Our partners at PHIT America.org are out to reverse the “obesity pandemic” gripping the United States. Apparently the U.S. Army is taking note as well.

More great news from PHIT

Our partners PHIT America.org are making tremendous strides (no pun intended) toward getting America fit and healthy. Their land mark legislation is getting closer to passing in Congress and, when it does, we’ll all benefit!

Sports on television viewership down in young people

Our partners at PHITAmerica.org are trying to get America active. So why be concerned that fewer young people are watching sports on TV? A decline in viewership corresponds with a decline in overall interest in sports. Read the article to see why we should be alarmed.

Walk more, weigh less

The Stanford University study sent to us by our partners at PHIT America.org should come as no surprise. By using smartphone data, the study was able to track people’s walking habits in 100 countries, (the US was ranked 42nd in most-walked) and drew some interesting conclusions. We know the weather can be extreme this time of year, but if you do more walking you’ll lose weight and live longer. And you’ll enjoy it.

Activity level of 19 year-olds akin to the average 60 year-old

That sad statistic is brought to us by our partners at PHIT America.org via a study done by the Washington Post. Isn’t 19 when we should be at our physical peak, running around having fun? According to PHIT this is a result of a combination of reduced recess time in schools, (creating sedentary habits) and increased screen time because of technology. Put down those phones and video games and get outdoors today!
