Next Tuesday’s episode of Shark Tank on Channel Ten will feature a Dubbo man who’s not afraid to bite off more than he can chew.
Former school teacher Kim Macrae created iKiFit in 2003 with the intention of introducing it to the “world”.
Fourteen years later it is being delivered in a growing number of preschools and early childhood centres in numerous NSW cities and towns including Sydney, Tweed Heads, Orange, Dubbo, Parkes, Forbes, Narromine and Coolah.
Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs pitch their projects to a panel of potential investors, may be the national boost that Mr Macrae is seeking for iKiFit
On Wednesday he told of accepting an invitation to be part of the show believing it would lift “exposure”.
“We’re ready for it to become bigger,” Mr Macrae told the Daily Liberal.
“The training programs are tried and tested..and we have got great people.”
They train teachers at preschools and early childhood centres to teach iKiFit to young students.
An exercise program involving music and sticks, iKiFit ignites the “imagination” and promotes “positive behaviour”.
Mr Macrae said his first national television appearance was “98 per cent an excellent experience”. “It was exciting, fun and challenging,” he said.
