Burton Snowboards just released this video about their new pilot gym class Riglet program. We say props to them. Here’s what they had to say about it:
Gym is already most kids’ favorite class. A much-needed break from sitting still all day, a good way to get some exercise, and a way to burn off all that pent up energy.
Burton’s been working to change the way schools look at physical education by introducing a snowboarding program that helps teach the basics of balance, core strength, and agility. Allen Brook Elementary near Burton’s Burlington, VT, headquarters was the first to get on board with this new program, and recently debuted it to an excited group of kindergartners.
With Burton’s teaching tools like Riglet Boards and Riglet Reels, combined with balance boards, Twister-like grab mats and more, kids get to experience snowboarding’s movements and get exercise at the same time.
