MorePE, whose focus is legislative change in Physical Education
and Nutrition, is a project of the non-profit
"Kids Forever Fit"
project is ultimately about mandating quality Physical Education
programs in ALL school in Ohio and eventually the nation. By quality,
we mean a minimum of 3 days a week of Physical Education, provided by
certified Physical Education instructors.
Until now, I have spent
significant funds and have invested volumes time
helping other teachers, students and parents with Physical Education and
fitness ideas. I have done this through
YouTube videos and my website (MrGym.com), that I built from
scratch with no web experience.
MrGym.com gets several million hits a year, and
receive a lot of physical education questions
from all over the world! This
site is arguably the
#1 Physical Education site on the Internet.
What makes it so good is the personal attention and experience that I
provide. Yes, some sites have more
activities and pages, but that
does not mean better! Much of
their material is visitor added, and
unfortunately it is NOT always good material. I cut through all that, and
my material is tested and appropriate. I have also just begun creating
videos that I share on
helps "show" others exactly how activities
problem is that I need to take my website and videos to the next level.
Here are my goals:
1. Acquire help in consolidating my
IdeaProgram.com into my main
2. Acquire help in producing a professional video that will
gain the attention of
state and more importantly
agencies, news channels, The Today Show
to name a few.
3. Use these platforms to take
ACTION to make appropriate
changes in how we attack childhood obesity!
1. I would like to have a
or passionate stakeholder take the
iPad app that I have
created for assessing and analyzing student fitness scores, and make it
available to ALL physical
education instructors at
1. I will
endeavor to make real changes in legislation
clearly motivate our country
toward a healthy standard
through education! This starts with our youth.
I will lead this mission with the formation of the Motivated Obesity,
Reduction, Education and Prevention Endeavor! (MorePE.com)
The bottom line of my project is this: Everyone talks
prevention when it comes to addressing childhood
there is great failure in those attempting to take action,
and the ones who do, are approaching it
push for change, but
lack the knowledge to insure it is carried out correctly in the educational
arena. State departments make decisions and use
resources based on people who have not been
actively engaged in a schools for years, or are
out of touch with reality. Folks, I know
physical education! With
my years of first hand, currently teaching experience, I have what it takes
to attack childhood obesity.
It requires ACTION
with a plan, and that is what I intend to make
