Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a lovely holiday season, and we hope you have a great 2016! With the New Year, comes new beginnings. Resolutions to quit smoking, or reduce your consumption of alcohol, or spend more time with family are all common ones, but here at ISC Cherry Hill we want to focus on two in particular: the resolution to live a healthier life, and to spend more time with your family.
Leading a healthy life is so much more important than the infamous “dieting”. Diets come and go, but it is not until you change your way of life that you will truly see lasting results. Exercise is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to reduce calories, build muscle tone, and yes, be happier. Exercise releases endorphins, which triggers a chemical response in the brain that essentially makes you happy. WebMD actually states that “if [teens] walk 4 miles a day four times a week, [they] can burn about 1,600 calories or nearly half a pound a week.” This is without changing your diet at all. Skating burns even more calories than walking! Can you believe it?
Taking classes at ISC Cherry Hill can also help you bond with your family. It is very important to build relationships while your children are young, as it will help them socially, physically, and emotionally. Starting at the age of two, your child can participate in Tyke Tuesday with us, where you and your child learn to skate together, teaching team play, social skills, and athleticism. As your child grows, he or she can choose from the many classes and team sports we offer! So, the next time you wonder how you and your child can become closer, think International Sports Center Cherry Hill!
