CONSIDER THE DOORWAY GYM.
- Everyone has a doorway.
- Can be used by any age and ability.
- Easy to make.
- Easy to install.
- Costs little.
- Doesn’t take up any space.
- Can be used in many different ways.
Home School and in School
Studies find that kids focus and learn better if they have physical outlets to relieve the stress of sitting. The doorway gym can be installed in the classroom doorway as easily as in the home doorway. One first grade teacher installed the doorway gym which offered her students numerous innovative ways to develop their muscles, relieve stress and have fun too.
A chinning bar in the doorway is good, but limited. The doorway gym is only limited by your imagination. Instead of just the chinning bar at the top, the doorway gym allows you to either move the bars or add bars at different levels.
Supports at two inches above the floor are put in horizontally so that you can put your feet underneath and do bent knee sit-ups.
Littles can be challenged to step or crawl over.
Ten and Twenty Inches
At this height kids can go under or climb or jump over. Adults can use the board to do sit-ups on a slant.
At this level kids can hang, do pinwheels, skin the cat, and chin ups with legs straight out in front and heels resting on the floor.
Four Inches from the Top
The top bar can be used for chinning and let downs. A let down is how you begin if you can’t yet do a chin up.
Add two rubber straps for stretches.
ENJOY. Once started there will be no end to the “tricks” you and you family will invent using this simple tool to stretch and strengthen your muscles.
