MODIFIED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAM!
This week’s exercise of the week is a demonstration of one of the game-based exercises delivered in our Modified Physical activity program for kids! This exercise titled Treasure Stash, encourages the participant to pick up two juggling balls (made of rice wrapped in balloons) and perform a double-legged hop across several hula-hoops. Once the participant reaches the last hoop they balance and throw both balls (one-at-a-time) into a hula hoop or bucket. This fun and simple exercise enhances the participants, hopping, dynamic balance, coordination and throwing skills and when done several times in succession is a great for cardiovascular fitness as well! As always when selecting exercise check with your Exercise Physiologist in determining whether an exercise is appropriate for you! ... See MoreSee Less
