Exercise and training is great for the body and soul. That is a fact, but in practice it can be really hard to get started and weight is becoming a bigger and bigger issue for lots of people. In order to get started motivation is key, and it is undeniably easier to get started if the exercise you are going to do is also fun.
Staff member, Kenneth Yde, says that “the citizens are kind of “played” into moving their bodies, and that’s exactly what we need. It can be hard to motivate them so this is really the right way of doing it – it fits with their needs”.
Here at the residential accommodation we used Hopspots at least at couple of times a week and for at least half an hour every time, but often an entire hour, because the citizens want to keep playing.
The Hopspots-spots have a range of 20 meters on each side of the speaker unit, which allows you to spread the spots far out on the floor to make it harder or place them closely together for the less mobile citizens. Hopspots really gets the citizens to move and they run out of breath, which they don’t even notice because they are having so much fun.
