GeoMotion’s three product lines all utlize multi-sensory, movement based activities to make physical fitness fun while contributing to enhanced learning and brain development and making physical exercise fun starting as an early age.

Leslie DeRuiter-Hudson, AzAHPERD President, stated,: “In 2007, I purchased the GeoFitness mats for my school with grant money.  One of the goals of the grant was to increase physical activity through innovative equipment.  Our K-5 students and staff love the GeoFitness mats.  We use them for fitness, dance and games.  You can use them so many different ways and we see every day a positive change in our students.  They are definitely worth the money.”
