A Chat with Kids Under Construction
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Kids Under Construction only works with adolescent children and offers the option of home sessions or gym workouts—whatever makes the child feel comfortable. The sessions are customized to the needs of the child.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
The program offers a mentor to help address self-esteem issues, which is instrumental in determining the child’s fitness goals. Through customized exercise sessions and food journals for nutrition recommendations, children are taught to live healthy lifestyles.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Childhood obesity is a huge problem, especially in the South. So, for the last 10 years, we have helped families get healthy.
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping children gain confidence and make the decision on their own to get healthy and stay healthy. When a child is empowered, it motivates them to help others too.
