When we think of computers and television, we tend to think of sitting on our bums, moving maybe just our hands to press a remote control button or move our mouse pad. But (and fortunately), the industry of Wii games have helped to turn a sedentary and solitary pasttime into a fitness activity for the entire family.
And JumpStart is jumping on this technology bandwagon as a way to improve kid’s health.

Its series of Wii games called Get Moving, which features fitness expert, Dancing with the Stars champion and mom of four, Brooke Burke, gets the family moving in its trademark JumpStart fun kind-of-way.
Burke not just rocks an incredible body, but she instills her healthy living behaviors into her own family as well by staying active together, eating healthy and having fun.
