The FUN BUS is an established mobile Fitness FUN on Wheels program for children ages 18 months – 7 years that can help your school in the fight against childhood obesity. The FUN BUS is a heated and air conditioned, full-sized, padded and carpeted school bus with certified safety age-appropriate exercise equipment. Certified FUN BUS instructors are on board at all times. It never moves with the children on it. We are fully insured and are more than happy to provide this to you upon request. In addition, the inside of the bus is disinfected, vacuumed, washed and cleaned at the end of each day and/or after each school visit.
We come to your school, rain or shine. The FUN BUS provides 30-minute or 20-minute structured classes in a non-competitive environment. These classes can take place weekly, once or twice per month, or for special school events at a mutually convenient day and time.
Fitness routines are changed regularly to focus on upper body strength, lower body strength, balance, coordination, and gross-motor skills. The routines engage the children in climbing, tumbling, hanging, swinging, flipping, skipping, sliding, stretching and, most of all, having FUN.
The equipment on the FUN BUS includes balance beams, parallel bars, basketball hoops, trampoline, punching bag, rock wall, monkey bars, a rope and ladder for climbing and rings, just to name a few. We do barrel rolls, George of the Jungle, parachute ball and other FUN age-appropriate games and stretches. All of the FUN exercises are done to age-appropriate music. At the end of the class, the children exit the bus through the rear door via a yellow slide (weather permitting).
