When reading the magazine reps I came across another article that is not only scary but sad and disturbing too. "According to new data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every three American adults is obese, and two out of every three are overweight. Among children and teens the numbers aren’t much better: roughly 17% of children aged 2-19 are considered obese. The obesity rate among women and children hasn’t changed measurably over the past decade, and it’s remained largely flat among men for the past five years. America spends over $140 billion each year on obesity-related health issues, almost double what it spends on cancer." It feels great to be a very small help to this epidemic by being one personal trainer helping my clients but I hope to one day be a huge help somehow with getting America in shape!
