Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
As obesity rates soar to unprecedented heights in children, now more than ever a focus on physical activity is paramount to encourage healthy living at an early age. Children are now being diagnosed with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes due to poor eating habits and inactivity.
In order to halt these staggering rates from normal occurrence to non-existent a fresh approach to encourage children to love exercising can become a daily habit just like brushing their teeth. Inspired by his love of helping others, certified personal trainer Bulsby Duncan decided to create Alpha Fit; a company targeting young children through creative activities with interactive content. Self- published by Mr. Duncan, the first project to debut is “Jacob’s ABC’s of Exercise”. The lead character, Jacob a young child full of energy demonstrates fun movements incorporating each letter of the alphabet to complete a full workout.
As Jacob progresses to each letter he also describes the exercise type to the audience. The book focuses on the various components of fitness such as aerobic, balance, flexibility, strengthening and stretching. At the end of the workout the child can track his/her progress with an included goals worksheet.
“One of the first memories a child learns is the alphabet song,” explains, Mr. Duncan. “In the same way he recalls the rhythmic flow of A-B-C I want to connect an activity that can alert the body to always want to move. Our children are sitting down for far too long! To remain fit you have to initiate fitness as a pattern as early as possible. ” Mr. Duncan is passionate and determined to make an impact on the community at large by promoting the importance of physical activity to nurture early childhood development. Jacob and his group of friends, the “Alpha Fit” kids will be a great addition to curriculum and current health campaigns aimed at staying fit and active.
