One of the most challenging things for parents to do is get kids and teenagers moving. Childhood obesity often becomes young adult obesity. Getting children started on the right track in fitness and wellness is essential to curbing this trend. For this course, Jane Curth has partnered with Phil Hueston, an expert in youth fitness. Named IYCA Coach of the Year for 2012-13, as well as the author of Alchemy: Where the Art and Science Collide in Youth Fitness (2015), Phil brings experience and energy to this engaging course about making a difference in children’s lives everywhere. Whether a child is overweight or is a prospective starting athlete, this course will teach you everything from structuring a program tailored by age to methods of motivating and inspiring kids to be their fittest and healthiest selves.
