The iGames

May Moore Elementary School students sprang into fitness mode through the use of active video games during their physical education classes. Fitness professionals brought the iGame4 Fitness Program into the school to promote physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle by integrating larger-than-life interactive and educational video games into school curricula.

In small groups, students rotated through diverse fitness stations consisting of dance, aerobic and adventure activities, each of which featured 100” screens, projectors and video game consoles, while heart rates and calories burned were tracked to collect data. Throughout the sessions, students improved their endurance, flexibility, balance and overall health while building teamwork skills.
