Kid Gyms on the Rise

That is right, you can not use the kids as an excuse not to go to the gym anymore Because the newest craze in fitness is giving kids their own gyms.

Many fitness centers are taking ideas from normal gyms and gearing them towards a younger group.

They use video games like dance, dance revolution and, make the experience more about the fun than about the workout.

"He doesn't want to come home. Last night after an hour he said, 'Please, Mom can I stay longer?' And he brought my husband back and played 20 minutes longer," says mother, Lisa Allen.

Gym owner, Dawn Paley says, "And their moms can go work out and the kids can come here or the kids can come here and the moms can go shop, go to the grocery store."

Experts hope that what starts at these gyms can turn into a lifelong healthy habit.
