Fitivities - The game that moves you

It’s a huge achievement to win the infulential PTPA Seal of Approval. We’re looking forward to sharing Fitivities and our new award at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair this weekend.

Fitivities™ has been awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved™ (PTPA) Winner’s Seal of Approval, an award that has been rated the most trusted seal by more than 22,000 parents across North America. Independent parent volunteers from PTPA Media’s testing community evaluate products in their own homes to ensure that PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations. As a result, the PTPA Media™ Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value.

Fitivities is an indoor/outdoor family fitness game that can be played with two to 24 players. Teams race to complete physical activities such as shadow boxing, doing the twist, jumping jacks, etc. while trying to stay ahead of their competitors. The spinner board dictates how many reps each team must do before rolling the dice to advance around the board. Players between the ages of 6 to 60 years and from all fitness levels will have fun playing and will receive the added health benefit of physical activities.

Creator and life-long fitness advocate Sandy “Spin” Slade is passionate about transforming physical activity into a fun, group experience for all ages and fitness levels. After more than two decades of entertaining Chicago Bulls fans and worldwide audiences, Slade created the Skillastics® game series which has so far helped move more than 10 million students in 20,000 educational settings around the world. Slade introduced Fitivities in August as a way to bring fun and fitness into the home.

“It’s a huge achievement to win the influential Seal of Approval from PTPA Media Inc.,” said Sandy “Spin” Slade, president of Sandy Spin Slade, Inc. “We’re looking forward to sharing Fitivities and our new award at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair this weekend.”

Fitivities was among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal.

“At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” said Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and web sites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”
