A very valuable question. Why should we lift things which do not seem to be created to be lifted??? Sand bells are not that easy to hold on, their content continuously moves, leaving us out of balance, and they tend to suddenly and unexplicably become heavier on the side we were them not expecting to... Well, to be honest, all of the above ARE the reasons for which we, actually, should befriend these sand-filled bags and play with them at regular intervals! They are tough to get a grip on them: therefore, your grip is just going to get better from trying to hold a sand bell.

I do not mean the extra pounds you may or may not have; rather, the unhealthy conditions that come from being sedentary.
I recently read a post on Facebook written by IDEA Health and Fitness Association, which prompted this blog. The posted question was:“The biggest misconception about fitness professionals is…”As you can guess, the answers came flooding in… After reading all of the posts, I soon came to the conclusion that "We Are The Same Person" but we have made different choices! Let me explain!
Being a Christian PE teacher isn't always the easiest job. I speak to my classes about the type of people they hopefully want to become, and goals they want to achieve, but as a public school teacher, I have to be careful about expressing any political or religous views.
