When Abil meets uRobic

Pics from google

This is my boy on uRobic


Abil got his first taste of uRobic at my cousin's house. He sat on it for about 15-20 minutes and he enjoyed it very much. I think it is a great machine for a special kid like him (aged 5 and above).

uRobic is intended to burn fat around your waistline, butt, thigh and also improves cardiovascular fitness. To me, it is a simple machine that simulates horse riding movement. The best thing is, you can ride this 'horse' indoor.

Horse riding has been known to benefit special children. A real horse riding is a therapy which promotes responses, communication and social skills. It also improves motor and sensory skills.

A horse riding works every muscle on your body, which explains why it do wonders to people, especially the 'special ones'. Nonetheless, one (with health problems) needs to seek expert's advice before starting a riding program.

As for uRobic, I think it is a good exercise tool and shares at least 50% of the health benefits of a real horse riding. This gadget is definitely on my wish list.

I have my eyes on this too, iGallop

These products costs around RM1000-2000.Must start saving now. A regular horseback riding therapy for my children is on my wishlist too.

A special thank you to my cousin(the host) for the food, the hospitality and the short session on uRobic. Too bad Kak Dina missed her chance and she is really looking forward for our next visit so that she can try it too! :-)

sian kak dina.. x merasa naik 'kuda' tu..cam menarik je..mmg kesannya cam naik kuda jugak ye.. saya x pernah amik tahu pun sebelum ni. saya tgk alat tu cam xde fungsi istimewa je..tu la..kaji tidak, main assume je kan. nsb baik syida tls artikel ni. Kalu x sampai sudah jd bodoh sombong..hehe..

Azma,menunggang kuda memang dah terbukti manfaatnya pada semua, lebih-lebih lagi pada anak istimewa. lagipun, ia sunnah Nabi kan?

fungsi alat-alat tu dan persamaannya dengan menunggang kuda adalah berdasarkan pemerhatian saya. saya pun tak tahu samada ada kajian sebenar dibuat tentang alat itu dan aktiviti menunggang kuda. cuma, kalau nama diperhatikan nama i-gallop tu pun ada kena mengena dengan kuda.

apapun, terima kasih atas komen :)

Betul...naik kuda banyak kebaikannya. Saya pernah terbaca artikel, kalau yg nak slim pun amalkan naik kuda ni. Tapi bukan semua org ada peluang dan masa utk pergi naik kuda sebenar.

Sebab tu agaknya uRobic ni dicipta....tapi mahainyaaaaaa....
