“I figured if no one was going to provide affordable fitness programming to youth, I might as well step up and take the lead. How can we teach kids to be healthy if they can’t afford the programs? I believe providing effective fitness programming for youth should be a community effort, not a business opportunity.”
In February of 2012 I quit my job, sold my car, and set out on a journey with a goal so large in scope it seems insurmountable – eliminate childhood obesity. I was tired of seeing kids being poisoned with unhealthy foods and no support structure to build a healthy foundation.
My son experienced some name calling at school and the Youth Combine is giving him his self-confidence back. He feels strong and in control now. He is even setting goals to do something in the fitness area when he grows up.
My son is a new member and I have had a hard time getting him interested in physical fitness. He has gone a couple of times and is already feeling more self-confidence and taking more of an interest in becoming healthier and more physically fit.
Todd pushes himself in youth combine. He competes against himself and is encouraged. He's learned a lot about nutrition as well and pays attention to food labels.
Bill's legs are like tree trunks and he looks leaner. He is really more confident and trying to make healthier food choices. He talks about your program and looks forward to it. I know he is wearing his Combine t-shirt today!
Youth Combine really helped prepare me for what running was going to be like at High School, and I feel like I had a leg-up on the other freshmen on the team because of what I've done at Youth Combine.
