From the Inside Flap
As a parent, you naturally want your child to be as healthy and as fit as he or she can be. You may worry that your child seems to out of breath after gym class, or that he or she is much too skinny to even engage in serious exercise. Even if your child is a star athlete, you want to make sure that he or she becomes stronger and faster to perform at his or her very best. But just which exercises will yield the most benefits? Most important, which activities are actually safe for your children? A popular misconception is that young athletes shouldn’t engage in strength training because it can stunt their growth or even cause injury. Nothing could be further from the truth. Current research indicates that strength training is the single most effective exercise method for improving strength and fitness, and can dramatically alter and improve a child’s body composition. Whether your child is a competitive athlete or is just trying to get leaner, the truth is that he or she can get stronger and healthier no matter what his or her fitness level.

"Strong Kids, Healthy Kids: The Revolutionary Program for Increasing Your Child's Fitness in 30 Minutes a Week", by Frederick Hahn, is a very timely addition to the materials available on the subject of childhood obesity. Mr. Hahn presents guidelines for increasing your child's fitness in 30 minutes a week. This fitness progam includes a strength training plan for children. A popular misconception is that children shouldn't engage in strength training because it can stunt their growth or even cause injury.

The last chapter of the book is "The Strong Kids, Healthy Kids Eating Plan". This is an excellent guide for healthy eating that can benefit people of all ages. It is not about counting calories but about eating the right kinds of foods to promote healthy growth. The author states that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated...Read more ›
Fitness expert Fred Hahn understands this and wanted to equip parents and children alike with exercise that will be efficient, effective, and effortless compared to any activity you've ever done before to improve your strength and health. The playful language that Hahn uses definitely reveals he's a daddy who knows how to talk to his child. And that "voice" comes through loud and clear throughout the book.
This book could easily have been called "Slow Burn For Kids" because many of the principles are taken directly from Hahn's bestselling Slow Burn Fitness Revolution book co-written with Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades. Combine "slow burn" fitness with a healthy low-carbohydrate nutritional approach and you have a perfect way to make your kids stronger and healthier than you ever thought possible!
