Six is my lucky number and I can’t believe Camp Warner Bros is more than half over! With summer waning, it’s time to set some midyear goals (but short term and long term) with our family. This week we’re screening Alex & Me and finding insight with ourselves with family workouts and personal goals.
If you want to catch up on the summer fun we’ve had so far, there’s Superhero Training (week 1), Crystal Gem Rock Candy Recipe (week 2), and Gummy Bear Slime (EW! Week 3), and Scooby-Doo Puppy Chow (week 4) for you to enjoy. Week 5 saw us making Teen Titans GO Money Jars!
Family Workouts & Goals
Shoot for your dreams with us this week at Camp Warner Bros., as soccer superstar, Alex Morgan, stars in the full-length feature film – Alex & Me! The film follows the uplifting story of a young female athlete who learns how you need passion, determination and self-worth to make all your dreams come true. With sunny weather and cool mornings, it’s a great time for campers to think of their goals – be it short term, or long term!
In Alex & Me, Reagan (played by Siena Agudong (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn,” and “ Star Falls”) uses a chart to keep track of her daily soccer drills as she progress towards her goals. This week at camp, we want to inspire our campers to follow their dreams and keep track of their personal goals with their Alex & Me Goal Chart – a great tool to motivate kids to strive to be their best.
If you’re like me, goals are more about benchmarks, distance, and sticking with it. My husband, on the other side of the coin, pushes for speed and increased ability. Our kids fall somewhere in the middle. Red has taken up tennis and training for a 5k, which is admirable at 9 years old. Scarlett just learned to swim and hold her breath well at the pool, so laps and dives have been a part of her weekly workouts, as well as walks around the block. Participating in physical activity can be fun, elevate your mood, and strengthen your body and bond with your team all at the same time! Here’s some family workout ideas if you’re new to the game!
Please always use caution when exercising or doing family workouts. Listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right – don’t do it! Daily exercise improves health, can reduce anxiety, and increases self-confidence – and working together to get through this list as a team will make the whole family feel great!
About Alex & Me:
Teenager Reagan Willis has one dream – to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!
Please make sure to include that Alex & Me is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray™ & DVD!
