As responsible adults and fitness professionals, it is our duty to ensure that the youth of today are gaining sufficient exercise and are living healthy lives. There is a tendency for youngsters to stay indoors with their Smartphones, gaming consoles and TV. While small doses of this are acceptable, our children should also engage in regular exercise to keep fit and to broaden their horizons. While youngsters should not have to worry about completing strenuous exercise daily, a regular fitness group meeting would suffice and will have great benefits. Exercise will help keep them fit, it will also give them social interaction and a change of scenery from school or home.
As a fitness professional, you could really make a difference by offering a youth fitness class as part of your repertoire.
