Product Description

Kick to Get Fit Jr. is an exercise program designed specifically for kids. Different than anything you've ever seen.

Children love to exercise along with this program! The moves are easy to follow along with, while being fun & exciting enough to keep kids interested.

This program involves some of the same effective movements found in Martial Arts & fitness classes, but uses a NON-VIOLENT APPROACH. The muscles mechanics are exactly the same, but the violent characteristics of throwing a punch has been eliminated. INACTIVITY HAS LEAD TO OBESITY & POOR HEALTH IN CHILDREN EVERYWHERE - KICK TO GET FIT JR. WILL GET THEM MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program for kids - The Best March 12, 2005
Format:DVD
This is probably the best program I've ever seen for kids, it is simply the best. I read a review about this program in a magazine, so I thought I would give it a try, since my kids are always wanting to try new things. From the moment we popped the DVD in, my kids were glued to the screen. They watched Mr. Grogan & the kids on the screen, and followed along to EVERY movement. It was pretty amazing to see! I even got up & did most of the movements with my kids. I can't believe how easy it is to follow along with the movements in this program, but at the same time, how much of a workout it provides. This is a pretty amazing concept, and one that is rare in any type of exercise program - the ability to have a program that is very easy to follow along to, but also provides a very good workout. Another terrific point about this video is Mr. Grogan's interaction with the kids, he is just clearly having fun with the kids & the movements, and it comes across as being very natural. Which is probably another reason why my kids absolutely love this video. Kids can tell the difference when someone is really having fun, and when they're just going through the motions.

My kids & I have tried a couple of other kid's exercise videos - The Denise Austin kid's video & the Tae-Bo kid's video, and to be honest we were pretty dis-appointed. These videos, even though they were done by well known fitness professionals, didn't have a very good feel for kids, nor was it very easy to follow along with. As a matter of fact, both of these videos were very close to being a complete duplicate of some of Denise Austin & Tae-Bo's other videos who are designed for adults. Kids are kids, and movements in a kid's video should be for kids. These two should stick to what they're good at, and it's NOT making videos for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Incredible Program - EXCELLENT June 21, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This is absolutely the most incredible program I've EVER seen. I generally don't write reviews, because most exercise programs I've seen don't deserve the time it takes to write one. So if I'm taking the time to write this one, let me tell you it is worth it. The words incredible, great, and excellent don't even come close to describing this program, I just couldn't think of any more powerful words to use.
The guy on this video, Rich Grogan, has really got something with this program. First of all he is fun, and entertaining for the kids. And the kids that are actually in the video are having fun (genuine fun, none of this paid actors fun), they're feeding off of Rich's positive energy, and having a good time with it. This is one of the major hooks that pulls you in, these kids are glowing with fun, energy, and excitement, and it is basically thrown into your living room when you watch the video. My kids at home can't just sit on the couch and watch this program, they have to get up and actually do the program. It is almost like some super-natural force grabs them and pulls them on the floor to begin exercising with Rich & the kids. I know this may sound strange, and I am sure some people are saying to themselves, "there is NO way my kid would be this excited about an exercise program". Well, I'm telling you it is true. And, it's not like my kids have only watched the program once or twice, we have basically wore out our VHS copy, and that is why we bought the DVD, which is even better, because now we can skip through to certain parts of the program when we are short on time.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kids LOVE this video! February 10, 2005
By Julie
Format:DVD
We homeschool and purchased Kick to Get Fit Jr. for our sons as a part of their physical fitness program. They LOVE this video. When we received it in the mail we made the rule that they have to workout each day before they can play video games or watch TV. No Problem. They love it and even want to have their friends over to workout with them. They don't even complain when I remind them to do their workout. This is a huge step in our household.

No, it is not done to perfection, but that is the part I like best. It makes it very real to life. My boys don't have to feel like they must do it perfectly (a big plus when you have a perfectionist). It frees them up to just have fun getting fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick to Get Fit Jr. IS A KICK November 15, 2005
Format:DVD
I didn't think my 11 year-old son would like Kick to Get Fit Jr. (aka "Kick"). I'm always looking for supplemental exercise since a lot of schools have deleted the daily P.E. class. At first glance at "Kick" I saw only 4 - 8 year-old kids with two taller kids (girls) standing in the back. "Oh no" I thought, " there's no one he can relate to in this video . . . this won't work." Yet that was not the case. He didn't want me to turn off "Kick." It's absolutely true what I read in the other reviews: the program is great !! The steps are easy to follow and the instructor RELATES TO KIDS. I was amazed. When I asked my son what he liked about "Kick," he said "it's fun; it's for kids. . . and maybe I can lose my stomach." I also purchased the Denise Austin Kids video and was disappointed. And I didn't want to try TaeBo for kids; if TaeBo hurts me, just think what it would do for my child. Any hoot, "Kick" is worth buying. I'm just curious if my son will be as enthusiastic 3 - 6 months from now. I'll see and send an addendum to this review.
