Workout Kid



Most kids love to play games on the computer and watch TV, but not 10-year-old CJ Senter. He says, I love staying fit and healthy. He is one of the youngest fitness instructors in the U.S.A. 

CJ loves football. He is an excellent football player. He is the best on his team, and they win most of their games. He decided to show other kids that exercise can be fun and that it can help them win games too. 

He made two workout DVDs. They are called Workout Kid. Each DVD has a 40-minute workout with great music and fun activities. CJ’s plan is to get kids off the sofa and moving to the music with kids their own age. 

In his DVD he tells the kids to drink water, to warm up before the workout and to cool down at the end. He always tells the kids, You can do it !
