So much going on.  Let me quickly recap all of the excitement.  So far this Fit Club, we’ve done a sleepover on Sullivan’s Island and then participated in a fun run, we’ve been bowling, swimming, skating, and had a personal training session, worked out with the Wando Football team and the College of Charleston Men’s and Women’s Basketball team, had some one on one training with the Porter-Gaud Varsity Volleyball team, and had guest instructors including yoga, karate, and soccer.  It’s been incredible watching their transformations.  We’ve got kids losing 10, 15, and 20 plus pounds, and their mile times have improved by 5, 10, and even 15 minutes in some cases.

The list of improvements can go on and on.  Of course, a big THANK YOU goes out to our volunteers.  We also would like to say thank you to the Piggly Wiggly.  This past weekend we met up at the Pig on Saturday morning with several volunteers and nutritionist, and had our store tour with the John’s Island Fit Club kids and parents.  20 plus kids and parents learned that it’s all possible.  The low fat, high fiber diet on budget, and we can do it!
