Athletic Revolution-Hilliard General Fitness Program
It is difficult to turn on the television set and not see the reports on how many of the youth aren’t eating healthy, thus contributing to rising obesity. With bad eating habits and a propensity to eat junk and processed foods, children are often at risk of being obese. At such young ages, obesity is dangerous and in some cases life-threatening.
As a responsible parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child eats the right kinds of food. More to that, kids and the youth should be actively engaged in sports that allow them to exercise their bodies and get fit. Instead of accepting obesity as a reality, we should work to ensure that the youth are more active in their young lives.
Obesity brings with it a myriad of physical and psychological problems. Youth who are overweight are in danger of developing heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and other weight related problems. The additional weight becomes a problem on the joints, which makes it an issue for overweight youth to participate in sports. However, the most glaring of problems is lack of self-esteem and related confidence issues. It is a sad reality that overweight kids are prone to bullying from their peers, which thus affects their self-esteem. When young kids can’t accept themselves or feel confident about their appearance at such an early age, they don’t have a lot of success building their characters or expressing their feelings.
So what can be done to prevent childhood obesity and the dangers that accompany it? For a young kid, the obvious solution is to eat right and engage in an active lifestyle. Instead of waiting until they are in their 20s to start exercising, the kids can engage in meaningful activities that will keep them fit and active. As a parent, one program that you can consider is the Athletic Revolution youth fitness program.
Athletic Revolution has put together an impressive package of activities and sports programs that kids from ages 8-18 can engage in to keep them fit. The activities are geared towards helping youth maintain an ideal weight, while also improving their speed, agility, strength, quickness, and power. Kids can choose whichever sport they would like to play, from volleyball, baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, track, and hockey, among others. And the good thing about the program is that kids get to learn from some of the best trainers in the world. Every young kid that walks into an Athletic Revolution training program gains invaluable knowledge on how to play their favorite sport, and more importantly, how to keep fit at all times.
Even if they never play a sport in the future, kids need to be active. YOUR child needs to be active, the benefits of a physical exercise program are too valuable to ignore. It is your responsibility as a parent to get them off the video games and television and into a regular exercise program.
The benefit of being fit at an early age is that you reduce the risk of developing any weight related diseases and ailments. You are taught the kinds of healthy foods to eat, so that your body is a high performance machine that survives on healthy food for fuel. By following the right diet, you are able to perform better even in class, and your concentration, analytical thinking, and decision-making skills improve significantly.
Perhaps the obvious benefit of being fit is being in great shape. You are at the perfect weight for your age; not too lean, and not overweight. You get to appreciate your image, which then translates to improved levels of self-esteem and confidence. You can stand in front of your peers without any fear of ridicule about your weight, simply because you have chosen to engage in an active and healthy lifestyle. With improved self-esteem, you are more confident in the choices you make in life, the relationships you build, and the work you do in class. Overall, your life improves.
