The girls had a triathlon this past weekend at the Air Force base, which was a lot of fun for them. One thing I noticed while I was there is how many kids were competing as compared to the adult one just a few weeks earlier; there must have been 50 -60 kids as compared to the 20 or so at the adult one (which Angela won by the way). There were more than a few overweight parents cheering on their little athlete while sipping on a 500 cal "Latte". Next time you are at the park or play ground check out the parents vs the kids. What I think you"ll see is happy active kids with overweight parents sitting on the sideline setting the example. I guess my point is how can we expect the child weight, health, activity and type II diabetes problem to get better when the parents aren't even setting a good example.
Unhealthy parents don't make healthy kids.
If you have time watch the video he makes some good points.
Our youth fitness program is coming soon.
