Yes, I was a fat kid. 100lbs in 3rd grade. 230lbs by my senior year. That’s me at my 5th birthday party with Darth Vader. Notice my belly.
“Husky”or “Big Boned” were the kindest words used to describe me.
Here is a story I have never shared with anyone…
I remember one summer being invited to a pool party at a friends house. But what I really remember being teased because I was the only kid at the party who left his t-shirt on in the pool.
I said it was because I was sunburned, but I can now be honest – it was because I was fat.
My “friends” all gave me a good teasing. I played it off as no big deal at the party, but went home and cried.
I am now 42 years old and I still have to pysch myself up to take my shirt off at the beach or at the pool.
Like I said – those words can stay with you for a life time.
You do not want your kid to be that kid.
So let’s make sure this program is right for them -just ask you son or daughter if they would be interested in..
So yeah, I was teased. But worse than that I just felt uncomfortable in my own skin. That is a feeling that stays with me to this day. It is also why I got into this fitness & health – to help people feel better about themselves while changing their bodies for at the same time.
Add to that that I am now a parent, and one of my boys is built JUST like me. I do not want him to have to deal with the same crap I did growing up.
So that is also why one year ago I started Fit Generation – my youth fitness training program. To help kids get fit, get lean, stay healthy all while having a great time.
So parents if you think your son or daughter age 10-17 would benefit from a program that is
