Positive all around show

Very positive. Daniel Curtis Lee, host brings in the comical side with some of the NBA's greats doing something positive. Hoping this will let kids know that if you work at something you will get better and better.

Whether or not your kids are basketball fans, this show's motivating messages about physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, and working hard to achieve your goals aren't easy to miss. Of course, if they are NBA nuts, it will be all the more fun (and impressive) to hear these words coming directly from some of their favorite players.

With professional athletes' misbehavior making headlines on a seemingly daily basis, it's refreshing to see them in the positive light cast by this worthwhile show. The guys openly discuss the hardships they've overcome on their way to fame -- including being overweight and feeling small compared to their peers -- and they talk about how they changed their physical routines to improve their strength and stamina. In other words, NBA Fit gives these pros the chance to be the kind of role models that kids really need.
