Check out this 10-year old’s workout video for kids – it’s pretty cute:
C.J. Senter may or may not be the next Tony Horton or the next Barry Sanders, but he is definitely the next 10-year-old to watch.
Granted, when most people hear “child prodigy,” they rightfully raise an eyebrow and wonder who is pulling the strings. Add a workout DVD by a fourth-grader with sculpted muscles to the mix and “cute” can turn to “concerning.” But it turns out the story behind “C.J. The Workout Kid” is a lot more inspiring than insidious.
This kid doesn’t lift weights (which apparently, is not good for kids under 15), and he doesn’t diet. In fact, his parents say he doesn’t even like candy that much.
I can relate to that one. Jazz is not a candy eater, either. (Which ….. UGH! If I only had that problem I’d be a size TWO! HA!).
I thought it was funny when the article said that the kid was making the parents feel bad for not being in shape, so he’s motivated the entire family to exercise and eat better.
We all need a C.J. in our house!
I love to read stories of kids doing positive things. We need MORE positive kid stories, don’t you agree?
