A Fitting Resolution

Let’s talk about your new year’s resolutions. Does “making a difference” turn up on the list? If so, check out this new Dallas nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating childhood obesity through fitness education. Fit-for-Me was founded by Don-Miguel (pictured), who has more than 16 years experience in fitness & wellness (he’s a former high-profile East Coast trainer who has worked out athletes such as Denise Austin (who pretty much rocks if you've ever checked out her exercise programs).

There are a few ways you can help:

*Volunteer (lots of opportunities from serving as a board member to planning special events - in fact, Ashley Wolf, DallasChild’s pr/marketing guru and I have joined the team … we’re walking the talk, moms)

*Share your public speaking moxie at area schools (if you make your living in the fitness trade)

*Make a monetary or equipment donation

Even in sports-crazed Dallas, childhood obesity rates are rising (it’s actually become a national pandemic). Fit-for-Me hopes to teach every child that fitness & wellness should be as much a part of the daily routine as brushing teeth! Now that's a resolve fit for me. --shelley
