A few months ago I was contacted for a great opportunity to teach running mechanics and speed development at Bellarmine High School in San Jose, CA. Bellarmine High School is a storied academic institution and a powerhouse athletic program in San Jose and the C.C.S (Central Coast Section) with many championships and accolades.
Since the nice weather is with us now, it's time for the kids to put down the game controller and start getting active outside. If your kids aren't active, now is the time to start so that fitness becomes a way of life for them into adulthood. It's recommended that youths get an hour of activity every day!! But it's also important to remember, kids aren't small adults...they're kids! Their bodies are different and have different capabilities and respond to exercise differently than adults.A few things to consider:
Think being THIN is healthy, NOT SO FAST...
Women, it's time to reassess your views on being that size 6 and being HEALTHY. One thing I see everyday in my personal training clients as well as my LIFT TO THRIVE SENIORS especially the WOMEN, is this on going belief that "SKINNY IS HEALTHY, AND THICK IS FAT AND UNHEALTHY." But this is just not true.
