"Youth Fitness" programs have consisted of the following mutually exclusive models:
- "Boot Camp" style fitness camps, patterned after adult programming
- Play-based programs lacking focus on skill development or vigor
- Programs and instructors focused on competitive sports
Young people will not continue to be active unless they feel that they are competent, and it is something they enjoy - hence the need for both play and skill development.
Teachers, instructors, coaches, and parents using MyFUNctionMethod.com will learn to foster skill development through the process of Active Play.
MyFUNctionMethod.com will help you understand the neuroscience of play with a focus on direct practical application and understanding what makes kids "tick". Additionally, signing up for MyFunctionMethod.com will help you build other skills that true change agents need: becoming an advocate for play, learning to partner with institutions, involving families in play experiences, and much more!
Members will not only learn original games and original approaches to not-so-new games, but will understand the experience of playful interaction. On MyFUNctionMethod.com; We will exchange ideas freely. We will reflect and learn together. Here at MyFUNctionMethod.com we will learn how to support each other as human beings solving a human problem.
"Childhood Obesity is a neuroscience problem"
The FUNction Method is based in principles of neural development. It was created because too often programs that educate or "train" children and teens are not based in understanding how the brain and spinal cord interact with the body. This is a problem, don't you think? The fact is, childhood obesity is a neuroscience problem. It always has been.
How do you think kids fall into bad eating habits? The brain interacting with the gut.
What's the reason that kids either do or don't become athletically competent? The brain and spinal cord interacting with the muscles.
How did I come to think of myself as someone who "moves" and is active? The brain perceiving and interacting with the outside world.
Why do we choose to do anything? Because it either is or will be pleasurable to the brain.
So, don't you think you should be learning how to solve childhood inactivity from a neuroscientist?
There are plenty of programs out there. The FUNction Method is built and predicated on the following idea: That skill development, a love for movement, and fitness can all be built simultaneously. I spent 15 years meticulously reading responses from kids, teachers and counselors I worked with. I spent 15 years reading every tidbit of child development and neural development research that I could. I spent 22 years (beginning at age 16) experiencing a plethora of movement forms and disciplines. And that's what built and continues to build The FUNction Method.
When You Sign Up... You Will...
|Foster skill development within play, instead of trying to pass boring stuff off as fun by using big personalities, famous people, or barking instructions like a drill sergeant. We learn games, and more importantly, how to tweak those games to keep them fresh and relevant for different age groups and interests. This is not about exercises for kids. This is about what physical activity was originally meant to be - play.|
|Partner with kids to change games, invent new games, and gain valuable movement skill. The FUNction Method will not tolerate those who refuse to move, and just want to sit back and give kids instructions. You will learn how to meld with the experience of the kids and teens you work with, but remain invisible enough so that it is not about you.|
|Use FUNction Coachable Moments to help kids understand how their bodies can move better.This is about stepping in, asking strategic questions, giving strategic tips, and stepping out. It is also about looking at skill development as a lifetime thing, not a "6 weeks and you're all better" thing.|
|Interface with other organizations and each other to provide better infrastructure for Active Play. Because programs are not nearly as effective if our surroundings tell us not to be active. We will learn how to serve each other as advocates and partners.|
