Roland Martin featured celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to address the recent study that indicates “black girls don’t benefit from exercise compared to their white counterparts”.

Jenkins doesn’t agree and says that their are quite a few factors that the researchers didn’t take into account such as puberty, estrogen hormonal change, as well as the differences in genetics. She does recommend however that parents need to do more active sports and outdoor activities with young girls just as they do with young boys. 

This is a really interesting piece, listen to more of Jeanette Jenkins’ thoughts below!
