Stretches for Warrior Fitness
When I start stretching I get warm up before I do an intense workout. Like for an example: I do 2-lap jog in the fitness track to keep me on the move. Stretches are mostly important because it works on my flexibility. When I warm up I will not hurt myself. When I walk or run on the treadmill I sweat a lot. Any type of injury of a sport you must be relaxed and exercise, it will help. When I feel sweat coming down I of course drink water. This is what I do I love doing high kicks and butt kicks, squats also. Fitness is fun for me to do all this things. Elliptical is another exercise that helps me to get my heart rate up that is good. My own workouts are 3 sets each round of 15 0r 10 push-ups and 20 wall balls. Then I do power ropes for 30 seconds or 1 minute. Pam is a great trainer to have she encourages me and I want to thank her. The fitness keeps me healthy and strong.

Stewart Home & School students’ BMI’s are amazing! BMI’s (Body Mass Index) of 30 and above are considered “obese”. In 2010, statistics showed that 35% of Americans’ BMI’s were over 30. Our students are weighed each month and their BMI’s are calculated. Meal intake and exercise patterns are reviewed with administrative, residential, school program, health services, and nutritional services departments represented and – as of yesterday – less than 10% of our guys and less than 15% of our ladies fall in the obesity category. Given that the statistics for adults with special needs in Kentucky are reported to have an obesity rate of over 90%, our students are amazing! (This is 2013 data from Kentucky.)
