I have just filmed two new aquatic exercise videos. And good news! I am having my website rebuilt this summer so that you can watch videos directly on the Fitmotivation website. Big thanks to Fitmotivation’s Youtube subscribers! I have had so much interest in my aqua fitness videos – including international viewers that I wanted to make my videos accessible without having to purchase the DVD and pay for shipping. I hope to have videos posted and ready for viewing in October 2014. I plan on offering a low cost pay per video option and an affordable monthly subscriber option that allows viewing of ALL videos. Written notes will be available for all videos (downloadable PDF files). Let me know if you have any suggestions or comments regarding this as there is still time for me to adjust and implement changes. The first video in this “Coming Attraction” clip is Pure Aqua – which features aqua choreography for the shallow water. This aqua routine features aquatic exercises sequenced into patterns for each individual song. It is a fun and engaging aqua aerobic routine. The other video is Sha-Deep – and this video features water aerobics cardio that can be performed in either deep or shallow water. It is a challenging water workout that blends choreography and high intensity interval training. You will see when you watch the video how hard I was working!! 🙂 Thanks again for your support. It is much appreciated. Stay tuned for BIG changes in October!
12 Minutes of Aerobic Exercise Can Boost Low-Income College Students Academic Performance

The consequences of income inequality are felt widely by children and adolescents, including health, social and educational issues. The educational gap between children of low- and high-income families has grown by more than 40% since 1960. Low-income students are more likely to fall behind in high school graduation rates, grade point average and SAT scores, college admissions, enrollment and even graduation.
Researchers are now dedicating resources to try to identify the multitude of reasons this occurs and possible interventions. Studies have shown that low-income students are at risk for a variety of attention deficit skills, including selective visual attention. Selective visual attention is the ability to remain visually focused on something despite distractions.
Researchers have shown visual attention improves after aerobic exercise in low-income children, however they have not proven it in adolescents or correlated to improved academic success. The reason that adolescents need to be studied separately is their visual attention skills have reached a more mature level and may be less responsive to aerobic exercise.
