5.0 out of 5 stars Great program for kids - The Best March 12 2005
By Jes & kids - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is probably the best program I've ever seen for kids, it is simply the best. I read a review about this program in a magazine, so I thought I would give it a try, since my kids are always wanting to try new things. From the moment we popped the DVD in, my kids were glued to the screen. They watched Mr. Grogan & the kids on the screen, and followed along to EVERY movement. It was pretty amazing to see! I even got up & did most of the movements with my kids. I can't believe how easy it is to follow along with the movements in this program, but at the same time, how much of a workout it provides. This is a pretty amazing concept, and one that is rare in any type of exercise program - the ability to have a program that is very easy to follow along to, but also provides a very good workout. Another terrific point about this video is Mr. Grogan's interaction with the kids, he is just clearly having fun with the kids & the movements, and it comes across as being very natural. Which is probably another reason why my kids absolutely love this video. Kids can tell the difference when someone is really having fun, and when they're just going through the motions.

My kids & I have tried a couple of other kid's exercise videos - The Denise Austin kid's video & the Tae-Bo kid's video, and to be honest we were pretty dis-appointed. These videos, even though they were done by well known fitness professionals, didn't have a very good feel for kids, nor was it very easy to follow along with. As a matter of fact, both of these videos were very close to being a complete duplicate of some of Denise Austin & Tae-Bo's other videos who are designed for adults. Kids are kids, and movements in a kid's video should be for kids. These two should stick to what they're good at, and it's NOT making videos for kids. Leave that to Mr. Grogan, who is one of the best at working with kids. One more thing that probably helps Mr. Grogan in his kid's video is the fact that he is a physical education teacher, and a Martial Arts instructor, so he has hands on experience working with kids everyday. This type of experience is very evident & clearly displayed within this program.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Incredible Program - EXCELLENT June 21 2004
By Thomas Jacobbson - Published on Amazon.com
This is absolutely the most incredible program I've EVER seen. I generally don't write reviews, because most exercise programs I've seen don't deserve the time it takes to write one. So if I'm taking the time to write this one, let me tell you it is worth it. The words incredible, great, and excellent don't even come close to describing this program, I just couldn't think of any more powerful words to use.
The guy on this video, Rich Grogan, has really got something with this program. First of all he is fun, and entertaining for the kids. And the kids that are actually in the video are having fun (genuine fun, none of this paid actors fun), they're feeding off of Rich's positive energy, and having a good time with it. This is one of the major hooks that pulls you in, these kids are glowing with fun, energy, and excitement, and it is basically thrown into your living room when you watch the video. My kids at home can't just sit on the couch and watch this program, they have to get up and actually do the program. It is almost like some super-natural force grabs them and pulls them on the floor to begin exercising with Rich & the kids. I know this may sound strange, and I am sure some people are saying to themselves, "there is NO way my kid would be this excited about an exercise program". Well, I'm telling you it is true. And, it's not like my kids have only watched the program once or twice, we have basically wore out our VHS copy, and that is why we bought the DVD, which is even better, because now we can skip through to certain parts of the program when we are short on time. What I've been doing in the mornings, before summer camp, I'll get the kids up and pick a section of the video (DVD) and have them do that section before we leave for summer camp, or do the same at night before bed. I really would have thought by now that my kids would be tired of this video, but the way Rich has set the program up, it is still challenging for them. Rich continually tells the kids to have fun, and to do their very best, and to just do what they can. But he makes the program so darn fun that the kids really apply themselves, and do what they can to become better at the moves. Anyway, Rich does sets of 15 instead of the normal set of 5 or 10, this way, as he explains it, the kids can continue to advance within the program, because maybe they can only do 5 push ups or jumping jacks when they first start the program, but the goal is to reach 15, so they have to keep practicing at it. Another interesting thing Rich does is, he has the kids visualize they are grabbing apples & oranges instead of punching each other, or an imaginary opponet. At first I thought this was a little goofy, but once again as Rich explains it, it takes the violent aspect out of the technique, it makes it more fun for the kids, and if the kids pretend they are grabbing something they get a better stretch throughout the entire movement, both forward & back.
Did I say this video was Incredible?
I could list about 10 more things, but I think you get the picture. I'm telling you, BUY THIS FOR YOUR KIDS, it's amazing!
Hey Rich, if you read this, Your program is the greatest! Thank you from me & my kids!
Sincerely,
Thomas Jacobbson & Family

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kids LOVE this video! Feb. 10 2005
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
We homeschool and purchased Kick to Get Fit Jr. for our sons as a part of their physical fitness program. They LOVE this video. When we received it in the mail we made the rule that they have to workout each day before they can play video games or watch TV. No Problem. They love it and even want to have their friends over to workout with them. They don't even complain when I remind them to do their workout. This is a huge step in our household.

No, it is not done to perfection, but that is the part I like best. It makes it very real to life. My boys don't have to feel like they must do it perfectly (a big plus when you have a perfectionist). It frees them up to just have fun getting fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for P.E. - Great for Home May 8 2005
By SS 1413 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This program is terrific for physical education classes, and it's terrific for my kids at home.

As a P.E. teacher I'm always looking for new & exciting things to do with my students, and I've got quite the collection of books, videos & now DVDs. I came across this program, and read that Mr. Grogan is also a P.E. teacher, and a Martial Arts & Fitness instructor, so I thought with that type of background, and all the positive reviews from others, this DVD was a must try.

And try I did, and try I have, many, many times. My kids love this program. Some of my classes, and even my kids at home often ask to do the "apple picking" program. (You'll have to watch the DVD to understand what I'm talking about). This program offers a complete head to toe workout, everything from strecthing, to push ups, to apple grapping, to kicking, to jumping, running, and even a cool down, and the amazing part is, it is all done at a child's level. But don't be fooled into thinking it's super slow & boring, because it's not. It's just the correct speed for the kids to keep up with (which gives them one heck of a workout), while having fun. Also, the kids on this program, are just normal everyday kids, and they make small little goof ups from time to time, which in my opinion adds to the greatness of this program. Because students watching in P.E. class, and my kids at home can relate with these kids just being kids & having fun. To many times people forget that kids are kids, and that kids need to have fun & do the best they can, meaning - Kid's are not adults!

All in all, I think this is one of the best programs I've come across, and I've seen my share!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick to Get Fit Jr. IS A KICK Nov. 15 2005
By O. Pink Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I didn't think my 11 year-old son would like Kick to Get Fit Jr. (aka "Kick"). I'm always looking for supplemental exercise since a lot of schools have deleted the daily P.E. class. At first glance at "Kick" I saw only 4 - 8 year-old kids with two taller kids (girls) standing in the back. "Oh no" I thought, " there's no one he can relate to in this video . . . this won't work." Yet that was not the case. He didn't want me to turn off "Kick." It's absolutely true what I read in the other reviews: the program is great !! The steps are easy to follow and the instructor RELATES TO KIDS. I was amazed. When I asked my son what he liked about "Kick," he said "it's fun; it's for kids. . . and maybe I can lose my stomach." I also purchased the Denise Austin Kids video and was disappointed. And I didn't want to try TaeBo for kids; if TaeBo hurts me, just think what it would do for my child. Any hoot, "Kick" is worth buying. I'm just curious if my son will be as enthusiastic 3 - 6 months from now. I'll see and send an addendum to this review.
