Comments on the Illinois AHPERD Convention

I just got back from the Illinois AHPERD Convention in St. Charles IL.  It was a great convention with about 3000 people in attendance.  I just want to thank those participants who came to my three presentations.  I appreciate your interest in my work and hope that the activities I shared benefit you in your teaching.  I did submit the handouts from my sessions to the IAHPERD website and I believe they become available to all attendees on December 10th.  If you have any questions about the games and activities I presented, feel free to email or call me.  Also, if any of you are interested in my Dr. Recess program for your school or need a presenter for your Professional Development, please don't hesitate to contact me.  I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your convention ad I look forward to coming back again next year.  Thanks!  Curt

A valuable way to lose weight is to increase your resting metabolism. This refers to the calories your body burns while you’re at rest. To increase your resting metabolism you need to increase your overall muscle mass. This is because muscle cells use up more energy than fat cells. Weight or resistance training are the best methods for increasing muscle mass.
