Strength Training Can Help Change Obesity Rates

Healthychildren.org

The overall message of the PSA shares the prevalence of bad health behaviors and statistics on obesity. Much of the data reflects children, and that the majority of children who are obese, remain obese as adults. This data is worse than most may believe, and shows just how common eating fast food and being obese really is. Weightlifting is something that can be done by individuals who are obese, because it can be adjusted and done at your own pace. Once the obese individual gets more into the routine, the weight will start to disappear, and most likely, eating habits will also become healthier. Once an individual becomes dedicated to weightlifting, eating junk food is less of a craving. I believe that if people started paying more attention to how bad the statistics really are, they would start taking actions to better their health like strength training.
