I rarely travel with my children, but when I do, I’m often left looking for something for them to “do,” an activity to allow them to get moving and be active, a way to enjoy some exercise and fitness and avoiding sitting in the room watching cruddy television. When I travel, I always find the gym and take advantage of all the activities, so why shouldn’t my kids have the same options?
If I was lucky enough to be able to stay at Trump Towers New York, I think I’d be one of the first to take advantage of their newest exercise program geared toward kids ages six and up. After all, getting kids moving should be a primary focus for all of us, for creating good habits that will last a life time.
From the press release: “We are pleased to debut our new kids’ fitness curriculum at a time when the health of this country’s children has moved to the forefront with First Lady Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move‘ campaign,” commented Trump International Hotel & Tower New York’s own First Lady, General Manager Suzie Mills. “We deliver Five-Star service to every guest, no matter his or her age, and these additions provide an invigorating and enriching dimension to the existing Trump Kids program.”
The four programs range from swimming to boxing, Wii sports to weight training. Now, I don’t expect that one or even a handful of visits will be enough to start a child on the road to a lifetime exercise – but as a part of a daily routine, I think that the hotel chain deserves props for moving in the right direction. Ideally, I’d love to see every hotel, every school, every club, every location that kids can be found at doing everything that they can to help America’s children develop healthy habits.
