We Are Becoming a Nation of Coach Potatoes

Posted: May 7, 2011 in Health

I just read a study by the Physical Activity Council that found that over 60 million people in the U.S. are totally inactive!  A shocking number.  And we can’t pin this all on the seniors since the study found over a third of these people are between the ages of 6 and 34!  Additionally, the number of 6-12 year olds who are inactive has more than doubled since 2008!  Somehow we need to reverse this trend or there will be a grave price to pay down the road.  Take notice and take action.

    I just started working out a couple weeks ago. I feel stronger already. I worry that America is getting too fat, too lazy, too sedentary. Our general diet is the worst in the world. Thanks for giving this issue some notice. You and Michelle Obama, two peas in a pod.
