ORLANDO, Fla., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative, obesity rates among children have tripled in the past 30 years. GeoMotion Group, a leading fitness and learning company based in Florida is taking an active role by creating and delivering programs which improve children's health while helping them achieve academic success.
Dr. Debby Mitchell, GeoMotion's President and Founder, UCF Associate Professor studied the relationship between rhythmic competency and academic performance in young students. The results show that youth receiving additional physical activity show improved attributes such as increased brain function and nourishment, higher energy and concentration levels.
"Good health habits are established early in life. With the Learnercise movement activities, teachers and children use multiple sensory modalities creating neural connections across numerous pathways in the brain," says Dr. Mitchell. The branching of these connections is one of the first steps in wiring the brain for future learning [NASPE, Appropriate Practices in Movement Programs for Young Children].
GeoMotion is a proud sponsor of the Early Childhood Movement Day at the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, on March 17th at the National American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance in Indianapolis, March 16 – 20, 2010.
