Medical Fitness Association Conference Wrap-up

On November 30th Right Fit’s owner, Suzanne M. Gray and special needs fitness director, Sheena Leedham, took a trip to New Orleans to present at the Medical Fitness Association (MFA) 21st Annual International Conference. Suzanne and Sheena gave a presentation titled “The Proper Environment and Power of Play for Autistic Populations” in hope to spread the word on the importance of exercise and play for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. “Our audience enjoyed the content and really wanted information to improve their fitness efforts when dealing with these populations in the schools, community centers and hospital wellness programs.”
Check out some pictures of their trip. In addition to having a successful presentation, you’ll notice they enjoyed delicious food and perfect weather in the beautiful and charming city of New Orleans.

Don’t Become Another Statistic.

Childhood obesity is on the rise. Visit any shopping area, school or restaurant and it’s plain to see that our national statistic stands to be true. Yes, the statistic that states, one in three children are overweight or obese. What’s most alarming is children learn from what is modeled to them. The actions of parents, siblings, and media mirror the decisions our children make. As a society that lures more to plant and secure happiness and contentedness, this same notion is being applied to our eating demands. As a double whammy this same logic is being applied to our yearn for technology, which in most cases, leaves us immobile, with no ability to efficiently burn the excess calories consumed. It’s a cycle that continues to increase the fat percentage of our children and adults alike.
