Should My Child Exercise?

Short answer? YESSSS.   I’m fairly certain most are familiar with the following recommendation; children and adolescents should get at least 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day.   Did you know that less than 24% of kids ages 6-17 meet this requirement?  While it was alarming to read, it’s not surprising […]

I hit a nerve

So earlier this week I made a post on my Facebook fitness page about obese children and how it pisses me off. Medical issues notwithstanding-children should not be obese.  I still stand by my opinion.  The manner in which I expressed said opinion was not the most PC but I refuse to take it back […]
