Redmon Kids Exercise Equipment

Updated on December 2, 2014

Redmon Exercise Equipment - The Fun Workout for Kids

Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment for Kids is a range of exercise equipment that has been created to suit young children between the ages of 3 and 8. While fun is the focus, it's never too early to introduce children to a healthy lifestyle through a nutritious diet and regular physical activity.

If you work out at home and have young kids, I'm sure you know how hard it can be to deter them from wanting to use your exercise equipment. While it's great to encourage their interest in fitness from an early age, it's not so great to have to deal with a child who is constantly interrupting your workout by asking if they can have a go on your treadmill, elliptical walker or exercise bike.

Kids can be very persistent when they want something, so it may be tempting to give in to them just to get some peace, but allowing your children to use your exercise equipment, particularly the younger ones, is not a good idea. The exercise equipment you use is built for adults, not children, and allowing small kids to use it will jeopardize their safety.

Investing in workout equipment that has been specifically designed for children, such as Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment, will mean you can work out in peace, and your child or children can have fun doing their own workout, just like mom or dad.

Redmon Exercise Equipment - The Safe Workout for Kids

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has estimated that on a yearly basis approximately 8,700 children under the age of 5 sustain injuries from home exercise equipment. And just because a child is older doesn't mean they are safe from injury. According to the CPSC, around 16,500 children between the ages of 5 and 14 sustain injuries each year while using exercise equipment designed for adults. The most common of these injuries include bruising, cuts and bone breaks from falls, along with friction burns.

There have also been instances of young children approaching their mom or dad from behind while they are working out, getting their fingers or hand caught under the mat of a treadmill or in the chain of an exercise bike. Injuries related to this range from cuts, crushed or broken bones, friction burns and even amputations. It's vital to keep a close eye on young children to ensure they don't come in contact with your exercise equipment while you are using it.

While not every child who uses exercise equipment made for adults will sustain a visible injury while doing so, working out on equipment designed to be used by taller and heavier people can result in muscle and joint strain. It's just not worth the risk!

Kids learn by example, and what better way to set them on the path to health and fitness than by giving them the means of exercising beside you on their own treadmill, stepper or bike?! Buying them their own exercise equipment will mean you will be able to get on with your own workouts as you spend time with your kids sharing a fun, healthy activity.

Three of the most popular items in the Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment for Kids range are their Treadmill, Air Walker and Happy Bike, all of which I discuss below.

Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment For Kids - Happy Bike

The Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment For Kids Happy Bike is a stationary bike that will allow your kids to cycle regardless of the weather. But don't let that fool you into thinking they will only use the Happy Bike when it's too cold or wet for them to play outside! As with Redmon's other exercise machines, the Happy Bike has a digital odometer which fascinates and engages kids to the extent that you will be hard pressed stopping them from wanting to use the bike often throughout the day.

Measuring 21 1/2" x 14" x 26 3/4", and weighing just 8 1/2 pounds, you will have no trouble moving the bike around if that is required. As light as the bike is, its frame is manufactured from powder coated steel, resulting in a bike that is capable of supporting a weight of up to 100 pounds.

The handlebars are covered in foam, for comfort. The seat of the bike can be adjusted to suit the height of the child, and the tension can also be adjusted to suit the child's strength level, resulting in a low-impact exercise experience.

Set up takes around fifteen minutes, and all of the necessary tools are included along with batteries for the odometer.

Redmon Fun and Fitness For Kids Exercise Equipment - Treadmill

The Redmon Fun and Fitness Treadmill is a CPSIA approved treadmill that has been designed for children between the ages of 3 and 8. It provides a low impact workout that won't stress young bones or developing muscles, and because it is manually driven, the child using it can work at his or her own pace.

The Redmon Fun and Fitness Treadmill doesn't take up a lot of room. Measuring 37 3/8" x 36 5/8" x 41" and weighing in at 41 1/2 pounds, it is easily transportable yet very solid. While you can relax knowing the treadmill is very stable and has been designed not to tip, young children should always be supervised when working out on this or any other exercise equipment.

The frame of the Redmon treadmill is made from solid steel that has been powder coated using lead-free paint, while the body consists of steel that is wrapped with foam or plastic for your child's comfort and safety.

The Redmon treadmill has an odometer which shows the time, speed and distance of the workout, along with the calories burned. This feature is a big hit with kids. Batteries for the console are included in the purchase price, along with all of the tools needed for the easy set up which most people accomplish in around fifteen minutes.

Redmon Fun and Fitness For Kids Air Walker

The Redmon Fun and Fitness Air Walker is a low-impact elliptical trainer for kids. As with all of the Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment range, fun is assured, but make no mistake about it, your kids will get a great cardio workout while using the Air Walker as they burn off excess energy. The foot rests are non-slip, allowing your kids to exercise with confidence and you to be able to relax as they do.

Measuring just 26 3/4" x 16 5/8" x 31 1/4" and weighing only 26 pounds, the Redmon Air Walker is very compact and can be easily relocated if need be.

The frame of the Air Walker is made of solid steel, powder coated with lead-free paint. The working parts are covered with foam and/or plastic.

The Air Walker has an odometer which kids love, as it enables them to see how long they've been working out, their speed, distance traveled and the number of calories they've burned. Batteries are supplied, along with the tools to assemble the machine. Assembly takes around 15 minutes, so your kids can be doing their first work out on the Air Walker in less time than it takes to eat dinner.

Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment for Kids - The Pros and Cons

Reviews on Amazon for the Redmon Treadmill, the Redmon Air Walker and the Redmon Happy Bike are overwhelmingly positive.

While a couple of people needed a replacement model due to the equipment arriving damaged, this was taken care of promptly.

Some people report that the Redmon Treadmill they received had an unpleasant smell. Further investigation revealed that the cause of the odor is most likely to be the lubricant used on the gears of the treadmill. Leaving the treadmill in the open air for a few days got rid of the smell in the vast majority of cases, though a couple of those who left feedback reported that it took a little longer for the smell to disappear.

A couple of purchasers of the Air Walker noted that it developed a squeak over time. This was easily remedied by applying WD40.

Owning one or more pieces of equipment from the Redmon Fun and Fitness Exercise Equipment for Kids range will allow your children to build muscle tone, improve their co-ordination and enjoy the aerobic and cardiovascular benefits of working out, without compromising their safety as would be the case if they were to use equipment that is too large and heavy for them to operate.

      @lkamom: I only found out about the range fairly recently myself. Kids spend so much time inside these days on the computer or watching TV or DVDs. Getting them interested in exercise at a young age has got to be a good thing.
