doing the swimmer in one of the k-2nd workouts. It had jumping jacks. It was fun. It is only available on the internet, unless you went to Tennessee where they are, which you can do if you send them an e-mail.
