Finally, I get to the gym. My inner thighs…well look away if this too much for you. They are so sore. Like someone has been hitting them with bricks.
I was on the elliptical today, when the local trainer from the gym brought in a 13 year old boy. Mind you, these are my favorite kids: slightly out of shape, probably eat crap food, want to get healthier, not great scores in PE. I taught PE in Jr. High for 4 years, and am now doing 1st-6th grade. This kind of student really inspires me. Why?
Because, I see myself in their eyes. I could never compete, was really uncoordinated. But, at least we had fitness. It was the 70s. It was mandatory…but, where has real fitness and fun gone?
So, I have this idea. You know how those expensive tutoring clubs meet after school? They help with homework, and promise to bring up scores? What would happen if we could help kids bring up their fitness scores, and improve overall health?
I have a dream. That all the non-fit great students could actually change their life one day at a time. Hmmmm….
