Review:
A little bit of misnomer, "My Gym at Home" is more of an activity for moms to guide their young ones to their first exercise regimen. The DVD is paced like an expensive baby gym class, but all of the exercises can be performed in the comforts of home. Aimed at children six months to three years, the program is really about interacting with your baby and keeping them stimulated on an age appropriate level. This is not a park your child in front of the TV type of program. Each activity is short in length (so as not to over exert) and incorporates graphics music and nursery rhymes. Basic maneuvers such as rolling over and somersaults are taught with care, although the head standing sequence and boat arching exercise should be attempted with much caution. Like real life, not all of the kids featured cooperate, but taken at baby's own pace, it could serve nicely as a daily bonding ritual, and a way to set good habits for all.
