Exergame Circle of Benefits
Exergaming is an essential component to an active and healthy lifestyle. It is designed to engage kids and adults from the very beginning while keeping them mentally and physically focused.
Exergaming has been proven to enhance academic performance by building new brain cells and neurological connections that increase learning, memory, and critical thinking.
The act of motion, or physically playing, is the foundation of what our bodies need. Studies show Exergaming provides improvement in three key areas: Health, Academics, and Social Behavior.
Social Development Exergaming encourages family participation, bonding, and social integration among peers. Physical activity is the natural way to prevent the negative consequences of stress, attentiondeficit, hyperactivity disorder and other behavioral issues “90% of teachers and 86% of parents surveyed connect physical activity with improved academic performance and behavior.” - PE4Life Bluprint for Change
“Memory retention and learning functions are all about brain cells actually changing, growing, and working better together. . . Exercise creates the best environment for that process to occur.” - Dr. John J. Ratey, Harvard Medical School, author of the book Spark.
Health & Fitness Being physically fit and active leads to overall fitness for the heart, cardiovascular system, muscle and cell development, and longevity. Exergaming is an exciting and motivating experience for everyone that helps build the basis for developing a sustainable healthy and active life. “One in every three U.S. children born after 2000 will become diabetic unless many more people start eating less and exercising more.” -- Dr. K.M. Venkat Narayan, diabetes epidemiologist Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Exergaming provides healthcare professionals with this type of unique tool to empower patients to be successful in reversing their lifestyle-related diseases.” Phil Lawler Director, PE4life Instruction and Outreach “30% of school kids in this country are overweight or obese. As a PE teacher for over 35 years, I used to think video games were the enemy…but when I started using “Exergaming” equipment with my students, I recognized the time had come to embrace it.”
Dr. Stephen Yang Assistant Professor, State University of New York College at Cortland. “In Physical Education, we strive to provide a safe and positive learning environment that supports the needs and abilities of our students. Exergaming, in its many forms, is available in schools (before and after-school), at home, and in the community and thus has the potential to impact students physically, cognitively, and socially”

STATISTICS 16 According to the New England Journal of Medicine... “...today’s children will likely become the first generation of children that will not outlive their parents.” *2009 childhood obesity statistical map from healthyamericans.org
Childhood Obesity is a serious public health epidemic:
• During the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups, increasing almost 500% among children ages 6 to 11. • Today, more than 33 percent of children and adolescents are overweight or obese...that’s nearly 25 million kids and teenagers. • If we don’t reverse this alarming trend, we’re in real danger of raising the first generation of American children who will be more prone to illness, and possibly premature death, than the generation before them. Preventing obesity during childhood is critical as habits acquired in youth typically continue into adulthood. Research shows that obese adolescents have (up to) an 80 percent chance of remaining overweight, or obese, as adults.
