The Idiots Are At Again- Part 3 Fittest Kid in America?

Yes, someone, somewhere is running a contest called The Fittest Kid in America. The first age group is 5-6 year olds. In the wide world of stupidity, this might be a new high. Events include broad jump, vertical jump and pullups. Might be first time someone who wears pullups does pullups. I have no idea who in the youth fitness world would think this is a good idea. When are people going to realize that parents care about these contests, not kids. This is another chance for another crazy Mom or Dad to push their kid into another silly, inappropriate activity. Why can’t we have the America Playfest. At the America Playfest kids could be admitted to a large arena. Parents not allowed. The kids would have to make teams and organize their own games without parents. Now that is a good idea. The Fittest Kid in America is a foolish concept. Please boycott it and, tell all your friends.

  1. Can we record the “Playfest” and show that there doesn’t need to be a wii or x-box for kids to have fun? Maybe even show that interaction with children of their own age and the ability to be creative may contribute to healthier children and as such adults later on it life? How about instead of “time out”, the child has to do their age times 10 in push-ups, sit-ups, and bodyweight squats in the corner before they are able to go say “I’m sorry”? At least they would sleep better through the night then, right? Thanks for the head’s up about another crazy parent/contest story.

  2. Ya damn the parents that are involed! Or educated the parents that are involed?

  3. Hey Mike,

    I will spread the word about this crazy event. Just this morning had two kids ask about during bench work. I said first give me 10 perfect push ups and then we will talk. I’m happy to report we will be working on push ups. LOL

    Thanks for being a strong voice!!


  4. Hey Mike,
    Forget the fittest kid in America. How about the all- around healthiest kid in America. Fit is only one part of the equation. Then maybe these kids can question why parents do certain things with their own health

  5. I see America’s Playfest devolving into Lord of the Flies with a score tally.

    I was thinking more of a Biggest Loser takeoff for the parents like Biggest Idiot.

  7. Mike,

    How about the inext step…”Dumbest parents in America”?

  8. GREAT JOB MIKE! Once again you have the GUTS to speak up and force people to think outside the box! These kids already go from sport to sport to contest to contest. LOTS OF PARENTS LIVING THOUGH THEIR CHILDREN!!! BRING BACK HOP SCOTCH AND DUCK DUCK GREY DUCK…. WAYNE
