In honor of Black Friday, Heelys, Inc. is rolling out two discount deals for U.S. residents, plus free ground shipping on all orders. See below for both deals.
In a press release form Heelys, they shared the American Heart Association, are reporting one in three children are already obese or overweight. With school in full swing it can be hard to find the time to keep your kids active after hours upon hours of sitting at their desks and doing homework when they come home. My son could spend hours sitting if he wasn’t signed up for activities a few times a week.. My daughter and I aren’t signed up for any activities to keep us active so this is what we have found to do to stay active.
It’s been one year since I was given clearance to start working out again after my back fusion. This is also the first time I tried on Heelys to try and give them a whirl. You can read more about my Mom in Heelys Review in that link. I realized that I had a lot of work to do in strengthening the muscles in my core. I have a little bit of permanent damage to the nerves in my right leg so retraining my mind to use a different foot for support and learning how to use Heelys took some work. Like I mentioned it has been a year since I first started working with them. I’m not perfect and usually I wear them when I am alone because chasing toddlers on uneven ground wouldn’t be smart. I also have been doing Insanity for the past 60 days and will be moving on to ChaLEAN Extreme to keep myself active during the winter months when I won’t be able to use my Heelys outdoors. I can always use them as I grocery shop.
My daughter also has been working hard to skate with her Heelys Designed Especially for Females. They keep her busy after school for hours. She is a lot better at it than I am. Her friends think they are so cool. I like that she can use them as casual shoes or even gym shoes on days that we forget. Removing the wheels are easy with the special tools so she can wear them at school as regular shoes and change them in the car on the way home to hit the sidewalks for hours of active moving. Because we both have a pair we can hang out together doing something that she loves during her special mom and me time. Thank goodness it is still in the 60’s here!
What do you do to stay active with your kids?
