Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah guest post on making habits stick

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

Fit Kids Fest 2019 Savannah Junior League CrossFitHP

Below is a guest post from Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah 

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you always did healthy things all the time without even thinking about it?

That’s the beauty of a habit. It just happens without a whole lot of resistance.

We’ll got habits – the routine things we do from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep (even the way we sleep is a routine).

Our kids have habits too. Some are great, and some we wish as parents we could break before it gets harder later in life.

Here are few tips for making some of those things we KNOW we should be doing more of a habit. (These are good for grownups and well as kids.)

One thing at time. Don’t try to pile on multiple new habits at once. That’s a recipe for failure.

Pair the habit with something you already do routinely. For instance, if you’ve decided that you should drink more water, connect it with something you already do. Perhaps when you turn the water on to take a shower in the morning, it triggers you to go snag a quick drink as you wait for the shower to warm up.

Chunk it down. Reduce resistance to getting started by setting a goal in the smallest increment possible. If getting more activity during the day is a goal, you’re not likely to stop your other habits to work in 30 minutes. But if you can work in 1 minute a couple of times a day you’ll find you are getting in much more than that one minute. Getting started is the hardest part.

Reward yourself (with something healthy of course, but enjoyable). My kids don’t love to read, but they like their time with me. So we read for a bit and then they get some bonus attention that is just theirs.

Take notice. You want your kids to pick up after themselves? Verbally applaud them for doing the task as soon as notice it getting even a tiny bit better.

Progress is better than perfection. Our habits are always a work in progress. Keep looking for news ways to make doing the good stuff easier.

Want more ideas? Check out the the Junior League of Savannah’s FREE Fit Kids Fest on Sat. March 2 2019, 1-4PM @ Savannah State University. There will all sorts of activities and local vendors that love to make Savannah families healthier. Stop by the Hyperformance Athletics Obstacle Course and say hello.

ASWING Junior Golf Academy Spring Semester Clinics
Beginning Sat. Feb. 2 2019.
The ASWING Junior Golf Academy begins its 12-week semester of clinics for girls and boys ages 5 years old to high school seniors. Certified curriculum & staff provide a FUN & process-driven plan to coach your child to play better golf no matter their ability, as well as cultivating the character development that golf provides.

These coaches are not trying to help create good golfers. They’re trying to create AMAZING golfers. They believe that should be the goal of every junior golf program in the country. However, the way they will go about creating those amazing golfers is vastly different from what is available in most junior golf programs. The focus is on the needs & learning styles of the juniors. Kids learn by playing and by encouragement, which they provide with our “golf playground” of stations and activities during every clinic. The kids love the excitement…some days even a parent can play too! The children who go through ASWING will build a love for golf and physical activity.

Be sure to take note of the kids’ faces as they go through the program. Watch the smiles. Watch the laughter. Watch the determination. Watch how their bodies move. Because of the varying physical nature of this program and its cross-training, the athletes who play other sports will also see increased skill levels in those sports.

Kids’ Fitness Classes @ Hyperformance Athletics of Savannah

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Crossfit Kids Savannah

Sport as a metaphor for life. Kids learn so much through sport. Just to name a few…

Setting goals and expectations
Dealing with disapointment
Pushing through being uncomfortable
Teamwork
Sportsmanship
Integrity
Persitance

Exposing kids to multiple sports, both individual and team based, are an important part of growing up. Not to mention kids connect movement with fun and success. Make that connection when they are young and your children are much more likely to enjoy a healthy, active adulthood.

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah offers the foundation of that success. Their program for elementary-aged kids exposes them to new physical challenges each session. Those challenges present opportunities to grow in character and in fitness.

New students are invited to join us for a free trial class any Wednesday at 4:30PM or any Saturday at 10:15AM (no class Saturday 10/26) at Hyperformance Athletics, 904 E 70th St. 912-335-3515.

(Savannah pediatricians) How two parents’ strength fuels a special Richmond Hill 5K

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

southcoast health pediatrics dr. webb

Need an example of strength and resilience?

You’ll find it in the parents featured on the SouthCoast Health Web site posted entitled SouthCoast Pediatrician and Wife Raise Awareness for Childhood Cancer.

The post spotlights SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. William Webb and wife Danielle, a clinical pediatric dietitian at Memorial Health, who are continuing to fight for childhood cancer research after the death of their son four years ago. Three-year-old William Webb II of Savannah faced a rare form of childhood cancer, stage IV neuroblastoma, with remarkable spirit.

“He would want us to get out there and improve the situation for others,” Dr. Webb says in the post.

William’s parents have created the nonprofit Warriors for William Foundation to raise money for childhood cancer research. The foundation’s logo is an outline of a boy in a superhero costume, a direct nod to their son.

The Warriors for William Foundation hosts fundraising events including the Warriors for William 5K. The sixth annual race returns Oct. 28 2018 at J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill.

Learn more about William’s and his parents’ perseverance as well as you can get involved in Warriors for William Foundation or
