Hoop it Up!!
About Kid Tribe:
The battle over childhood obesity, now declared a disease by the American Medical Association, has a new ally in Fitness guru and TEDx Talk alum Kellee McQuinn. Nicknamed “the Pied Piper with a Boom Box” by the LA Times. In 2002 she founded KidTribe, an international children’s fitness and nutrition program, and has single-handedly evoked a new paradigm of physical education with her trend-setting activities and cutting-edge approach.
KidTribe’s infectious routines take the form of ‘Fitness Concerts’ known as Hoopapalooza which have grown to be a popular and award school assembly program, seen by over 3.5 million kids and teachers. So popular in fact that it has been a staple at the White House Easter Egg Roll since 2010! Now, parents can take the energy of KidTribe’s live show home with them with HOOPERSIZE®, a retail fitness kit designed just for children and families to keep them active.
About the Product:
HOOPERSIZE by KidTribe • $39.95 • Ages 6+
Hoop-de-doo! Here’s the first retail fitness kit designed just for children and families to keep them active. Kit includes an easy-to-assemble, indestructible full sized Pro-Hoop that’s designed to be a bit thicker, heavier, and a lot sturdier than typical hoops you may have seen. Built for success, this bigger diameter surprisingly makes tricks easier to accomplish and allows kids to hoop for longer periods of time. It also includes two Parents’ Choice Foundation Award-winning DVDs featuring instructional music videos that teach tricks, lead dynamic routines and entertain with nutrition and other tips. The kit is packed with 12 instructional games. Also included is a HOOPERSIZE CD with seven heart-pumping tunes.
Did you know that if you Hoola Hoop for 10 minutes you burn as many calories as running one mile? We learned that from Miss Kellee on Hoopersize!! If you are looking for a great way to get your kids off the couch and moving, you need Hoopersize! My son couldn’t hoola hoop to save his life this morning. After watching the fun video with Miss Kellee, he can do it for about 30 or 40 seconds! She makes things so easy and fun that you want to try and want to succeed. You can watch my son below.
The Hoop is virtually indestructible! It is super easy to snap together. The videos are fun and hip! The CD Hooptunes is our new favorite CD that we listen to in the car!
