Guest Speaker Encourages Healthy Living at Sewanhaka

Sewanhaka High School students were visited by personal trainer and fitness and nutrition expert Leighton Grant on Feb. 7.

Mr. Grant spoke to students about finding their hidden potential and the importance of self-care, exercise and nutrition in realizing their full potential.

“The biggest gift you have is the power of choice,” Grant said. “Believe in yourself, take care of yourself and big things will happen.”

Mr. Grant encouraged students to incorporate exercise into their lives, eating “good for your body” foods and not relying on outside sources, like drugs, alcohol and fast food, to take away stress or make them happy. He recommended using exercise in place of bad habits to increase endorphins, manage stress and emotion, and make their body and mind feel better.
