You’ve seen spy films and TV shows. You’ve mastered video games and apps where you have to conduct a covert operation without being caught. You’ve got the mindset for espionage but there’s more to being a secret agent than the desire to snoop. You need the physical co-ordination of a dancer – and this exercise for kids will get you to be up there with the best!
Think of the skills these heroes need to be successful spooks—coolness under pressure, lightning fast reflexes and of course peak physical condition to dodge traps and escape from the enemy at the last second! You can hone your own special ops tactics at home. Start practising for your career in the CIA or the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6)(or for your plans to become a jewel thief!).
Imagine that you’re the only agent who can get the data to break a secret code in time to save your boss who is in enemy hands. Now imagine trying to slip cautiously and smoothly through the criss-cross of red laser beams that protect the floor of a vault that holds top-secret codes. You’ll need your quietest athletic shoes, your closest fitting clothes, and your nerves of steel to break in and reach the flash drive you need without tripping the alarm that will bring armed guards into the vault to capture you!
Dig in the closet for some old party supplies because they’re all you’ll need to build yourself a practice run. Those partial rolls of colored crepe paper that your mom used to make streamers for a birthday party will become a stand-in for the motion detecting laser beams of a high tech security system. Convert your hallway into an obstacle course. It’s easy to set up and there are endless ways to compete with it alone or with friends—race against the clock, crawling, no hands, with lights out or blindfold.
