Get on the floor and give me 10!
(Get on floor, do 5ish, then stop) Whew! That’s a work out!
You’re only half way, you can do it!

I, XXX, came up with an idea dealing with fitness in November, after our visit to the Omaha convention. After having this idea I couldn’t wait to get started. I asked XXX to become a part of this project to show that two ordinary teenagers can help make a difference in others’ lives. Not only did we want to make a difference in others’ lives, we wanted to make a difference in ours. Ever since I can even remember, my dad has been overweight.

XXX and I took this into initiative and started our project Getting Fit with FCCLA. Our schools today play a critical role by establishing a safe and supportive environment with policies and practices that support healthy behaviors. They also provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity....
