Samir Becic and his Health Fitness Revolution Team came to MacArthur High School today and truly inspired our students. We were hoping we’d have approximately 500 students in attendance, but we were closer to 1,500 students in our auditorium!
Samir spoke to the students about healthy eating habits and demonstrated a variety of activities that could be done for exercise. Besides the importance of physical well-being, he also explained the importance of their mental and spiritual well-being. He explained that to be truly healthy, a person must have a balance in all three areas. He encouraged and motivated students and teachers alike. He welcomed questions from the audience (Ex: “Prom is in 2 weeks, what can I do to lose weight?”) and patiently chatted with students and teachers one-on-one.
His knowledge, motivation, encouragement, and his presentation had the school buzzing all day! His passion to get our students, their families, communities, our state, and our nation, healthy and fit is quite obvious. I know that he and his team have made a lasting impact in my life and that of my students. I would encourage everyone to follow the non-profit at www.healthfitnessrevolution.
