Phone Addiction and Youth Training – Be More Active with Less Screen Time!

Help the younger generation engage in fitness and spend less time on their smartphones!

There is an increasing amount of concern in today’s world about the amount of time the younger generation is spending on their smartphones, tablets or gaming. This holds true for all ages. We are becoming a nation of phone addicts! While technology is beneficial, and smartphones are changing the way the world works, we should still seek to keep fit, stay active and spend time away from a screen.   It is extremely important for the younger generation to participate in regular fitness activities to help combat obesity, and so they can enjoy a healthier lifestyle that will benefit them through later years. Helping youngsters keep fit is a very worthwhile venture and you will feel rewarded that you have made a genuine contribution to society.

ASFA® offers a Youth fitness instruction certification that will allow you to branch out into this area of the industry.
