A TUMBLEBUS is a gym on wheels
filled with fun equipment--bringing the best possible physical education
class to children at daycares, elementary schools, private schools,
and park districts. Cheerfully decorated, the TUMBLEBUS provides a unique
and fun way for children to receive the physical fitness that is so
important to their development.
Experienced instructors strive to make the experience memorable as well as educational. TUMBLEBUS programs build self-esteem in children as they accomplish each physical skill in the lesson plan which changes weekly. Click here to see inside a TUMBLEBUS.
TUMBLEBUS currently visits 20 Locations in the Chicago area and is constantly adding more. For a complete list of our schools see list below!
Benefits to the School or Park District
Your school will have a great new program to help enhance your existing curriculum. It is completely independent of your facility so no space, cost, overhead, or teacher's time is required. Everything needed for weekly classes is on the TUMBLEBUS. We also offer a discount to the staff should they want their own children to attend. To see what one of our schools says about us click here.
Benefits for the Child
Children will learn new gross motor skills through fun and exciting movement. New lesson plans each week ensure that there are always new skills to master and this creates a sense of anticipation each week. Having themed lesson plans also creates a fun and exciting atmosphere and allows the child to remember and share special stories with their families.
Benefits for the Parents
Parents will love the convenience of TUMBLEBUS. Working parents continuously struggle to make the most of limited family time and balance hectic schedules. Often there are not enough hours in the day to get the kids to their many extracurricular activities. TUMBLEBUS FITNESS serves as the "vehicle" to bring the activity to your child... without cutting into valuable family time.
At TUMBLEBUS FITNESS safety is the number one priority. Instructors are thoroughly trained to assist the children in activities that are age appropriate. Carol Wendling, President, is a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. She recently completed courses titled "Silly Willy Workouts" "Fit Play - Building Healthy Lifestyles for Kids" and Fun Fit Games for Kids". Her goal is to help realize that being fit is FUN!
When the Bus arrives at the daycare or school, the engine is shut-off and the on-board generator handles all power needs for climate control, music and lighting. Parents and Staff are welcome to observe class activities at any time from the viewing area in the front of the Bus. TUMBLEBUS FITNESS is fully insured.
