    Authors Scott Lancaster and Radu Teodorescu bring a wealth of experience to Athletic Fitness for Kids. Lancaster, the founder and CEO of Youth Evolution Sports, a multimedia, content, and youth sports marketing company that services kids, parents, coaches, corporations, and major league sport organizations, has been developing youth sport fitness and athletic conditioning programs for 19 years. Teodorescu runs a training center in New York City and is a monthly columnist for Seventeen. For more than 25 years he has trained everyone from kids to celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Candice Bergen, Matthew Broderick, and Vanessa Williams. He is widely known for creating, writing, and producing videos with celebrity model and fitness enthusiast Cindy Crawford, including Shape Your Body, which is the best-selling fitness video of all time.

    In Athletic Fitness for Kids, Lancaster and Teodorescu team up to provide effective strategies for youth coaches and parents of 8- to 13-year-olds to use in developing the seven key skills athletes need to excel: flexibility, coordination, balance, stamina, strength, speed, and agility.
     
    Lancaster and Teodorescu include activities and drills to develop overall athleticism as well as sport-specific skills for baseball, basketball, football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis. The authors help kids develop physical skills in settings that are both fun and challenging and provide the foundation for athletic excellence. Kids will achieve long–term benefits such as higher self-esteem and improved fitness levels.
