Today’s podcast features an interview with Mr. Todd Hensley, the Exercise Science teacher at Mammoth Middle School. The title of the podcast seems weak based on the wealth of information Todd Hensley shared in this interview.
Science is suggesting that if our nation’s kids keep moving in this health direction, many of them may not outlive their parents.
1 in 3 kids are at risk for obesity and children as young as 8 years of age are showing heart disease.
Physical inactivity is the 4th leading cause of death behind blood pressure, tobacco and high blood sugar. Exercise can reduce diabetes by 50%, reduce cancer risk and slow down the aging process in us parents.
Todd Hensley is a forward thinker. He understands as an educator and developer of his unique Middle School Program that kids only get one body. His mission is to ‘provide students with the owner’s manual to the one and only body they will ever own’. He shares all of his insights and passion into creating this public education program that’s been effectively running for 10 plus years.
- why exercise rituals may determine their long term health outcome
- what is the key to making our kids be successful at health and exercise. Hint: it has nothing to do with team sports.
- what we parents can do to improve our children’s health outcome.
Come listen. Spread the word and be well.
P.S. Bone broth was briefly mentioned in our interview but the tremendous benefits were not. Oops! Bone broth and meat stock are chocked full of amino acids, known as the building blocks of protein, necessary for repair and recovery.
