The Grade™ by Fluidstance is a deceptively fun balance board targeting middle age children. This product builds coordination and strengthens the core while providing hours of entertainment. The concept is simple yet fantastic.
This board rests on a pivot point that requires you to balance on the board. This gently builds muscles and strengthens the core. It is fun to focus on the board and have fun spinning and balancing. It’s also great to use passively such as standing on the board while playing a video game.
This board is extremely high quality. It is durable and well constructed. It’s not something that will break the second time you play with it. The health benefits coupled with the fact that it’s actually fun make this a product worth the cost.
Tabi and Jourdyn both love taking turns using it while they played video games. Jourdyn actually laughed and wanted to keep it for herself, saying “this is the most fun thing ever!” She loved turning it around in circles while balancing on it.
Tabi is more timid with it and just loves trying to keep it still while she reads her books.
No matter what kind of personality your child has, they will find something about The Grade they like!
Research continues to build showing that movement helps kids focus more clearly and improve their attention spans. In today’s duality, our kid’s lives are busier, yet more sedentary. The more we can help kids #keepmoving and out of sedentary behavior, the better off they’ll be.
Studies Show – Kids Need To Move More
- According to a Kaiser Family Foundation study, kids spend 7.5 hours/day sitting in front of a screen; when combined with time spent sitting doing other activities (in school, doing homework, eating), kids spend 75% of their awake hours in sedentary positions
- 2 out of 3 kids are not moving enough, according to a CDC study on Health and Academics
- Higher physical activity and physical fitness levels are associated with improved cognitive performance (CDC)
- Younger people who spend excessive time in sedentary behaviors also are more likely to have a lower academic achievement, poorer motor skills, and lower quality of life. (activelivingresearch.org Research Review on Sedentary Behaviors and Youth: Current Trends and the Impact on Health)
