Mar. 29, 2013 – TORONTO, Canada — Hangtime Fitness is Helping Canadian Educators Fight Obesity in Children
Health and Physical Educators Focus of Youth Fitness Summit
Hangtime Fitness is hosting Canada’s first ever Youth Fitness Summit May 4th and 5th at York University to unite HPE Educators with the youth fitness industry by providing a solid leadership and defining voice within the field of youth fitness education.
Toronto, March 27th, 2013 – Over the last decade or so, we have witnessed the deterioration of our kids’ physical activity and fitness levels to the point where health risks for kids have skyrocketed.
Experienced HPE teachers accustomed to teaching groups of students who for the most part were physically active by nature, have suddenly found they’re working with kids who have limited or no physical activity experience whatsoever.
Many HPE teachers, and school officials, just weren’t ready, willing or quick enough to adapt to changing realities and the growing threats of youth inactivity and obesity. What once worked to build a successful school fitness program, no longer does. And what once worked to engage students and bolster participation has become ineffective in light of today’s fitness research and training and development methods.
David Kittner, Director of Education for Hangtime Fitness, states “In the history of the youth fitness industry, there has never been a greater convergence of need, awareness, desire, low barrier opportunity, product education, and voids in the lives of our youth waiting to be filled.
He goes on to say that “as an HPE teacher there has never been a better time than right now to launch, re-invent, grow, expand and strengthen the fitness programs within their schools.”
Hangtime Fitness has assembled several of the youth fitness industry’s top leading experts including keynote speaker and author of Spark, Dr. John Ratey, to help HPE Educators become the best at delivering youth fitness programs within their schools.
Hangtime Fitness was founded by fitness equipment professionals who saw the need to get back to basics, and to get people active in a fun, group environment. Our mission is to bring the leaders of the youth fitness and education industry together and raise the level of fitness education and coaching we are providing for the youth in our schools. Hangtime Fitness is a North American company with operations in Canada and the USA.
