🚨50% of all young Americans (12-21) are not vigorously active! 🚨

Can you believe that? That is insane. 14% report NO physical activity at all and young females are actually less active than males. Also, participation in all types of physical activity declines strikingly as age or grade in school increases.

These are some crazy numbers and it is no wonder that obesity and other chronic diseases are becoming such a problem in America. It is estimated that the prevalence of obesity in America is over 40%.

We need to start instilling in our youth the benefits of physical activity, especially during this time of quarantines and lock downs. Our society is in grave risk of creating negative habits that will be difficult to overcome when all of this is lifted. It is vitally important to make it a priority to get up and move.

Make physical activity a part of your day. Create a positive habit now and encourage your children to do the same.
