Bellevue Personal Training | Active Kids Equals Active Healthy Adults

The sad truth is that kids are neither as active nor as healthy as they were 20 years ago. TV, video games, ipads, phones ~ all pull our kids in a more sedentary direction. We have only to look at the skyrocketing rates of juvenile obesity and diabetes to see that this is true. Poor nutrition often accompanies a sedentary lifestyle. These conditions, and more, can be much improved by encouraging an active lifestyle. The experts say that specific behaviors and tendencies among the young translate into active (and healthier) adults.
