“Dance is my way of exercising! It keeps me fit. This is my first year in company. I tried out and got in! Now I can’t stop moving. I love dance! This is from my daughter Emma’s journal. She’s 9 and well, she loves to dance.
On the next page she wrote, “Today I exercised at 7:00 am with my dad. He had to wake me at 6:20. Even though it was early, I still got up because I love it and it’s so much fun…. I love my dad!
Every Sunday I run a group class in Ridgewood, NJ. I ask my kids if they’d like to come, and 9 out 10 times they do. My kids see me eat healthy and exercise almost daily, and they see that I love what it does for me. I never want them to suffer from depression, being overweight and feeling helpless, like I did years ago. That’s why I help them find a healthy lifestyle for themselves.
Often parents ask me, “How can I help my kids be healthy?” ”Lead by example”, I say. Tie in what they love to eating healthy and exercising. Make it fun and give them autonomy. Give them the gift of great health.
