Question: What do you think/feel when you see an inspired young person actively engaged in an outdoor experience?
Focus Physical Therapy: Encouraging our young generations to discover outdoor activities is important to our team for so many reasons. where to begin? it gives us great satisfaction to see this generation learning to move, getting exercise, engaging with the outdoors in a positive way/learning to appreciate all our seasons and how to thrive in them, learning teamwork and goal setting, and acquiring the discipline to work towards individual as well as team/group goals while also having fun.
Exercise, recreation, training and experiencing the outdoors through movement all create positive changes on learning and behavior, fostering the development of healthy attitudes towards their bodies, their team-mates, and our environment.
Caring about themselves in a healthy way – “how am I working to meet my goals? where do I need work?” is a prerequisite for caring about others and the world we live in.
We value the athlete, scholar, environmental advocate – each of these terms can be defined broadly – for example ‘athlete’ doesn’t have to mean 5% body fat and podium finishes – it’s a physical culture that embraces movement, fitness goals at any level of ability and development and positive drive and motivation towards goals both internal and external.
Each of these abilities and qualities takes modeling, encouragement, coaching and instruction, as the culture for many Americans may be lacking in basics in these areas. That’s where supporting BEA means so much to each one of us at Focus Physical Therapy.
