What motivates you to stay healthy?
I’m motivated to stay healthy because it allows me to play the sports I love like football, basketball and baseball.
What do you enjoy most about exercising?
I enjoy the energy I get when I exercise. I have more energy after I exercise then when I sit on the couch and watch TV.
What do you do to stay fit?
I play some type of sport year round like football, basketball or baseball. Between sports, I like to run or walk around my neighborhood.
How do you make time for exercise?
I just do it! If I’m not practicing a sport with my school, then I’m playing outside; usually shooting hoops or playing football with my friend in my neighborhood.
