Teaching fitness to children along with boosting imagination

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- By now everyone is sick of snow days and parents are scratching their heads with activities for kids to do at home. Fitness expert Michelle Yeager Turner says one thing kids love to do is let their imagination soar. Help get your kids off the couch or out the door with some great stretches that also stretch their imagination!

She has a few creative ideas including encouraging children to act like their hands are glued to a ceiling. Have them pretend to hold an invisible hula hoop and move it from your head to your feet. Act like you're running on hot coals then under a limbo stick and on to a sticky piece of wall paper!

MYT Fitness is also offering Mom and Baby Exercise Classes, CLICK HERE for information.

About Michelle Yeager Turner:

Getting active and motivated is tough for many women--especially after having a baby. But Michelle Yeager-Turner had many challenges to bring her beloved son Maximus into the world. Gymnastics as a child, cheerleading in high school and even competitive bodybuilding couldn't prepare her for the toll it took on her body. Add ten weeks bed rest, and Michelle was ready to get moving, after her son arrived.

But she found it difficult to work out because not many gyms were sympathetic to her son crying in daycare. So Michelle found another way. She created her own at-home workouts. She learned a lot about herself and what it takes to get back on track.
