I think, in the big scheme of things my children are pretty active.Winter is tough though, especially this half rainy, half snowy start of winter where they really can't go outside. But summer, they're always outside doing something.
Children rarely have a reason to play outside anymore. A new reliance on technology has them completing all their school projects on a computer, playing games on a console, texting with their parent’s iPhones and looking at a screen. That’s why it is important to get your children outside of the house and start getting them active, especially during the winter.But when your kid would rather do anything except exercise, what can you do?

January 29, 2014 Thanks to everyone who donated their time, energy, talents and money we were able to raise enough funds to pay for our 501(c)(3) application! As you know, the purpose of this event was to raise funds for the Athena Fitness, Alpha Force volunteer program nonprofit application. The willingness to help displaced women and children in our community gain access to fitness and wellness services makes all the difference for our organization and community.
In the wake of a New Year and our personal resolutions, we sometimes forget about what's best for the others around us. In the case of parents in the United States, their kids should be a top priority.
