School’s back in session & that means more sitting for a population that needs to move to be mentally & physically healthy! Have you been keeping your kids active this summer? If so, you may be concerned about how to keep that up now. Students need at least 60 minutes a day of movement. If your student is not in involved in a sport where are some ways to keep them active. Get them outside, turn the TV off , start the day off with a stretch. We are the only mammals that don't do that! Animals actively stretch automatically when they get up.

Loop, swoop and pull or two rabbit ears? It’s something most of us do every day and something we have been doing since we started school. Every day as we get ready for our day, we put on our shoes and tie our laces. We all have this one habit in common, a habit that was taught so young, we never thought anything of it. There are many ways to complete the task; however, we all must secure our shoes. Now I am sure you are wondering why I am rambling on about different ways to tie our shoes, but I have a point. Most habits are acquired young.
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.
