Our nine year old daughter amazes us everyday with her commitment to have a healthy strong body. She is on a competitive rock climbing team and really enjoys pushing her young body to be stronger everyday. We live about an hour away from the gym where she rock climbs and practices multiples times weekly with her team. Because of that commute, we don’t have the availability to be there everyday so our daughter gets creative with how she works out. Outdoor exercise with essentials for kids at the park is part of our everyday routine outside of the days my daughter spends climbing at the gym. Protective gear, differing forms of transportation and drinks for hydration like BODYARMOR SportWater from Kroger are all included in our outdoor exercise essentials.
Hydration for young athletes is so important and if nothing else makes it to the park with us, we always pack fluids to keep our daughters hydrated. We moved just a few months ago and have been exploring our local neighborhood parks. Although we have several, our favorite doesn’t have swings or a play structure with slides. The climbing structures at our favorite neighborhood park are perfect for our nine year old rock climbing daughter and she gets so much out of 30 minutes of play.
Strength training and activities for her core require great hydration to keep her strong. BODYARMOR SportWater was just launched in 2017 and designed for athletes. The 8+ Performance pH and Sports Electrolyte formula with a wide-mouth bottle is perfect for our essentials at the park for kids outdoor exercise.
In 2017, BODYARMOR launched two new products, their BODYARMOR SuperWater and BODYARMOR LYTE. The LYTE product has the same flavor as the original but is naturally sweetened and only has 20 calories per serving. By bringing along both the SuperWater and the LYTE, we are fully equipped at the park to hydrate our entire family.
BODYARMOR SportWater is available in 20 oz., 23.7 oz. Sports Cap and 1 Liter bottles. The original premium sports drink is packed with electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins and is low in sodium and high in potassium. It contains natural flavors and sweeteners and no colors from artificial sources.
Essentials for Kids at the Park
A helmet and wrist guards are the basic requirement in our home when our daughters are riding to the park. Our youngest daughter also regularly wears elbow and knee pads but our nine year old daughter has had some falls resulting in topical injuries that could have been prevented by wearing pads.
Differing Forms of Transportation
Going to the park is always exciting because we switch up the form of transportation regularly. Occasionally we walk but most days our oldest daughter is riding a bike, scooter, rollerblades or her hover board. By using differing forms of transportation, our park visits are a different exercise multiple times a week.
Drinks for Hydration
BODYARMOR drinks are a perfect way to provide superior hydration.
BODYARMOR LYTE is available in Cherry Berry and Peach Mango flavors. With only 20 calories per serving, it’s “heavy on hydration and LYTE on calories.”
BODYARMOR is committed to providing superior hydration to every athlete of all ages. It’s the brand of choice for athletes and has assembled an impressive team of young and superstar athletes including Kobe Bryant, James Harden, Mike Trout, Dustin Johnson, Andrew Luck, Kristaps Porzinigis, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Skylar Diggins.
My little athlete has big plans and that first starts with superior hydration.
