It’s no secret that I’ve been a massive fan of the SworkIt app, having blogged about it extensively in posts here and here. It’s also a major feature in my PE Geek Workshops, always proving to be extremely popular amongst attendees.
However, one of the only criticisms that the app used to receive was that it was focused more so, on adults and as a result, was more of an appropriate addition to middle and high school student aged classes. It wasn’t that it couldn’t be used by younger students, it’s just that some of the activities were a little difficult and adult focused, which understandably turned off some teachers.
With all of this in mind, it was great to find out some time ago that the people at Nexercise (the team behind Sworkit) were deep in development of a kids version of the wildly popular app. So you can understand my excitement when I realised that it was finally available for download in the various app stores, completely for FREE.
Sworkit Kids is an exciting new app that lets you turn fitness into a game. Including workouts for Strength, Agility, and Flexibility! Designed for kids between the ages of 7 and 14, the Sworkit Kids apps works features guidance and demonstrations by kids of the same age. This feature alone makes this new app an absolute must have in the junior PE space. Who better to demonstrate the activities, than the kids themselves. I LOVE it.
