Have you ever tried to get your kids to train with you, and they just do not want it?
Your prayers have been answered. I have found a way to keep your kids moving, even if you get a great workout!
I spent the day with my two nephews and their friends. I love the way they move in spastic, stupid dances. At first I thought my nephews liked to dance and they had good moves to show off. I did not know that this is a general trend, thanks to the video game. FORTNITE: Battle Royale. They got involved and presented their special weapons to let me know what it was all about.
If you're a parent with children ages 8 to 18, you've probably heard of the multiplayer online shooter game FORTNITE: Battle Royale. But if you do not have kids like me, this could be a new concept for you as well. So I'm going to make sure I enlighten you about the latest trends, and never look it out when you're on the move, like a & nb; & nbsp;. (A & # 39; nub & # 39; is a term for a freshman with zero experience.)
WHAT IS FORTNITE
Basically, you kill people and break out in a dance. That's what I thought when I first watched the game ̵
FORTNITE is an online video game developed by Epic Games. It's a massive online brawl in which 100 players jump from a flying bus to a small island and then fight until only one player stops.
Weapons and special items such as rifles, traps and grenade scrubbers are hidden all over the island, where players have to arm themselves while exploring the landscape and buildings. Players collect these resources or "loot" to build structures to hide or defend themselves in the country. As the game progresses, the playable area of the country is constantly shrinking to bring the participants closer and less spots to hide. The goal is to be the last survivor to win the game.
Yes, FORTNITE is a multiplayer shooter game. The goal is to eliminate people, but not in a violent way. From my nephews we learn it as a "non-violent victory". The shoot is very bright and friendly and shows no bloody violence. It's a more mature shooting game that puts them in a non-threatening, unrealistic game world.
V-Bucks is the game's own currency. It's like gold … everyone's trying to make money to unlock new items without paying a dime. However, buying a Premium Battle Pass gives you access to exclusive clothing and staggered items that are exposed to weekly challenges to obtain more accessible items.
Although the game is free, V-Bucks are earned or can be purchased through the Emote Shop. Players can buy the coolest weapons, gear, dances, and other items with the V-Bucks, so that your character or emote stands out in the most interesting way.
With V-Bucks, the game earns money throughout the season, which takes place in December. Then a new season starts and a new passport has to be bought. (For your information: Battle Royale is divided into squadrons, with season 6 running through December.)
It's like learning a foreign language. There are so many words and concepts that I have to learn so that I will not bore you, but I recommend you to watch the slang. The most important ones to know are "Nub" and "V-Bucks". Since parents do not always want to look like a nub, you can motivate your kids with some V-Bucks this holiday season! I DO NOT suggest using it as bait instead of using it as a special prize to stay active or achieve something big.
Involved Players and Team Building
The game can be played alone, with a friend or a group of friends playing as a duo or squad. This is cool because it adds a social element that allows players to chat with headsets and microphones while they play, which is good communication skills for kids.
As long as playing solo can be fun, the essence of FORTNITE lies in its team mechanics, whether it's building bases, sharing loot, calling out enemy locations, or defeating enemies together. When playing with others, communication is important. Typically, the teams that communicate best are the ones in the final.
Some children come together to practice the game. There is also a non-competitive mode called "playground" where they meet to practice or even do their own activities like a new triumph.
Here my mind began to smoke, thinking about how to connect children and parents with movement by referring to the world of the other. Children want to play and interact with their friends, parents want to be heard and promote an active lifestyle. Here you (parents) can get creative and introduce a little "FORTNITE Fitness Action" (FFA) with a contest of creative dances and useful exercises that you can create and execute. (Read on to receive the FFA training.)
WHAT MAKES CONTINUES: BATTLE ROYAL APPEARS
It's amazing what appeals to not only children but adults too! Here are some reasons why it's so popular:

- Social element

These are all reasons why the game is fun and and has made it a big hit with the famous video game YouTuber and Streamers that your kids can follow.
MEME MOVES aka Hot Dance Moves
Dancing is one of the best forms of exercise and I'm thrilled to see people of all ages collapse. It is "normal" to dance everywhere and reminds that exercise is important in daily life.
I have seen children (adults too) being ripped off in school yards, in parks, at sports events and even in the grocery store! This cult appeal has conquered the world and caused more people to be moved off the couch. Many of FORTNITE's "Emote" dance moves are inspired by real world influences from famous movies, shows, songs, and other viral phenomena.
I found it fascinating to learn about these dances and their origins. Here are a few memo moves to update your dance mode terms:

I urge you to set up your own train in Walmart's check-out line! Who knows, your train could become viral and be the next meme dance step!
Bodies should be in motion, especially when it's fun. Team up with your kids to get them started and move on by referring to something they enjoy. Set up a Boot Camp style with several different stations, alternating between a total gym exercise, a bodyweight exercise, a cardio workout, and a dance movement. The person in the entire gym counts 10 repetitions, while everyone else performs the other selected exercises! Then turn to the next station until all are executed. Perform the warm-up and cool all together. Here's a quick example:
WARMUP DROP ZONE:
* Repeat or select 4 different stations
COOL DOWN VICTORY:
If one Bootcamp is out of the question with your children, just turn on some music for them so they can move as you get into your own Total Gym zone. The goal is for everyone to laugh, talk and keep moving for a while. Hey, if you can not beat them, you might as well join a dance!
This video shows how to get a great Total Gym workout while your kids keep moving. See also if you can identify the FORTNITE dances shown by my nephews!
The following exercises are included in this video:
- Sweater Crunch
- Bicycle Crunch
- Straight Leg Loose  Stretch with two legs
- High kneeling rows and reach
- High traction + static rows
- Torso rotation
- Hug of a tree
Do you play FORTNITE or do you want to move with the latest games? Then combine a workout with a game that your kids love. After completing a Mini & # 39; FORTNITE Battle Bootcamp & # 39; sing "Victory Royale" too!
The genre of Battle Royale will remain and will evolve into larger and better modes over time. Stay up to date and move at your own pace!
Happy Holidays and let the Games lead you into the New Year!
