TYRONE, BLAIR COUNTY - Being fit is more than just exercising. It means taking care of the inside too. And at Kids In Motion in Tyrone, Blair County, kids are learning just that.
An energetic Haylee says, "It helps us keep thinking and just keep trying on things you can't do and to think and say good things about yourself."
Coach Julie Kosoglow wants her girls to fall in love with being
Healthy and fit through this three-part fitness, health, and confidence class.
As Kosoglow explains, "Kids In Motion I really feel is filling a void within our society. We have seen just increasing rapid rates of obesity; one in three kids in America is obese or is over weight and that is really alarming to me."
The program has four levels of intensity and since each changes - kids can take the same class over and over again.
What Coach Julie really wants her kids to know, is that they can do anything- as long as they believe in themselves.
One of their many exercises includes the chant: "I can do it!" Another Kids In Motion kid - Olivia says, "I love the chant! I think its very fun. It gives us the courage to do what we can do tonight."
