Who's In Control?

The facts are obvious and few dispute them. Many major health problems and quality of life detractors are due to the choices people make. Knowledge alone isn't enough - people need to make the decision to be in control of their health and make the changes necessary.

Obesity with its myriad of related health problems such as diabetes type 2, heart disease, many cancers, alzheimers, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoarthritis, respiratory problems, sleep problems, liver disease, and mental health problems is the number one health threat in the United States. With 70% of the adult population now overweight or obese, and with these numbers rising each year, we are on a path to beyond crisis - let's call it catastrophe.

You may not be able to change the world, change the country, or even your city or town. But you can set an example and perhaps inspire someone close to you. Take control of your own health and fitness. If you're overweight or obese, do something about it. Your body will thank you, and you just might save the life of someone you love.
