TOS Review ~ GoTrybe

gotrybe_logotype

With the alarming rates of childhood obesity I make sure that our family keeps pretty active and makes healthy eating welcome3choices. Did you know that nearly 1 in 3 children and teens in the U.S. is overweight or obese? WOW, we as a nation need to get our kids moving and eating better.  I recently received a 2-month subscription to the GoTrybe website which is an organization dedicated to trying to help combat childhood obesity by encouraging families to live a healthy lifestyle and get moving.

GoTrybe is an online fitness program that aims at getting the whole family up and moving by providing a web-based program that can be accessed anywhere internet is available.  We received the 9th-12th grade group, the NexTrybe.  GoTrybe has several features divided into 4 basic health sections:
1.  Fitness
2.  Nutrition
3.  Motivation
4.  Wellness

You can choose a pre-planned workout, or customize one for the day.  The program is broken down into different age groups and each group has slightly different program features so everyone can be involved:

  • ZooDoos is for the elementary ages, K-5th grade
  • Trybe180 is for middle school ages, 6th-8th grade
  • NexTrybe is for high school ages, 9th-12th grade

This is a fun program that encourages movement. Something that is needed in our world today.  Economically priced you can sign up for $19.95 for a year subscription. But wait, right now you can get a free trial. Go here and sign up — use the code GETFIT . We found this program to be a great reminder of the need to Get Up and  Get Moving!!!
