READY SET MOVE! Fitness Program for Youth Struggling with Obesity

Suzanne will be speaking on Thursday, April 3rd, 2013 from 11:45AM -12:45PM in St. Louis, MO at the 2014 AAHPERD National Convention & Expo.

Obesity and problems with being overweight are growing concerns in our society. For many children, playing with others may be difficult because of issues with weight and body image. This energetic presentation will review strategies and appropriate exercises and games along with nutritional and lifestyle check-ins for families to work together as a team. We will discuss opportunities to change habits, and take charge of their lifestyle choices, as well as examine assessment protocols and discuss reward systems to encourage motivation and enhance self-confidence.
