Fight Inactivity with Exercise

My Students

"At the moment, it looks like we’re losing the fight against inactivity and obesity in our young people. We are raising the most sedentary and unhealthy generation in American history: Its members may have the dubious distinction of being the first generation not to outlive their parents."

One of my favorite quotes is, “Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive And Believe It Can Achieve” by Napoleon Hill.

Our students have tasted failure so often that they do not believe they can succeed. I have watched these kiddos grow leaps and bounds once they BELIEVE they can achieve their goals.

My Project

As part of our fitness program students will learn about nutrition and the benefits of physical fitness. This Olympic bar will allow students to safely train their bodies to be fit and active. Students will learn that if they put their mind to a goal and believe in themselves then they can be successful. The confidence built in the gym will further boost their confidence in the classroom.

Over the years of working with at-risk youth, I have watched them change once they BELIEVE they can be successful.

Once our students BELIEVE they can be successful they begin to try and their confidence increases. I am looking to increase the opportunities for students to reach that point where they believe in themselves. If we can get them to believe in their abilities and enjoy physical activity then the opportunities of the world will be within their grasp.
