Missing the Boat, Sort of...

Now, don't get me wrong. Getting kids in the gym is awesome! It gets them excited about fitness and hopefully develop a life long love of working out, staying strong and being healthy.


Is that really attacking the root-cause of the situation? No.

It all starts at home. The parents need to be a role model and take responsibility for getting the kids off the Xbox, eating junk and getting them outside.

A recent study showed, on average, kids spend 23 hours watching tv or playing video games in one week - some studies show as high as 5 hours a day!

Never a quick fix, look for the long term solution. Look toward a lifestyle change.
