(Not for spinning in!)
So why did you switch to a spinning pole? The obvious answer is that I’m happy to stay on a treadmill while working out with my kids. If my kids wanted to come to the gym, I could just spin the pole in my kitchen.
But when they have school in the morning, I want to be in my rocking chair by now! With all the time I save, I think I could do with some exercise in my day.
Why? Let’s find out…
How do most children train?
I recently attended another exercise class at the local school. A group of seven kids showed up to workout. The teacher recommended a “touring swing” and I was sold on it. A lot of kids use it, especially when they’re in the gym.
What makes a spinning pole different?
There are a few things to consider when installing a spinning pole. I’ll start with why you don’t need one in your kitchen.
First, for the same reason I think it makes sense to use a spinning pole in your kitchen (and not your basement), it’s not recommended for kids younger than 10.
Second, kids get up quickly when on a spinning pole. You should be comfortable with the idea of a child spinning while they’re on the wheel.
Third, since kids are so used to spinning that they can’t stop moving by themselves, kids need to be on a stable surface and not on the road on a treadmill.
Fourth, while kids on spindles get much of their energy from the air around them, if that air is very hot or very dry – say under 100⁰F – they can get more efficient spinning speeds if they’re on a standing pole, because the movement doesn’t need to be constant.
So how do your kids go about working on their spinning pole?
Kids on a stationary wheel can spin the pole with an exercise bike. They just move the feet of the bike around to keep the bike spinning. Another option is using a stand to keep the wheels spinning. You don’t have to use a stand – just stand on the pole so the wheel doesn’t move. And when you get a little older, you should be able to hold a spinning sphere without the wheels. But if you have children older than 10, get some sort of exercise to increase their muscle endurance and keep them active.
