A Healthy Lifestyle for the Whole Family at the Parenthood Wellness, Sunway Pyramid

Children learn best through play and Mommy Jane definitely agreed with this. Getting them to move at the same time to release all that positive energy in them, will help them up in their growing-up period instead of playing smartphone and tablets at home. To encourage my Little Angels and myself to start a healthy lifestyle, Mommy Jane had attended the official launch of Zac & Zibbo for kids gym and WiO, Power Plate Hub for adult fitness at the Parenthood Wellness at Sunway Pyramid as a one-stop family fitness centre.
Established in 2014, Zac & Zibbo was designed to create a fun and nurturing physical learning environment for children of various ages. Zac & Zibbo is a one and only kids' gym in Malaysia that provides circuit training with their very own mini-version of workout machines designed for kids. These machines are designed and manufactured to interact with kids through seats with ergonomic back and sensors to ensure correct posture and exercise counter display that allows our child to interact with the machine. The usage of these machines at Zac Adventure programme is catered for children aged 6 - 12 years old.

The program will build our child physical, cognitive, social and emotional skill which in turn leads to building self confidence.
