At Kinder Kicks, parents and children exercise, learn, and bond during get-togethers that fuse age-appropriate activities with applicable life lessons, from sharing to traffic safety and self-control. Three different age groups—Remarkable Me, Jumping Joey, and Leadership Lion—divvy up the action for newborns through 4-year-olds, with each tier focusing on skills and principles that are easily digestible for its participants.
Remarkable Me sessions, for instance, offer tactile, auditory, and visual stimulation for toddlers while their parents engage in cardio- and strength-training workouts. As kids advance, so does the curriculum: by the time they reach Leadership Lion status, youngsters are practicing basic martial arts to develop a positive attitude toward physical fitness and learn how to kick through their bedroom's forcefield when they're grounded. Little ones are ushered through this progression by friendly instructors, along with The Remarkables—a team of animal characters that makes visits all the more enjoyable.

Recently, their company celebrated its 20th anniversary, and their fleet has grown to more than a dozen boats, and the business has whisked more than one million passengers through Orlando's nearby wetlands.

During the all-day event, buoyant competitors from around the globe take to the tides in a battle for points, which amass over several months before determining a champion and winner of a novelty-size mustache comb at season's end.
