Over the last decade, the rate of childhood obesity in America has grown drastically. While some reasons for this epidemic may include genetics or poor diet, the rise of technology and computer games has greatly contributed to a growing number of inactive adolescents. Youth exercise affects not just physical health, but attitude and test scores as well. Luckily, Sportwall, located in Carpinteria, has developed an innovative way of using modern technology to improve, rather than inhibit, physical health for people around the world. Who knew that computer games could make you fit? Well, now they can. Through their “XerGames” that are now making their way into hundreds of schools, fitness clubs, and family programs around the world, Sportwall has found a way to improve hand-eye coordination, raise enthusiasm, and bring teamwork skills to everyone involved.
