A recent study found that children as young as 8 years old are already expressing dissatisfaction with their bodies. Kids fitness programs may be one solution if you’re concerned about the implications of children having a negative body image so early in life.
Experts are concerned about the findings because they didn’t expect to see these issues in children so young. This is also one of the first signs that boys appear to be as vulnerable as girls. You may remember a survey by the Girl Scouts a few years ago that found 31% of girls refuse to eat so they can lose weight. Here, young boys were even more likely than young girls to be trying to manage their weight.
CF Fitness has shown up to schools all over southern California to raise awareness on how not to be so self conscience of your body structure. It’s about having fun and everything else will take care of itself. Your Metabolism is moving rapidly at their age.
