Welcome to The Playground

"A Healthy Outside Begins on the Inside" ~ Robert Urich

Welcome to The Playground

A community dedicated to support parents & teens to be healthy, feel good in their bodies, and engage in a life founded in play,

Through play and interactions with others we learned: 

  • How to connect with others
  • What we enjoyed and maybe not so much    
  • How we fit into a group of friends and strangers alike    
  • To explore our identities by trying new things    
  • How our bodies were capable of amazing feats    
  • What brings us joy

As we move into adolescence and our teen years, we are often no longer welcome on the playground. We also begin to feel some disconnect from the groups we played with for so long. People are changing and finding new spaces in the world, but some of us struggle to find that sense of true belonging.

We may be able to fit in, but never regain that sense of freedom to be our authentic selves like we could on the playground.

The Playground is an online wellness community for teens, tweens, & their moms who are looking to support their athletic & wellness goals with a holistic approach to movement, nutrition, and mental wellness.

Here you'll find tools that help you feel good in your body & work towards your performance goals - both on & off the field.

It is here to help us BECOME who we are meant to be and on our own terms.

We know that having our moms on board and supporting our transitions is key, and so the Playground also has a space for them.

Many of us are also navigating a new path where either our teens are struggling and we don't know quite how to help, or their experience is triggering our own experience from those years, and that emotion is getting in the way of seeing their needs clearly.

In addition, we're moving through a new season in our own lives that reflects what our daughters are going through. The physical changes in our bodies, and the emotional changes where we are questioning if we're living our own authentic lives, or if we need a bit of a reset to get back on track.

In order to support our teens' journeys, we need to also support our own wellness needs. The Playground has always been a place for parents to connect and support each other, and to learn new approaches to parenting - including health and wellness. 

The Playground is kind of a Health 2.0 class, where we focus on all the different wellness factors to help teens transition from childhood to adulthood, while supporting their performance goals in all areas of life.
We go beyond the basics of nutrition and PE, and bring in socio-emotional learning to help our teens (and us as moms) finally understand how to make health functional and apply it to our lives. It's an experiential process where teens can hop from interest to interest, try new things, and find out the best tools that keep them aligned, nourished, and engaged in play.

The Playground has spaces specifically to help teens & women explore their interests around health and wellness, connect to like-minded teens, and also provide support for their moms. Because we all know that having a supportive team, is the foundation to moving into your authentic self and letting yourself be seen.

This space is open to any mom or teen who feels that this group speaks to you. We speak about issues related to boys, girls, and those who fall in between. The key goal of The Playground is to support both moms and teens and follow your lead to grow.

If you are called to join us, you are welcome!
