Fitness Equipment 101
1. Variety is Key - Children need variety, and their body needs variety as well. It is important to keep the children constantly entertained, and moving from equipment to different stations. At the same time, it provides a well rounded workout for total body wellness.
2. Children do not workout for the same reasons adults do. Children do things that are FUN. The main goal needs to be create a fun environment where children get excited to go. In the long run, this results in the student realizing that exercise is fun.... and not a "chore". 
3. We recommend certain pieces for children who are not as coordinated and are new to exercise. We want all children to succeed, so we make sure to include equipment that teaches this: ALL children are meant to move, not just the athletic ones. This has become an unfortunate belief among the youth population.
4. Sizing - Kidsfit is the only manufacturer in the world that produces 4 different sizes of youth equipment. We highly recommend following our sizing guide, based on grade and age group. We consider this of paramount importance as it relates to ergonomics and proper use of equipment. 

 

Training
We highly recommend training for anyone looking to implement movement into their classroom. We believe this is the most important thing you can do to impact your students. It prepares your staff. They leave the training confident and ready to run their active classrooms smoothly.  They will be given loads of information and even teachers without the desks will know how to transform their classroom into active learning rooms (with no $ required!). Bring one of our master trainers to your school, or sign up to attend our national trainings!  Training Page

Kinesthetic Classroom FAQ

KINESTHETIC CLASSROOM -QUICK FACTS AND MYTHS 

1. This is not a replacement for PE/Recess!

PE has it's own specific purpose to enhance health and wellness through high intensity workouts and physical activity. KC desks are not a high intensity workout, and their purpose is not to increase physical health, this is just an added benefit! Kinesthetic desks are used as a learning tool. They help students retain and absorb information better in the classroom, through Low Intensity Steady State movement, and the release of BDNF.  Recess is also a vital part of development as it encourages free-play, and offers a "brain break" - all necessities for development. 
 
Are the kinesthetic desks distracting? - The desks are designed with the students AND teacher in mind. Kinesthetic Desks are completely silent and have proven the exact opposite of distracting! Studies show desks enhance student attention span, engagement, and improved behavior in the classroom. 

 

How do I justify the investment? We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on "new programs" and new educational tools and most educators will tell you they were "unsuccessful". Why do these fail?  If the brain is not ready to learn, no program will work. The first thing research tells us is the importance of movement as it relates to learning. The best investment you can make is improving your brain's capacity to learn- and we finally know the answer- movement!
 
 
Why don't you carry the under desk pedals? Although a great attempt to incorporate movement, the comparable product has had a few problems arise.  They slide too easily under the desk and the students have a hard time keeping a steady pedal- It ends up being choppy, and more of a distraction (trying keeping the pedal in place), than a benefit. We know the obvious benefit is the cost, but unfortunately they phase out within the first year of use due to lack of durability. The second issue, is that the angle is not ergonomically correct, meaning the student's posture is improper when trying to perform the "under the desk" movements. Above all, we share the same goal to create the most optimal learning environment for students, and our trainers stand firm in only promoting products that they feel are going to be an added benefit to the student.
