Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

There are widespread worries about the fitness of America's kids. Currently, more that 33% of youth aged two to 19 - more than 25 million youth - are overweight or obese. In addition, 60% of obese youth aged five to 10 have at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease (such as high cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin or blood pressure) Youth Fitness: An Action Plan for Shaping America's Kids takes on the difficult task of reversing these grim statistics by guiding young Americans in their journey to become healthier and get fit. The book outlines age-appropriate applications for building strength, increasing aerobic fitness, improving flexibility and making better nutritional choices. The authors tackle many issues that plague today's kids such as the sedentary youth, obesity, diabetes and more with the hopes of making fitness a part of every youth's life for now and in the future.
