Long Island Personal Trainer Joins The Battle Against Childhood Obesity

What an amazing experience!!!

I’ve never had so much fun this weekend in working with the Junior League of Long Island. This powerful group of women had planned for the last 8 months their annual Kids in the Kitchen event to assist Long Island children in living a healthy and active lifestyle. The passion and care that went into this event for the children was unbelievable and highly applauded.

Breakthroughs To Fitness was honored to be a part of this event. The children did everything from doing bear crawls on the floor, playing monkey tag, running around, participating in Tug-of-War, and learning proper exercise techniques.

The smiles and laughter on their face brought back such great memories of being a kid and evoked that feeling that life is about having fun and playing games. Long Island Children are in need increasing their physical activity, knowledge of nutrition, and their understanding of proper movement patterns.

Below is a short clip from the event. My hope is that after watching this video, you too will seek an opportunity to join an event like this or make an impact in a child’s life. Do something out of the ordinary for a child this week. If you have any stories on how you’ve impacted a child’s life in being more healthy and active, please let us know in the comment box below:
