Its no secret that we have a huge problem on our hands. Less than 25% of the youth engage in the minimum physical activity recommendations. Some experts believe exercise deficiency in adolescents to be a global pandemic. In fact, youth today, for the first time in human history, will live shorter lives than their parents. Meanwhile, increased physical activity in youth has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression, enhance a childs emotional and social well-being, and improve self-esteem. (Source: ACSM)
Fortunately, here at Perpetual, we don’t see problems, we see opportunities. Which is why we are excited to announce Perpetual Impact, a first of its kind program designed for parents and children to improve their physical health and emotional state, all the while strengthening their connection. The first series will be for mothers and daughters (grades 5-8).
“The increasing prevalence and severity of childhood obesity may reverse the modern era’s steady increase in life expectancy, with today’s youth on average living less healthy and ultimately shorter lives than their parents–the first such reversal in lifespan in modern history.”
—Daniels SR, The consequences of childhood overweight and obesity.
Throughout the program, both Parents & Daughters will take part in 1-hour sessions designed to get the mind & body into peak state through our instructor-led workouts, while also learning & growing through topics such as:
-What we focus on, we feel–and how gratitude is the ultimate antidote.
-Compassion & Self love: Your how-to guide
-The internal language we use and the influence it has over us
-What a healthy relationship with food looks like (and doesn’t look like)
-Self-esteem and Confidence Building Exercises
-Vision Casting/Vision board group activity
Included with the program will be a Free t shirt, a free journal & an amazing experience!!
Every week we will have small activities for everyone to complete that will go along with that week’s theme.
