Last week I had the honor of interviewing soccer star and mom of three, Mia Hamm about kids and fitness. As a mom of six kids, and someone who spends more time at the library than the gym (and it shows!), I am always concerned about ways to keep my kids active.
Moms, we are fighting a big fight in working to keep our kids active! kids today have more homework than ever, and when they come home to unwind, they often follow their parents’ example and unwind with a heavy dose of technology. (Guilty as charged). Add to this, the trend of parents being prosecuted for allowing their kids to play outside, and you see that things are much, much different from when we were growing up.
So sit back, and listen to some great tips from Mia Hamm! When you are done, take a moment to enter the easy giveaway! I have two LeapFrog Leap Band fitness trackers to giveaway, so two of my lucky readers will be winners!
The afternoon of fun at Santa Monica Beach is sponsored by LeapFrog and all of the registered participants will receive a LeapBand Fitness Tracker(which is super cool!) and a goody bag.
A fun and active beach event featuring soccer legend and official LeapBand spokesperson Mia Hamm, and more than 300 children attempting to become the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® holder for three active play records: hopping on one foot, sand angels and the swim dance!
I wish I could be there, but as a North Dakotan, I am more into snow angels than sand angels! However, I WILL be conducting a phone interview with Mia Hamm on Monday! Leave any questions regarding kids and fitness that you would like me to ask her in the comments!
And watch for a fun LeapBand giveaway coming soon!
