Think of your favorite athlete, the one you look up to most. Have you ever thought about what they’ve done to get so fast, strong, or
powerful? Have you ever watched them in their sport and felt like you want to play like they do? Guess what! You can and as long as
you work hard, you will! In the Celebrity Athletes virtual class, we will research chosen athletes, their workout routines, and their
training schedules. Then, we will complete these workouts together as a group! Anyone that beats Coach A. in the workout, either by
finishing earlier or doing more repetitions in a time limit, gets to pick the celebrity athlete’s workout we do next!
We will also take a look at the recommended amount of physical activity for our age group and the benefits that come from regularly
meeting these recommendations. Then, we will become personal trainers and create an effective training schedule for a partner that
includes workouts with exercises specific to that person!

                                              (9:30 – 11:30AM) Nutrition for Kids

Have you ever felt tired in the middle of the day? Do you feel hungry a lot of the time? I know this may sound crazy, but often times,
those things happen because we aren’t getting what we need nutritionally! Did you know that there are 6 essential nutrients that should
be found in the food we eat every day? Did you know that most Americans do not eat the recommended amount of each nutrient every
day? If we want to feel happy and energetic, sleep well, and find it easier to achieve our goals, we have to pay attention to what we put
in our bodies! We only get one!
In this class, we will learn about the essential nutrients, recommended daily amounts of each for our age group, and food products that
are good sources of these nutrients! As a group, we will discuss why someone’s goal should not be to get skinny, but to get healthy.
We will take a look at and compare nutrition labels from common household foods, evaluate whether the brands that advertise as
healthy actually are healthy, and create a weekly meal plan for our families on a specific budget, using store circulars and websites to
stay within that budget.
Equipment Needed: Access to Google Classroom and Google Meets (Gmail Account)

                                              (1:30 – 3:30PM) Nutrition for Kids

Have you ever felt tired in the middle of the day? Do you feel hungry a lot of the time? I know this may sound crazy, but often times,
those things happen because we aren’t getting what we need nutritionally! Did you know that there are 6 essential nutrients that should
be found in the food we eat every day? Did you know that most Americans do not eat the recommended amount of each nutrient every
day? If we want to feel happy and energetic, sleep well, and find it easier to achieve our goals, we have to pay attention to what we put
in our bodies! We only get one!
In this class, we will learn about the essential nutrients, recommended daily amounts of each for our age group, and food products that
are good sources of these nutrients! As a group, we will discuss why someone’s goal should not be to get skinny, but to get healthy.
We will take a look at and compare nutrition labels from common household foods, evaluate whether the brands that advertise as
healthy actually are healthy, and create a weekly meal plan for our families on a specific budget, using store circulars and websites to
stay within that budget.

If you haven't tried yoga, or if you tried and found it boring, you may like this more active type of power yoga which combines yoga
with pilates --it will tone your body and calm your crazy mind. Pilates was invented for injured war soldiers (men!) to strengthen their
core (abs!). However, it soon caught on as a great exercise for athletes and dancers as a way to tone the muscles. Many dancers,
football and baseball players do pilates. When combined with the stretching and meditative aspects of yoga, the work-out becomes a
complete mind/body experience.

                                                  (1:30 – 3:30PM) Power Yoga

If you haven't tried yoga, or if you tried and found it boring, you may like this more active type of power yoga which combines yoga
with pilates --it will tone your body and calm your crazy mind. Pilates was invented for injured war soldiers (men!) to strengthen their
core (abs!). However, it soon caught on as a great exercise for athletes and dancers as a way to tone the muscles. Many dancers,
football and baseball players do pilates. When combined with the stretching and meditative aspects of yoga, the work-out becomes a
complete mind/body experience.
With 1 registration, family is welcome to participate.

film!
