My name is Lisa Salas and I am the founder of Generation Kid Strong. My passion for children's fitness and health comes from my background in fitness, medicine and of course being a parent myself. I've been in the fitness industry for over 10 years and have specialized in children's weight loss for over 4 years. I also worked as an EMT for over 5 years and witnessed firsthand the problems facing our youth and their health. Our goal at Generation Kid Strong is to provide our upstate community with resources to overcome the struggles associated with childhood obesity. We want to reach and help as many families as possible. As a mother of two girls I want for them, the same as any parent would and that's for my children to be healthy and happy. I know that if we start with our youth we can change their future as adults. Like Fredrick Douglas said "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
