Who Runs the World? A Guide to Encouraging Kids to Run

According to the CDC, the obesity rate has quadrupled in the past 30 years. And, with the obesity epidemic sweeping the nation (especially within children), it is more important than ever to teach kids about health and exercise. Children are extremely impressionable and often imitate what parents do, thus making it immensely important to instill healthy perceptions of fitness early in life.  

Our society tends to focus too much on what a person looks like, tainting the image of a healthy body. Instead of harping on having the perfect body or looking a certain way; teach your child(ren) the importance of why exercise coupled with a healthy diet is so crucial to longevity, overall health, and happiness.

Foam Rolling: A New Way to Stretch

You know you’ve had a good workout when the next day or two your muscles are sore. However, you may feel you’ve gone overboard if your muscles are so sore that you can barely walk or lift your arms. Sometimes all you need to do is a little bit of pre- and post-workout stretching to alleviate some of the muscle soreness you’re experiencing. After all, nothing is worse than having to skip a day of working out because you’re too sore to move. 

Even the most avid fitness junkies will skip the stretching portion of a workout. To many, it feels like a waste of time – after you’ve put in an hour or two of hard work the last thing you want to do is sit on the floor and stretch! But research shows that it’s one of the most important elements of a person’s daily exercise regimen. Not only does it decrease the risk of injury, but it also helps muscles work more effectively by increasing blood flow and allowing for full range of motion. Luckily, there is now an amazing tool that many fitness advocates suggest using as part of your daily stretching routine to get the most out of your muscles and dramatically decrease soreness: the foam roller.
