Move Your Body With Beyoncé

I'm the father of a 5 year old daughter who is in serious need of a kill-switch to stop moving and a son who plays football and basketball and runs track and if allowed to would spend all day shooting hoops at the courts. I'm a man who works boxes, jumps rope, lifts weights, does plyometrics and at the very least takes a brisk walk no less than 15 minutes a day 6 days out of the week. And we all eat fruit like it's going out of style. So of course I'm all about First Lady Michelle Obama's initiative to reduce childhood obesity by promoting active lifestyles for children. Children and active. I'm not sure the two terms can even be separate and apart from each other. But sadly, in today's media-rich society 'tis true.

Let’s Move!
is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.*

Just recently my old flame (in my head), Beyoncé Knowles, joined the initiative. Below is her contribution.

What's up with Beyoncé's face derezzing? Scary, right?

Now check out the full work out with the reworked Move Your Body adapted from her original Get Me Bodied.

Reminds me of a boxing workout, minus all that hip work.

I can definitely see my little one doing this, or just doing her own thing. Whatever the case, the warm weather is here and definitely on it's way to stay, I hope you get your kids off the couch, out from in front of the television or video games. Get them outdoors and get them moving their bodies like we did back in the day on the playgrounds before playgrounds became places no one wanted their kids to be.
