After being moved by the two top issues in the headlines that children are facing bullying and childhood obesity friends and strangers got together to make a positive impact and create something to help make a difference in the lives of children. We started Rocking It For Life and created Rock It a motivational character building fitness program with anti-bully input. Now we have a challenge for 2012.


Rocking It For Life want to help kids get a fresh start in 2012. Most kids face a lot of challenges whether being bullied, experiencing depression, not having a good home life, experiencing negative peer pressure or even being obese. Today they experience an over whelming amount of negative input and stress. This upcoming year can be the beginning of kids living their best life into adulthood.

Rocking It For life can help decrease bullying, build good character, increase confidence, build self-esteem, motivate kids to say no to negative peer pressure, give hope and decrease depression all while kids enjoy getting fit and healthy.

At the start of the year weight loss is at the top of the list for a lot of people. Parents and educators can help children achieve their goal. In addition, First Lady Michelle Obama has made it her mission to help end childhood obesity.

Headlines/Statistics: Alarming increase in childhood obesity, children suffering with Diabetes and diseases usually seen in adults. This is the first generation not expected to live longer than their parents. It cost the US $150 billion dollars annually on obesity related disorders. At least 50% of students bullied other kids. Being bullied can have negative lingering effects in adulthood. Everyday 160,000 kids miss school because they are afraid of being bullied.

All over the internet hundreds of kids and adults comment about how they suffered from being bullied. A lot of them said it was reported, but nothing was done. Now more laws and policies are passed regarding bullying, but we need to do more to change the culture of bullying, build good character and restore civility.

It is imperative to teach kids how to have positive self-talk. Speaking only positive and encouraging words to themselves and never allowing negative input to be apart of their being. When other kids call them a bad name or perhaps a parent say something terrible about them they can quickly forgive that person, do not accept it as an offense and replace the negative comment with two positive ones.

Unfortunately, we live in a very negative world. More people are extremely critical even about themselves. Some harbor resentment, anger, shame, guilt and unforgiveness all that can decrease ones immune system. We have to encourage kids to have a healthy positive attitude about

themselves. A renewed mind will not allow negative, toxic comments or thoughts to take root and set up unease in their mind or body. Having toxic thoughts can lead to poor health and depression. It is true, our emotions and thoughts do affect our health. It has been proven there is a mind-body connection.

Psychologists say 40% of happiness is what we do and how we think. In addition happiness can be nurtured and cultivated during childhood.



A family moves thousands of miles away to another state. Their children can be reassured that their new school are implementing daily positive input to help instill compassion and more character building attributes giving them some peace of mind.


Whether it is Joyce Meyer speaking about not being pitiful but powerful, Bill Winston teaching about the importance of integrity, Joel Osteen talking about the power of having gratitude, Les Brown encouraging us to never give up, Anthony Robbins emphasizing motion creates emotion, or Dr. Byron Hayes inspiring us with his motivational nuggets, kids can have the victory with all of these keys for success in life as they are incorporated in Rocking It For Life Motivational Character Building Fitness Sessions.
