Exercise With Your Child!
We will first ask to measure you and your child’s height and weight and then we will have a trained research assistant take you and your child through a physical activity session together.
The session will include 5 different physical activities for 8 minutes each.
The 5 activities include: jumping games, dancing, body-weight exercises, brisk walking, and a tag game.
We will briefly interview you at the end of the session and then we will give you a take-home worksheet with a detailed description of the activities and how to complete them at home, along with a calendar that will help you to plan out activities together and record how long you exercise for.
We will ask you to complete a brief phone call one week after attending our session to see which activities you completed at home, how long you completed them for, and where you completed them.
Also, each child will receive a free jump rope at the end of the community center session.
1.5 hours on either a Friday morning/afternoon, Saturday morning, or Sunday morning.
