New Year’s Resolutions

G3 Health and Fitness Can Help

The New Year is a revitalizing time for reflection and goal setting, not only for you but for the whole family.  Studies show that the top New Years resolutions are about weight loss, and exercise.

Since one-third of families are fighting the growing epidemic of childhood obesity, why not resolve as a family to take on the G3 challenge, to “Get Moving, Get Knowledge, Get Healthier and Strong.”

Start with simple and fun exercises to Get Moving. Sign up for an up-coming G3 Zumba class or simply start walking. Walking is exercise! Walking prevents type 2 diabetes, strengthens the heart, is good for the brain and bones. Walking is a way for families to spend quality time together and it helps alleviate anxiety. It has also been reported to reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer.

Resolve to spend quality time with your family in the kitchen too. Here are a few quick, healthy snacks you can try together.

  1. Rocky Road: Break a graham cracker into bite-size pieces.  Add to low-fat chocolate pudding along with a few miniature marshmallows.
  2. Mix together ready-to-eat cereal, dried fruit and nuts in a sandwich bag for an on-the-go snack.

 

G3 Health and Fitness understands that to win the fight against Childhood Obesity the whole family must be involved. Our mission is to offer fun exercise classes, and provide Health and Nutrition education in the community. We will expand our program to include Parent/child classes. Exercise classes is good way for the family to spend quality time together and Get Healthy and Strong.
