Recently, Henry used a Halloween theme with backdrops as well as music to engage each student. Now, he is gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Indeed, these have been tough and challenging times for everyone as we are all dealing with the pandemic.

In essence, there is so much to be thankful for.
Although things have been challenging, Henry’s hope is to emerge as a key leader in a model for youth sports. At the end of the day, Henry is working on being hands-on and active face-to-face with the kids and hopes to be back in the gym in the near future.
In summary, as Henry is facing the challenges of youth sports; he hopes the kids continue to stay positive as this could be a turning point for both kids and parents to realize the importance of health, nutrition, and sports.
