SPARK is Partnering with Motion Fitness to Get America's Youth Moving

by SPARK


The childhood obesity statistics in America are startling: over the past three decades, obesity rates among youth have tripled, and nearly one third of children in America are now overweight or obese. While there are many different culprits, reduced physical activity is one of the main causes of this national epidemic. At SPARK we’re building on our mission to provide effective solutions to combat this trend by partnering with Motion Fitness, a national leader in Exergaming solutions for youth.

“Motion Fitness is an established leader in exergaming and they align well with SPARK’s focus on utilizing technology to improve student health.  We view this partnership as another positive step in our efforts in our mission to fight childhood obesity.” said Paul Rosengard, SPARK Executive Director.

Motion Fitness was started in 1998 with a simple goal: “give people the ability and power to move”. The company continues to stand as a leading industry expert in products, solutions and partnerships through fitness, exergaming and active Game Play. We hope that by collaborating with Motion Fitness we’ll be able to bring our respective strengths together in a way that will allow us to impact more schools, teachers and children across the country.

As partners, SPARK and Motion Fitness look to inspire physical activity through cutting-edge exergame game experience and the world’s most researched and field-tested physical education program. Keep an eye out for good things to come!
