GILBERT, Ariz. -- Parents and kids across the Valley are getting a "jump" on fitness, with new "Bounce Boot Camp!"

Founded by a former NFL player, Bounce Boot Camp is the first company in the world that combines the fun of inflatable obstacle courses, castles, and slides with a great fitness program for everyone.

Bounce Boot Camp promises to put the “fun” back into fitness, and create a memorable experience for all ages and groups.

"It's basically changing the minds of the kids," says Ricky Muro of Bounce Boot Camp. "It's all about changing the mind, and keeping them focused on fitness, and having fun at the same time."

Bouncing in the inflatable equipment is not only fun, it has been shown to improve cardiovascular health, core strength, balance, and coordination.

The program utilizes inflatable castles, slides, obstacle courses, and other interactive equipment. It also can include leadership training, nutritional counseling, strength building and cardiovascular conditioning.

Kids not only have fun, but they can get fit, develop athletic skill, flexibility, dexterity, agility, and endurance.

The inflatable equipment is custom-made. Classes also implement other equipment such as cones, balls, hurdles, quick foot ladders, and the signature Battle Ropes.

Each class is set up differently, providing an element of surprise and excitement as well as teaching kids how to adapt to new challenges.

"It's not a traditional sport," says Ricky. "It's a boot camp, very interactive, and families seem to love it."

The first School to implement Bounce Boot Camp new program is Charlotte Patterson Elementary in Chandler School District.  Since childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years, Bounce Boot Camps offer an alternative method to involve parents and children to stay active and have fun. 

"I think we're always open to new ideas, unique ideas
