Fox 5 Fitness for the Family: Fit Fathers & Kids Being Fit for a Healthier Generation

Fit_Kids_Fit_Families...014It was a beautiful and energetic morning in Washington, D.C. for a cadre of dads and their beautiful and active kids. Why? Because Fox 5 invited Fit Fathers and Kids Being Fit in studio for a poignant news segment discussing family fitness and nutrition in support of Global Youth Service Day in partnership with The Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

Good eating in combination with active living is a precursor for long-term, positive health.

The kids were super-excited and enthusiastic all morning long. [Read more…]

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 10.25.54 AMIn today’s technologically-driven society, where never-ending work demands and over-connectivity have become the “new normal,” health, nutrition, quality family interaction and exercise are being neglected. Fast food, sodas, gaming and digital communication have supplanted home-cooked meals, adventurous family vacations, reading, direct personal communication and active living. With this wave of mass digital confusion and lack of healthy living, kids, for the first time, are expected to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. [Read more…]
