Fitness Tip of the Day!
Exercise and Obesity
Rates of walking and cycling were analyzed in 14 countries. Rates were highest in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Spain, and lowest in the US, Australia, and Canada. Not surprisingly, the rates of diabetes and obesity were lowest in the countries where people did the most walking and cycling. (source: Am J Pub Health, Oct. 2010)

6 Fit Kids' Workouts is an exercise DVD for kids ages 8-12 years, at any fitness level.

• Ideal For:  kids ages 8-12 yrs, any fitness level.

CONTENT

This exercise DVD provides 6 choreographed aerobics/dance routines:  four are 5-min in length, and two are 10-min in length.  These routines are combinations of specific exercises found on other DVDs by Judy Howard, a physical education teacher.  In addition, there are also 6 "Health Tips" (each only several seconds in length) where Judy Howard instructs kids on topics like rehydrating, stretching, and eating healthy after a workout.

Judy Howard holds bachelors and masters degrees in education.  In addition, these DVDs are the only kids fitness DVDs approved by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.  Currently, Judy's exercise DVDs have sold more than 30,000 copies and are used by more than 5000 schools in North America.

• What I Liked:  She makes exercise look fun.  Her enthusiasm is infectious.

• What Could Be Better: The Health Tips are helpful, but is it realistic to think that young kids will monitor their heart rate during exercise?

SUMMARY

This is a very useful exercise DVD.  I recommend it for kids and young adolescents.
