Workout Notes: 

  • It's been a while since we did a good burpee workout. 
  • This will be short for a couple of you. If you are one of those who will go under 20 minutes, you'll need to do this at "Ludicrous Speed." Like, seriously. You need to go fast. Then go to the rope jumps. 
  • If you do it right (and you are ready for it - not one second before), you should be coughing all day after this. 

Nothing inspires me like watching children workout. 

NOTHING.

Years ago I began offering workouts for kids at a gym I used to co-own called "Fit Zone." But it was a flop. 10 yrs ago parents weren't ready to sign their kids up to "workout." Many told me they'd never sign their kids up for a workout, that they'd rather just sign their kids up for sports and keep them active, which was super cool in theory. In practice, kids continued to sit home and play with their screens. 

Today that trend is even worse. There are lots of contributing factors to this. One of which has to do with a marked decrease in Physical Education classes offered at the school level. When I was a kid, I had 1 hour of each day devoted to P.E. Now, I think, my kids have an hour of P.E. every Thursday. I'm not joking. Some curriculum writer somewhere believes an hour per week of organized physical activity is enough to stimulate an promote health in the lives of our youth. (Don't get me started) Another reason has to do with the rampant watering down of children's sports and activities. The "everybody is a winner" mentality that permeates children's sports and activities might be helping them all feel entitled to pleasant emotions, but it is doing very little for promoting improvement of their physical health & skill development through healthy competition. 

None of this is to mention the role technology and automation play in entertaining our kids vs. just several years ago. They just don't play actively like they used to. Due to all of this, our children, more than ever, need healthy balanced physical activity.    

Enter ... GPP Kids.
