It’s been some fuzz in the news lately about the Kid-E-Fit. According to the European newspapers the experts are in anger, saying that weight lifting is dangerous for children under 15-16 years of age. Unfortunately the newspapers has missed to interview all the other experts that claim that it’s not dangerous at all to lifting weights at young age.
Personally I’m not keen of anything that tries to take away the child in a child. But, it can be just as fun working out and lifting weights as playing football or do gymnastics. The danger lies not in the activity itself, it lies in the adults attitude towards the activity.
So, if your child want you to buy the Kid E Fit bench press – just do it. But don’t buy the bench press because you want your kid to get fit and kick everybody else’s kids ass.
