Experts recommend children should get at least 60 minutes ofphysical activity per day, and now there is a place where localchildren can do just that.
Kids Core Fitness is the first gym on the Central Coast designedspecifically for kids.
The gym and resource center located in Arroyo Grande focuses onfitness, nutrition counseling and lifestyle management for kids ofall ages.
Research has shown that regular exercise not only helps childrento build strong bones and muscles and maintain a healthy weight,but it also can help them to feel less stressed, sleep better atnight, be more prepared to learn at school and have a higherself-esteem.
Owners Tom and Jennifer Hayes, local entrepreneurs, saw a needfor a business that helps kids set and reach fitness goals —whether the goal is to become better at sports or a just establisha healthier lifestyle.
The business is a good match for their talents. Tom is an avidrugby player and a certified personal trainer with a passion totrain athletes. Jennifer, also passionate about mental and physicalfitness, handles the administrative side of the business.
“Now that we have our own children, Eleora Bee, 3, and Rocco, 1,we looked for ways to provide for them that are family-friendly,”said Jennifer. “We really wanted to create something affordable forfamilies, too. What resulted is a gym for families and we now offerclasses for ages 0 to 100!”
The mission of Kids Core Fitness is to mentor kids and supportfamilies in the community by raising awareness about health andfitness. The Hayes’ hope to help children become stronger —physically, mentally and emotionally.
“We can help kids develop healthy habits through education andexample, and set them up for success,” Jennifer explained.
Kids Core fitness currently is offering more than 20 classes forkids and adults.
Children’s classes include “Turbo Tots,” which helps little onesdevelop motor skills and coordination and “Kids Jam,” which offersaerobic and core exercise to high-energy pop music. Other offeringsinclude “Creative Movement,” “Yoga,” “Open Gym” and storytimes.
Athletic training classes incorporate plyometric exercises (aspecial type of exercise designed to produce fast, powerfulmovement), speed and agility drills, core training and strengthbuilding. Whether or not a child has begun playing sports, theclasses are designed to help them build skills, endurance, andconfidence.
Kids Core Fitness offers adult classes as well, such as“Restorative Movement” for those over 60, “Family Fit” — a classthe whole family can do together, and “Body After Baby,” a specialclass for women who have had children. Personal training also isavailable by appointment.
Jennifer is particularly excited about their newlifestyle-management workshop for teen girls that will kick offTuesday. Tom is teaming up with Erin Tullius, wellness coach andauthor of “Mind Over Fatter,” to offer a class that aims totransform both the body and the mind.
“The young women can expect to experience a dramatically alteredself-image, learn healthy lifestyle choices and see physicalresults,” Jennifer said.
Kids Core Fitness hosted an open house on a recent Sunday solocals could meet the instructors and see the facilities. A circuitwas set up for younger kids, and an obstacle course challengedolder kids.
The Hayes’ are excited for the community to see what they aredoing.
“We want people to realize that we really can make your kidsjump higher, run faster, throw farther, or hit harder; that kidswant to learn and grow and improve themselves and get stronger,”Jennifer said. “They just need the tools!”

Editor’s note: Jackie Balcom, coordinator of the dental health promotion program at Public Health-Muskegon County, is responsible for educating the public about dental health, running a fluoride rinse program for children in areas without fluoridated water and helping people without dental insurance find low-cost options for care. She was asked a few questions about dental hygiene.
Q: What should a person’s dental hygiene routine include each day?
A: if you are a parent, I’d say be sure to brush your child’s teeth until they are 8 years old, because they really don’t have the coordination to be able to do it thoroughly by themselves until then. Brush for two minutes in the morning before school, and in the evening before bed. the times and length of time go for adults too, and we all know it’s so easy when you’ve had a long day and are already in bed reading, to just turn the light out and go to sleep without brushing. You can always go by the feel of your teeth during the day, too, if they feel fuzzy or furry, brush them thoroughly until they feel slick and slippery. another trick is to just spit out the fluoridated toothpaste instead of rinsing it out, and let the fluoride stay on the teeth a little longer, which will help strengthen the enamel. Parents can model good brushing to their children, and have the child practice brushing in their mouth, while watching the parents brush their own teeth. there are also inexpensive battery operated brushes that children enjoy to make brushing more fun.
Q: if you are in a situation where you can’t brush your teeth after eating, what should you do? does chewing sugar-free gum help?
A: yes, chewing sugar-free gum can help especially if you have food stuck on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. Drinking water can rinse out particles. we teach children to go to the drinking fountain and swish the water around and then swallow it. and adding carrots, celery or apples to a child’s lunchbox can help clean the teeth off after eating also by the friction on the teeth and the crunchiness.
Q. Do electric toothbrushes work better than the old-fashioned kind? is the difference enough to justify the extra expense?
A: yes, the benefit of an electric toothbrush is that you just hold it in place and let it do the work vibrating the toothpaste between the teeth and the food and plaque off. however, just like manual (hand) brushing, you have to place the bristles at the gum line where they will create the best result, and with children, we use the “scrub brush” technique which is just scrubbing all over the teeth and making sure every tooth is cleaned. Also, you have to actually do the work with either type of brush — it doesn’t do any good sitting on the sink or in the closet. one helpful hint is to only use a tiny pea sized bit of paste on the brush for an adult, and just a smear of toothpaste on a child’s brush.
I have bought many different kinds of electric toothbrushes for family members over the years, and everyone likes something different. I go between a manual toothbrush and an electric toothbrush, so I think it’s just personal preference. if your dental professional tells you that you need to do a better job brushing, an electric toothbrush might help.
Q:. why is flossing important? is using mouthwash a substitute for people who don’t like it?
A: Flossing is important to be able to clean in between teeth that are tight against each other where toothbrush bristles cannot get. Most people try to floss but don’t feel like they are very successful. You can take a 12-inch piece of floss and tie it in a circle and then work it in between your teeth up and down the sides of the teeth, and move around to a clean area of floss and do it again. this can work better than winding it around your fingers and cutting off the circulation in your fingers. Rinsing is another thing you can do to help remove food debris, but you really need some kind of friction or rubbing against the teeth, such as brushing and flossing, to take the plaque off.
Sleep apnea may be improved by slimming down. Sleep apnea is an obstructive disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing when you are asleep. It is often difficult to overcome, but researchers have identified a solution that may help: shedding some extra pounds. According to a new study, when obese men with sleep apnea were enrolled in a weight loss program and lost an average of 25 lbs. over the course of a year, symptoms of sleep apnea improved dramatically. ten percent of the participants were even cured of the disorder, requiring no further treatment.

Men with more severe sleep apnea symptoms benefited from weight loss the most. In addition to the benefits seen for sleep apnea, the male participants also saw improvements in their lipid profiles and insulin resistance, with half of them experiencing complete resolution of their metabolic syndrome. Moreover, 20 percent of the men who had suffered from hypertension also eliminated that ailment, too.
This particular study used a very low calorie diet for nine weeks. Participants started with a 600 calorie per day liquid diet, then transitioned to a more normal diet of 1,500 calories per day. They also underwent a weight loss maintenance period for the next 43 weeks, which included clinic visits and group sessions. overall, their health showed long-lasting improvements, although being on such a low calorie diet at the beginning of the study caused some adverse effects among the participants, most notably gallstones.
Before putting yourself on a weight loss regimen, especially any extreme low calorie diets or food group-eliminating diets, consult your physician and a registered dietitian for a safe approach to weight loss that is right for you.
