Featured Fitness Review: Kids Get Movin' DVD with Hip-Hop and Yoga

Kids and movement seem to go hand in hand. Finding a positive outlet for the seemingly endless supply of energy fueling all of that movement and activity sometimes is a challenging task. Kids Get Movin' is an excellent workout program DVD featuring both aerobic Hip Hop and Yoga routines. Each 20 minute work out incorporates coordination, flexibility, balance and other essential gross motor skills necessary for healthy physical development.
 Showcasing the talents of yoga instructor, Liza Savage-Katz and hip-hop instructor, Hassan Christopher, the background cast of colorfully clad kids demonstrate basic movements with varying skill levels. The positive, inviting atmosphere is non-competitive in nature and very inviting to kids of all ages. Emphasizing on an introduction to the core concepts of balance, strengthening, and improved breathing and aerobic capacity, this workout helps to establish fundamentals of movement with fun musical accompaniment.

Now is the time to make sure that your Kids Get Movin'. Your purchase of this DVD supports the availability of movement programs in Public Schools with all of the proceeds benefiting the Center for Movement Education & Research.


Product Description
Kids Get Movin' is a fun and motivating exercise program recommended for children ages 7-12. This 45 minute DVD will build aerobic capacity, coordination, flexibility, strength, and balance.
KIDS GET MOVIN' has two complete workouts:
• 20 min Aerobic HIP HOP (cardio)
• 20 min YOGA (stretching & relaxation) 
Children have less opportunity to move during school hours because of the elimination of Physical Education and arts programs from elementary schools. Research has established that movement is the architect of the brain and yet our society is less active and 60% of children are more overweight then 10 years ago.
Created by UCLA dance educator and dance kinesiologist Judy Gantz, former Fitness Editor of Shape Magazine and founder of The Center for Movement Education & Research.
