When Sabrina Bryan showed up on Dancing with the Stars, my daughter went nuts. I had no idea who the blonde bombshell was until my 7 year old informed me that she was a “Cheetah Girl” in that tone that suggests I should have been paying attention. While we were crazy for So You Think You Can Dance last summer, we’ve never fallen for the Dancing with the Stars until this year.
Healthy Kids Fitness Challenge
The Healthy Kids Fitness Challenge is committed to promoting a healthy body image for young girls as well as combating childhood obesity. It turns out that Sabrina Bryan has joined up with Healthy Kids Fitness Challenge in the production of a hip-hop fitness DVD. Her workout is called Byou (Be-You) and it’s a team effort to make healthy choices a fun opportunity for girls between 7 and 17.
My daughter is already hip to the idea because she takes a hip hop class every Tuesday. According to a press release regarding the new hip hop workout video, Bryan described herself as a girl who went through the “I hate my body” thing. She credits sports and dance activities as how she created balance for her adult life.
Female fitness starts with self-confidence and faith in yourself. You can give your daughter the same confidence through positive reinforcement and helping her to discover what will work for her. If she likes the Cheetah Girls, you might check out Sabrina Bryan’s new workout video – if it’s half as fun as her Dancing with the Stars dances, chances are you could have as good a time as your daughter.
What have you done to promote fitness and a healthy body image with your daughter lately?
