For Healthy, Fit Kids…It’s Gotta be a Doughboy!
Owning a Doughboy Pool is a great way to keep your children healthy and fit! Childhood obesity is on the rise and approximately 9
million children over 6 years of age living in the United States are considered obese. The increase in the number of obese children
is the result of children eating more calories than they are using though daily physical activity.
We believe this number has increased due to competition for children’s leisure time. In years past, children spent much of their time
outdoors riding bicycles and playing with neighborhood friends. In recent years, outdoor activities have been replaced with watching
television and playing computer and video games. This means in order to keep our children healthy, we must get them moving!
Swimming is a fun form of exercise and the benefits swimming offers for a lifetime are worth taking the time to purchase a pool.
Healthy Benefits of Swimming:
- Water acts as resistance to help build muscle strength - therefore, children grow significantly stronger and more coordinated while
- Can lower blood pressure
- Regular swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.
- Swimming burns calories at a rate of about 3 calories a mile per pound of bodyweight!
- A 100 lb. person can swim leisurely for 30 minutes and burns 141 calories.
Purchasing a Doughboy Pool not only keeps your kids healthy and at home, it also helps create a lifetime of backyard fun and family
memories. What better place for your kids to have fun and stay fit than in the safety of their own backyard?
