Get Fit While Your Kids Play In The Blast Zone

Guest post by Nicole DeIorio, Marketing Intern

On the way to developing a healthy lifestyle, you’re focused on eating right, maintaining a specific workout regimen, and staying motivated. In the quest for fitting in a quick workout, you need a childcare program that takes care of your darling little ones while you pave the way to health.

The Blast Zone offers fun activities and socialization for kids of all ages. Children are encouraged to play with toys, and take part in arts and crafts. Each week, childcare staff decorate their door to match the theme of activities, ranging from Winter Wonderland, Spirit Week, Valentine’s Day, and more. During the theme Winter Wonderland, kids can paint handprint Christmas trees with their friends.

A strict no-outside-technology rule is enforced to ensure children are socializing. Under special circumstances, such as medical need, children may keep their cell phone on them. All other times, kids can read books, and play Wii and Xbox for a short time.

Character building remains the main focus of Blast Zone. Children may use the separate homework station to finish projects they bring from school. They are also encouraged to participate in music time, body movement exercises, board games, free time, and devotion circle.

The investment Blast Zone’s energetic staff make in children’s lives is clear. Kids beg to come back the next day – a good motivator to sign up for an XGT or Zumba class! Blast Zone gives parents the opportunity to workout knowing their children are safe and enjoying themselves. Focus on shaping your life while your child is having a blast at Zone!
