"When I was 8 years old, I started doing push-ups. I just kept working hard every day and I got used to it,” Saberia Burns said.
Since getting into shape, Burns has made it her mission to stay healthy while helping others do the same.
"We've been all around here, to boys and girls clubs, recreation centers, fitness centers,” she said.
"We can stop this together if we eat right and exercise,” she said.
Burns is even stretching beyond Fayetteville. She was recently asked to do her workout routine in Philadelphia and in Washington, D.C.
"You can do anything if you put your mind to it. And exercising is the key to fighting obesity in America,” said Andre Malloy, Burns' father.
Burns will also produce an exercise DVD in March. It should be available in stores later this year.
