Is It Any Good?

You can't knock GoTrybe for wanting to do a good thing -- get kids inspired and excited about fitness. However, at around $30 for a year's subscription, it's an investment families have to consider carefully. The standout features have to be the exercise videos that let kids work out with trainers their age and the interactive features that let kids compete to log in the most fitness time. Parents might find this site more valuable, as the blog offers simple and nutritious recipes and advice on how to keep kids healthy. On it's own, GoTrybe might not be enough to keep you in shape, but it is cheaper than your average personal trainer.

Online interaction: Users can connect with friends and add them to their Buddy List. From here, they can send messages to each other. There is also a message forum where users can post questions and advice. There are no clearly outlined guidelines for these features, so inappropriate content might get through. There is also a chat feature for the oldest high school users.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
