Yes believe it or not but lack of movement is labeled as the “silent killer”. If you really look at your daily activity you might find a big majority is “sitting” .Yes we have become a screen viewing society and many just lack movement with a combination of poor nutrition is a DEADLY combo.
As you are aware, I’m sure, people who work in an office tend to sit down ALL DAY LONG, and even if they have worked out in the morning (like at your boot camp), they still might be very sedentary during the day. Here’s a typical example: Get up and go to Steve’s boot camp with your day starting at 4:30a.m.
If you look at your life schedule with children. It could be even more lack of activity. Driving children to their activities and sitting and watching activities..in general we have become even more inactive the more involved our children become. On the go makes us even more open to grabbing food on the go and foods with preservatives.
4:30a.m -5:00 – SIT in car on way to Good Life Fitness
5:00-6:00am — Boot Camp at Good Life Fitness
6:00-6:30am – SIT in car going home
6:30-7:30 – ready for work
7:30-8:00 – SIT to go to work
8:00-11:30 – SIT at work
11:30-12:30 – lunch (SIT most of it)
12:30-5:00 SIT at work
5:00-5:30 – SIT on the way home
5:30-bedtime – dinner, SIT to read/watch tv/help kids with homework, e.t.c.
That’s 11 hours of sitting, not including the sitting time after 5:30p.m. Lack of activity…YES belly fat and flat butt syndrome:) Amazing when you really break down your daily activity like above.
GOALS: Get up and move around through out the day. How about a ergonomic desk that allows you to stand? How about taking a walk or better yet go to the gym over your lunch hour? How about go for a run/walk when your children are at their practices? Your daily goal is 10,000 steps per day!!Share it!

Youth Sports Training Program
Each child, or group, will have a specific training program specific to their needs as athletes. We will do fitness testing during the first session measuring strength and speed, and then periodically throughout their training program to monitor progress. This program will contain strength, endurance, agility, plyometric and speed training specific to each athlete and sport. Our goal is to use this more individualized training to instill proper technique and enhance skill level in the athlete, so they can carry this on to their sport.
AGILITY TRAINING: Agility training as an athlete is very important. From youth athletics all the way up to professional, it is very important. For example, some benefits:
- Aids in injury prevention
- Improve multi-planar coordination
- Increase heart rate and blood flow
- Increase mind-body connection
STRENGTH TRAINING: Strength training is important for all athletes, not only for power lifters, or football players. For example, some benefits:
- Increase bone density
- Increase calories burned while resting
- Increase muscle tone
- Increase explosiveness
SPEED TRAINING: Speed training is not only for sprinters. All athletes that are involved in sports with quick bursts of running or moving can benefit from speed training. For example, some benefits:
- Increase calorie burn
- Improve your VO2 max, or your body’s ability to use oxygen
- Increase your body’s ability to oxidize fat
- Trim time off of your running/sprinting times
PLYOMETRIC TRAINING: The goal of plyometric training is to train for maximum force production in the smallest period of time, so reps are kept low and the intensity and effort is high. All athletes can use plyometric training to improve all parts of their game. For example, some benefits:
- Increase explosiveness
- Increase strength and efficiency of fast twitch muscle fibers
- Improve maximal strength performance
- Increase stamina
- Increase speed and power

Nothing worse than injuring yourself our having a child injure themselves while playing sports. You know, if I hadn’t injured myself 6 years ago, I might not be so convinced of the importance of injury prevention. I now believe whether you’re a student or an adult athlete, or someone who’s simply on the road to fitness, injury prevention should be one of your main goals. It’s definitely a by-product of a effective program for a healthy lifestyle.
“Go to a boys’ basketball game and listen. You’ll hear the floor squeaking. You won’t hear that sound at a girls’ game. That’s because boys will be playing and landing with bent knees,” says Dr. Patrick Hurlbut, Lincoln Orthopedic Surgeon.
That difference, Dr. Hurlbut believes, is the most practical reason girls are four to six times more likely than boys to suffer ACL tears. Doctors have proposed a number of other explanations such as hormonal influence, a wider pelvis which might influence the stability of the knee, and a slower neuromuscular reaction time. Dr. Hurlbut thinks it’s the way girls play sports. “It’s natural for boys to play sports with bent knees,” he says, “but girls are more likely to come to a stop with straight leg and not as likely to land with soft knees when they jump.”
As long ago as 1999, Dr. Hurlbut read an article in a medical journal advocating plyometric training for young female athletes to prevent ACL trauma. The article stoked his interest in injury prevention, an interest that remained. Dr. Hurlbut was personally interested in finding someone who shared his passion and interest in a type of training designed to lessen the epidemic having two younger daughters involved in sports.
Hurlbut says, “Sports acceleration programs for student atheletes have become increasingly popular, but I’ve seen a lot of damage from these programs that just push kids until they puke. I treated one girl who suffered chronic knee pain from just three months of training. There is no evidence that strength training prevents ACL injuries, but with training that emphasizes bent knees including plyometrics, injuries can be reduced by as much as 69%.”

Girl Athletes Need Training to Protect Knees, Doctors Advise
By Maggie Fox
More kids are tearing up their knees playing sports, pediatricians said Monday, and they have some advice for parents: consider extra training for your young athletes.
There’s been a rise in diagnoses of a specific injury to the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, a team of experts writes in the journal Pediatrics.
The increase is particularly dramatic in girls who play high school soccer, basketball, volleyball and in gymnasts, the American Academy of Pediatrics says. Girls suffer two to six times more ACL injuries than boys in similar sports, and are more likely to have surgery than boys, the group says.

Girls are at special risk of ACL injuries, the American Academy of Pediatrics says.
But special training can help strengthen the muscles and help the student athlete develop habits that can prevent injury, the pediatricians found.
“Neuromuscular training programs strengthen lower extremity muscles, improve core stability, and teach athletes how to avoid unsafe knee positions,” said Dr. Cynthia LaBella of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, who led the team that wrote the report.
Girls are at higher risk of ACL injury because as they grow after puberty, they don’t gain much more muscle power, said Timothy Hewett, an expert in ACL injuries at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and a member of the team that wrote the report.
“After puberty, girls have a ‘machine motor mismatch,’” Hewett said. “In contrast, boys get even more powerful relative to their body size after their growth spurt. “
An ACL injury is no joke.
“An ACL injury at an early age is a life-changing event. In addition to surgery and many months of rehabilitation, the treatment costs can be substantial ($17,000–$25,000 per injury), and the time lost from school and sports participation can have considerable effects on the athlete’s mental health and academic performance,” LaBella’s team wrote.
And a 13-year-old girl with an ACL tear may suffer chronic pain into her 20s or even 30s, LaBella said.
But the injuries can be prevented with specialized training. “Plyometric training combined with technique training and feedback to athletes regarding proper form were the common components of programs that effectively reduced ACL injury rates,” they wrote.
