families invited to try new high-tech exercise programme
toddlers and young children in the Burnham-On-Sea area will be
the first in the UK to try a new interactive sensory exercise
programme which is being launched at King Alfred Sports Centre
in Highbridge on Tuesday (May 3rd).
The PRAMA Kidz programme uses movement, lights and music to help
children develop and improve their balance, agility, coordination
and social skills.
The new PRAMA fitness equipment is unique as it is multi- sensory
and uses an intelligent interactive flooring system with integrated
LED lights, controlled by touch screen technology.
The new progamme aims to excite both parents and children alike
as it uses technology to develop essential physical and social
skills while working together as part of a team.
leader Ryan Jones told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The PRAMA programme
is very creative; it uses lights and music to create a high energy
atmosphere where children are having so much fun working together
to react quickly to the programme."
of the younger children will be part of a programme which uses
story telling to inspire them, such as a Jungle theme where they
can enjoy music from the Jungle Book and follow random lights
or Cheetah tracks. It's a fun new way to exercise using the latest
cutting edge technology to get kids active."

age groups, beginning with the baby, toddler and pre-school age
