The highest medical authority in the country has stated what Fitness USA has known for a long time - America is overweight! The former U.S. Surgeon General, David Satcher, issued a report titled, “The Surgeon General’s Call To Action To Prevent And Decrease Overweight And Obesity.” “Overweight and obesity may soon cause as much preventable disease and death as cigarette smoking.” Over 300,000 deaths in the U.S. each year are associated with obesity, compared to 400,000 deaths associated with cigarette smoking. The total costs associated to obese adults each year amounts to $117 billion.
61% of U.S. adults and 13% of our children are overweight! Only 3% of all Americans meet the requirements set forth by the Federal Government’s Food Pyramid Guidelines for a balanced diet. Less than 33% of Americans meet the recommendations set by the Federal Government of 30 minutes of physical activity at least 5 times each week. 40% of all adults engage in NO physical activity at all. You know these people - they’re all around you - they’re your friends, family and neighbors! What can you do to help? Introduce them to Fitness USA!
We know many of your friends and family members are confused by all the various diet plans and weight loss program claims. They’ve probably tried some of these plans and failed. Why? Because diets alone don’t work. Yes, some people seem to have success with some programs initially, but in the long run, they return to their old weight, only to be frustrated and disappointed again. No one plan works for everyone. That’s why Fitness USA will design an individual plan for each of its members to satisfy their individual needs. We know that a balanced diet and regular exercise are the keys to success in fitness.
Our certified fitness instructors are trained to help each member. First, they define goals, and then set a plan to insure your goals are achieved. The International Sports Science Association (ISSA), which certifies all our trainers, has a curriculum that covers a broad range of studies including anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, nutrition, supplements, flexibility techniques, personalized diet, and exercise programming.
Prior to their certification with the ISSA, all our instructors must successfully complete the Fitness USA comprehensive study, testing and hands-on training program which has been developed and perfected over the last 50 years. They have the answers! So, accept the call to action sounded by the Surgeon General and join the fight for health.
Bring your family and friends in for a visit and introduce them to the staff. Their future good health depends on it!
