LU Interactive Gym – Gamify the YMCA.
The YMCA’s are using some of the latest in fitness gaming technology with the LU Interactive Gym Playground. The Lu uses lights, sounds and video to transform the Y spaces into an engaging, immersive video game arena that gets the kids moving!
Engaging activities to make kids move, play and learn.
“The Lu Interactive Gym has been around for more than 2 years now, and is in hundreds of educational locations across North America and expanding internationally. We just introduced the LU at the YMCA General Assembly this past July in Anaheim, CA to the after-school and non-profit markets.” Ed Kasanders, Director of Axtion Technology.
The response to LU has been amazing from YMCA locations around the country. Many have purchased and many more are in the process of bringing in the LU.
The Lu Interactive Gym is great for Kids & Family programming, after-school groups, camps, classes and community events.
The LU transforms a Gym wall into a giant video game screen with loads of activities, fitness games and engaging content. It is made for small or large groups, all ages, and any ability level.
With its background in Education, the LU has about ½ of the content centered around curriculum-based education activities and the other programs are physical activity based or utility based. The amount of content available already offers dozens of options and choices, and is continually growing.
“When we did the training at Portage YMCA we had a large variety of members using the product. We started with staff training and some friendly team-building competition, we then did a small senior fitness class and could not get the group off the flow when the session was over. We then moved into some teen and adult fitness circuit training classes, followed by toddler programs for the little guys. Lastly, we finished with the Tween kids which is the target demographics of 7-14 years old.” Ed Kasanders
