PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 21, 2014 - JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The very same day that the 2014 Winter Olympics started in Sochi, the most decorated American Gymnast in history, Shannon Miller, made a special appearance to talk to the children at Hendricks Day School.  As Jacksonville’s top private school, Hendricks values health and fitness, and makes efforts to educate their students on different options to remain active.

After a day full of activities such as Zumba, Yoga, Cross Fit training, and an obstacle course, the kids were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a pep talk about staying active. A video of her Gold medal-worthy balance beam routine introduced Shannon Miller to her young audience. She explained that it is possible to achieve any type of dream, if you first take the journey step-by-step. The theme of competition was prevalent throughout the day, and Miller noted that if you want to succeed, you must not limit yourself, but rather challenge yourself.  She also noted that her Olympic dream budded at the age of 11, and by the age of 19 she had won a gold medal.

Centering on personal growth with inspirational words, Miller’s message to the students at Hendricks Day School was that dedication creates results.  She was thoroughly impressed to see that some of the students had been practicing sports for most of their lives and had plans to continue.  She encouraged the students to continue to pursue athletic success, as there is a sport for everyone. Miller has suffered multiple injuries in her athletic career, but it has been her determination that made her so successful.  One saying that Miller reiterated multiple times to the children was “Fuel your body for success!”

An ovarian cancer survivor, Miller is now fully recovered and a full-time proponent of healthy lifestyles.  A mother of two, Miller recognizes the need to treat your body right with the use of both health and fitness. She is the founder of Shannon Miller Lifestyle, and has created a business around providing health and wellness information in a grand scheme in 2012.  Her website, www.shannonmillerlifestyle.com features many resources including blog posts, healthy recipes, links to fitness tips, and much more.  During her visit to Hendricks, she made sure to talk about how important moderation is in regards to both fitness and nutrition.
