“The *Sportwall XerPro is like a giant Nintendo Wii, but it’s not simulated activity – you actually have to throw the ball at the target and catch the ball coming back. It works great for the little kids, but it also starts building into sports elements – speed, agility, change of direction – so it can also be used for training top-level athletes.”
Ken Karwoski
Worthington YMCA, MN

 

“We’ve been convinced for some time that interactive fitness is the future when it comes to exercise for children, and our members’ excitement hasn’t diminished since we installed our interactive gym more than a year ago.”

Pendle Leisure Trust (program includes *Sportwall XerTrainer and  multiplayer dance)

 

“As an elementary PE teacher who has undergone the rigorous challenges of National Board Certification, Sportwall* offers a wide variety of activities to teach skills, introduce movement concepts (force, opposition, transfer of weight) and provide learning activities that address respect, diversity, cooperation and teamwork. Its use of multi-sensory stimulation (sight, sound, hearing) to motivate students provides physical activities that positively affect academic brain based learning and makes learning fun.”
Todd Keating, P.E. Teacher
River Woods Elementary School

 

“The key to attaining the highest level of sports performance is neurological efficiency. SMART* ProTrainer offers a unique multisensory training experience that engages the brain as well as the body, challenging the athlete to raise their level of play and helping them achieve more consistent ‘in the zone’ performance.”

“With the scary rise in childhood obesity, it is necessary for fitness centers to start incorporating children’s fitness components such as *Sportwall to get kids active! At Cooper Aerobics Center at Craig Ranch, we are excited to feature the *Sportwall in our brand new, state of the art facility and to be able to offer this new technology to children.”
Jennifer Pell, Youth Program Coordinator

“Kids love this equipment and have so much fun they don’t even realize how much exercise they are doing. I give *Sportwall my highest recommendation and commend the designers/developers of this cutting-edge equipment for new hope in the fight against childhood inactivity/obesity.”

“Our *Sportwall adds a whole new dimension with unlimited possibilities for skills and fitness development. It is very easy to operate and its benefits are limited only by the user’s creativity. It is well received by elementary students of all ages and levels of skill. Most noticeable was that the less skilled participants got the most encouragement from their team members and showed the most improvement in both skills and attitude. It definitely improved their self esteem and motivated them to work hard and do their best.”
Karen Perry-Kaplan, P.E. Specialist
Schofield Elementary School

 

“*Sportwall has been a great addition to our facility. As a matter of fact, we have added and developed many games and activities to the ones you provide in your manual. The Sportwall is what makes Kids HealthClub.com different from all other facilities that provide youth fitness. Our staff and I feel that it has made us a standout in the new youth fitness industry.”

“What I particularly like about *Sportwall is the enthusiastic and sustained interest it generates from kids who traditionally don’t achieve high levels of daily physical activity and exceed their recommended body weight. With this product, all kids can be successful regardless of their beginning fitness level.”
Kyle J. McInnis, Sc.D., FACSM
International expert and leading researcher in exercise science and fitness from the University of Massachusetts, Boston

Tom Flynn, District Vice President
YMCA of South Hampton Roads

 

Physical education is in need of a makeover, adapted to the children of this generation. I feel you developed the perfect material to create that lost intrinsic motivation again and help kids fall in love with movement and  exercise.
