One in three children in the United States is overweight or obese, but two local organizations came together Saturday to show parents how they can be the catalyst for change.

Body OverHall hosted a family-friendly boot camp fundraiser for Teach a Kid to Fish.

The local non-profit promotes community support of healthy lifestyles for kids.

Organizers say by working out together, parents help their kids develop healthy habits.

All the moves taught in the class are traditional exercises, like squats and push-ups, but with a fun twist.

And it's not just the kids who benefit - organizers say change starts at the top.

Dr. Karla Ester, Executive Director for Teach a Kid to Fish, says, "We know this that if a parent improves their wellness that a whole family improves their wellness so that's why it's important for parents to really set the tone, to be that role model for their children."
