Fitness for the Whole Family with ibitz™ by GeoPalz (and a Giveaway!)

Fitness for the Whole Family

Family fitness is so important to maintaining health and wellness. Whether it is a weekend sport, or simply walking, movement is key. With last month being heart health month, we learned that children’s cardiovascular fitness is declining at alarming rates worldwide!

During CES I learned more about ibitz™ by GeoPalz, a company that makes pedometers for the whole family. This innovative tools allows kids and adults to track their steps as they achieve fitness goals together.

They are also really cool for kids where they come in a unique array of bright colors such as purple, lime, red, orange and more! They also have exclusive rewards and content from kids’ favorite online virtual world platforms Disney’s Club Penguin and Minecraft where they can earn more games with the more steps that they take. Intrinsically, the child feels accomplishment and rewarded when he reaches the level. Parents can also set goals and add extrinsic rewards to keep them active and exploring. The more active the child is, the more rewards they can earn. Parents can personalize rewards to the child (e.g. an hour of screen time, Frisbee with Dad, a new soccer ball or even a trip to Disney) or choose from a suite of rewards including Club Penguin points, Minecraft GeoPalz server access and rewards, and exclusive Ubooly content created for GeoPalz.
