Safety Features for Children include:
Free Wheeling crank system
Easy turn and twist seat height adjustment, specifically designed for youth. The unique semi – recumbent design provides proper back support, supporting proper posture for the child.
Electronic Computer monitor is positioned below the child’s sightline, eliminating the (dangerous) need for children to stand up and cycle in order to see the computer.
Two sets of handlebars allow child to remain in a comfortable pedaling position at all times. The side handlebars can be used to support their bodyweight while pedaling- Front handlebars offer stability while a child is viewing the computer display.
All resistance is created via a magnetic braking mechanism- thus greatly reducing the number of moving parts
The Ab Crunch machine is specifically sized for youth and is designed with the developing child in mind. The ab crunch focuses on strengthening children's core muscles.
Why is core strength important for children?
Poor core strength not only causes bad posture but is also a contributing factor in poor endurance and poor balance. Without core strength, the child's gross and fine motor skills are impaired. Strengthening the child's core is considered a vital building block in the developing body!
