Patient Name: Little Susie O. Scheduled
Symptoms: Bored of ballet, apathetic in art class, tongue-tied in Mandarin.
Diagnosis: A bad case of the extracurricular blahs.
Treatment: A regular dose of ExerBlast’s new classes for toddlers and preschoolers.
Notes: The innovative fitness-slash-gaming concept made a splash with the elementary school set this past fall. The new Blast, Bend, and Breathe program is geared toward littles ages 2½ to 4 — think obstacle course meets life-size game board. Kids chase moving lights across the floor, build with crates, and bounce through the ball pit. Class finishes with yoga-inspired stretching and relaxation exercises.
For even younger bubs, try Learning from Your Baby seminars and mommy-and-me yoga.
It’s sick fun.
