This is all about leading by example! Spread awareness and love by taking 1 minute out of your day for exercise, and show the kids how easy and fun it is to get moving. Do squats with your kids, lift your wife for your friends kids, lunge to the grocery store for a neighbors kids; have fun with it.
Video yourself, post it, tag it, and keep spreading the word by doing reps for kids that you know. Set an example and show the world how beneficial exercise can be. Show how doing a little for someone can go a long way. Do it for yourself while doing it for the kids.
Want the Grim Stuff? Childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century and it continues to increase at an alarming rate. In 2015 over 42 million kids under the age of five were overweight worldwide. If current trends continue, by 2040 that number will change to a supersized 70 million.
Obesity in children is associated with a wide range of serious health complications including a higher risk of bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, psychological factors (such as poor self-esteem and stigmatization) and premature onset of diabetes and heart disease. Most adolescents do not outgrow obesity unless intervention is involved. Also, did you know that 59% of Canadian adults are overweight? Reps4Kids might just help 2 epidemics at once!
The best part about child obesity- it is PREVENTABLE!
