This holiday season, help kids start the New Year off on the right foot through a new and exciting fitness board game that teaches kids about physical activity and nutrition. Introducing Flip2BFit, an interactive board game where kids develop self-esteem, confidence, and leadership skills through stretching, strength building, cardio and yoga activities – no gym or video game needed! In addition to Flip2BFit, the company also offers an exciting game of memory called Bakari, which emphasizes the same physical fitness skills as Flip2BFit but also challenges the mind!
At the age of 12, Flip2BFit Founder Heather Parisi was a national gymnast when she suddenly broke her leg leaving her with a discrepancy in length in her legs. This injury caused her to be teased, bullied, and eventually led to an eating disorder, which she overcame. However, through fitness she was able to find a place to be “normal” as she was still able to participate (and excel) in sporting activities, ultimately becoming a collegiate diver. Her physical challenges coupled with her awareness of the growing obesity problem among children in the U.S., were the drivers to create a fitness game for kids.
