A New Exercise Program to Get Children Strong

For many kids, playing kickball in the backyard and biking to the park have given way to watching television, playing video games and spending hours on the computer. The question many parents are asking themselves are “with the holidays quickly approaching, how can I keep your children active when they are home from school?”
It’s never too late to get your child a lifelong appreciation for activities that strengthen his or her body!
Katina Taylor, (Vice President of the Jason Taylor Foundation) has created a ten-week series of video exercises to correspond with the Get Active! program. You can take a look at some here:

The fact that this series is produced in partnership with Strong Women, Strong Girls gives a unique angle and maps back to a larger need to help kids get active and healthy; since the start of the program, 10,000 girls have participated!

Strong Women, Strong Girls is a nationally recognized mentoring program dedicated to raising the aspirations and self-esteem of elementary school girls. The program connects girls with college women and puts them on the path from the classroom to the boardroom—or any other path they choose to take. The program is also building a movement that creates cycles of mutual empowerment for women and girls who are committed to positive social change.
