It’s finally here! Today, a good friend of mine (aka my former boss) and I are starting a new website/blog. Chris, my partner in this project, is a former professional gymnast who now directs a gym in Manhattan where he trains kids from ages 18 months-14 years. He is an awesome Dad, super active, an incredible teacher/coach, the best boss I’ve ever had, and seriously knows his stuff. When I left NYC, we knew we’d eventually work together again, and have now found our opportunity.
Between the two of us we have many years of working with children and families in various educational settings and each have a serious passion for keeping kids fit and active. Over the summer, Chris approached me with the idea of starting a website to encourage families, especially ones with young children, to get active. I loved the idea and we decided that our focus is to reach out to families around the world and help them find ways to start healthy habits for their children from the very start.
We are staring with a blog to tell our own stories, give advice and to educate everyone on the importance of getting kids fit. Our goal is to expand to a website where we can offer skills and exercises for specific ages, plans for certain disabilities or weaknesses, meal plans and recipes for kids and a support system for families.
I’m so excited about this new project! Wish us luck!
