Adventure to Fitness – Interview with a 1st Grader

Emma came home from school yesterday raving about Adventures to Fitness so of course I asked her tons of questions about it. It actually is a really great program. Here is how my little interview with her on Adventures to Fitness went:

Mom: What is it?

Emma: It is a show we watch at school, the characters go places all over the world.

M: So you just watch the show? What do you learn?

E: (makes annoyed hissing sound, rolls eyes at me) No, we play it too.

M: Oh, how do you play it?

E: There is this guy make laze’ but it is pronounced the fancy way because there is a thing over the e. But it is really lazy. He wants the whole world to be lazy. So they go on an adventure to help make people not lazy. We run around and jump and stuff with it.

M: Oh that sounds fun. Do you do that in gym class.

E: No, we do it in Mrs. Sanchez’s class (the class she is in)

M: Awesome so you get to do that and gym. That sounds like fun. Do you learn anything while you play?

E: They learn about places in the world. Today we did one about Egypt. Mr. Laze’ had this necklace that looked like one of those bugs from Egypt. It make everyone be lazy so we had to help get it back so people wouldn’t be lazy. People can’t be healthy if they are just lazy all the time.

M: You are right Emma. People can’t just be lazy all the time.

E: Yeah, it makes you fat.

M: What else is it about?

E: Sometimes it talks about healthy food.

M: Like eating more of it?

E: you make me eat enough vegetables mom.

All in all it sounds like a good program. I like how it is not PE time but extra physical activity for kids during the school day. Emma wants me to find it on TV so we can do it at home but from what I have found it does not come on TV and you must have a school email to access the videos online. Bummer. It sounds like it would be a great Saturday morning activity. Maybe there is something similar out there that can be found.

In this day and age with childhood obesity, too much TV and too many video games some extra get up and go is great for kids and I give kudos to Adventures in Fitness for bringing more physical activity into schools. So many schools have gotten rid of PE, cut recess times or nixed recess all together and there are so many parents who do not encourage kids to get moving. Granted Emma does not spend a ton of time playing outdoors in the winter because my Reynaud’s makes it hard to spend time in the cold we do move things out of the living room and break out the hula hoops, jump ropes and find things to run around and do and she participates in swim most of the winter.

  1. Hi there!
    Corey here from Adventure to Fitness. We’re so thrilled that Emma is enjoying the program! I wanted to leave a reply because I saw that you were looking to access it at home. While it’s not on tv (yet, but we hope one day!), you can indeed go on our adventures at home on DVD. You can browse our home library here, http://www.adventuretofitness.com/store. All DVD sales support the school program to keep our resources free for any teacher that wants to use them.

    Thanks so much for your support and for taking the time to give us such a wonderful write-up!

    All the best,
