  • "If we don't take this (obesity crisis) as a really serious priority, all of us individually and as a nation are going to pay a serious price."

    ~Francis Collilns, MD, PHD, Director NIH

  • "Physical activity really is the wonder drug. If you have regular activity, you are less likely to have high blood pressure, to have cancer, to be depressed, to have an injury, or to have arthritis. You feel better about yourself and are more productive."

    HBO: Weight of the Nation, May 2012
    ~Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH, Director CDC

The Issue

  • Our country is suffering from an INACTIVITY PANDEMIC
  • 28% of Americans are sedentary…this % is growing each year
  • The number of Americans who work out frequently is even declining
  • The Lancet, a leading medical journal on global health, has called physical inactivity "a pandemic with far-reaching health, economic, environmental and social consequences".
  • 83% of Americans say "Obesity is the top US health concern"
  • 2/3rd of our country is either overweight or obese
  • There are virtually no US government programs which prevents the obesity crisis by getting kids and adults active
  • Obesity & Inactivity are driving up healthcare costs
