131: Speed Demons—Youth Fatness to Youth Fitness

Time Block C - Friday, 11:00am-12:50pm
Presented by: Brett Klika
Session Format: Workshop

Childhood obesity in America has grown at an alarming rate in recent years. With physical education programs being cut, and youth athletics becoming oppressively competitive, how can non-athletic youth learn that fitness can be a fun, non-competitive positive experience? This workshop will discuss the issues behind the epidemic of childhood obesity, but most importantly, demonstrate games, drills and motivational techniques to create a fun, non-competitive fitness class for youths, regardless of their athletic ability.
