Family fun with Flip2BFit fitness board game - #product review


School is well underway and it won’t be too long before we’ll feel the shift in temperature as summer turns to fall. For a lot of us those cooler temperatures mean more time spent indoors and less time spent on outdoor sports and activities. One thing we don’t need a break from is staying fit; the best way is to stay fit as a family.

My children (ages 7, 9 and 10) and myself finally had a small window of time to test Flip2BFit and we’re all flipping (sorry, couldn’t help myself) over it. It’s perfect for a family of four and definitely ideal for kids, like mine, who appear unable to keep their bodies still and/or love to exercise and try new things.

Flip2BFit is the first, and thus far the only, fitness board game. It gets players off of their butts to twist, stretch and jump (and that’s very entertaining to watch!) by introducing kids and their families to yoga, cardio, strength and stretching activities. According to the company’s website, “Utilizing the aspects of play, this innovative, creative and super entertaining game gets everyone up and moving and inspires a healthy lifestyle while building confidence and a love for activity. Through carefully chosen mental and physical challenges, children make informed choices while developing motor skills, coordination and muscle memory. It’s a simple and fun way to introduce kids to the beginnings of a healthy lifestyle while incorporating play into gym class, a rainy day, before and after school programs, homeschooling and more. Plus, there is no equipment necessary. Just open the box and play!”

With a quick perusal of the instructions and a brief explanation to the kiddos we were off and running… uh, actually stretching, jumping and doing strength building activities. My children found it almost impossible to sit still while a sibling took their turn so everyone’s turn normally included everyone playing. Although we comfortably played the game with four people (the maximum individuals), it can still be played if you have a larger family or want to play with a group. You’ll simply have to play using teams.

We haven’t gotten a chance to finish the first game, but it’s definitely still sitting out waiting for us to have the time. The children’s evenings are filled with homework, studying and projects not to mention chores when I can get them to do them without argument. We’re probably going to have to designate a day and/or time to play Flip 2B Fit more often.

We reviewed Flip2BFit fitness board game and we all loved it.
