NEW YORK (AP) — America’s weight problem isn’t getting any better, according to new government research.
Overall, obesity figures stayed about the same: About 40 percent of adults are obese and 18.5 percent of children. Those numbers are a slight increase from the last report but the difference is so small that it could have occurred by chance.
As the first stage of my plan to help See America Fit Again, I want to give out (at least) 500 jump ropes to 6th Graders in San Diego County. If you know of a San Diego County Physical Education PE Teacher who might be interested in helping get these free jump ropes into the hands of 6th grader (or maybe even 5th and/or 7th graders as well). Please have them contact Joe Abs – or share this page and comment below.
If you are someone who is into fitness and/or sees the benefit of our youth adopting a healthy, active lifestyle, you will soon have an opportunity to purchase jump ropes for area youth.
The plan is to start locally, this year and then go nationwide in 2018. The more we can get our youth into fitness and good nutrition, the less we will have to rely on unnecessary and expensive governmental health care problems.
If you want to end the Obesity crisis here in America, here is your chance to help! Let’s get our kids creating healthy habits with fitness and nutrition so we can help See America Fit Again!
BTW – if you happen to know a corporation that would like to help reverse the obesity trend in the US, we would absolutely love to create some mutually beneficial partnerships. Relatively small corporate donations can go a lot way to getting jump ropes and other exercise equipment into the hands of our youth who are the future of our cities, counties, states, country and planet.
