“Just Keep Moving, Just Keep Moving” – Promoting Physical Fitness
It is imperative that Americans wake up and realize that obesity is taking over our nation. While more information and statistics are being produced every day about how important daily physical activity is, people continue to sit back and not do anything to improve the issue. People of all ages can improve their health and well-being by becoming more physically active on a regular basis. Obesity has more than tripled in Americans sense 1980. Being Overweight is a risk factor for health conditions such as diabetes and is associated with problems such as poor self-esteem. I intend to stress to everyone how important daily activity is in their life. I have created the program of “Just Keep Moving, Just Keep Moving” to motivate people to keep moving to improve their health. I came up with the idea from watching the Disney movie, Nemo. The fish named Dori is always singing “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming”, and eventually Dori and Nemo’s father reach their goal in finding Nemo. I plan on reaching many different goals with this program. Improving your health is definitely the important issue, but I truly believe that daily physical activity improves a person’s soul and mind, by relieving stress from the body. I will not focus on one particular age group of people because the lack of daily physical activity is a problem for all different age groups.
Despite the proven benefits of physical activity, more than 50% of adults do not get enough physical activity to provide health benefits. Though this is true, adults are not the only ones that are insufficient to physical activity. Among children and teens, sixteen percent (over 9 million young people) are considered overweight. Stating the facts are very important, but for changes to actually be made, people need to “just keep moving”.
My plan is to get as much information out into the public as I can. I will speak to children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens at different schools and public events. I also plan to exercise and work with large groups of people to help get them started with becoming more physically active on a day to day basis. With encouragement and motivation, “Just Keep Moving” will bring this nation’s health statistics to a much lower level.
Obviously, the facts and information are out there. If the media feeds people with ways they can improve their health, why is it still such a problem? “Just Keep Moving” is the perfect opportunity for me to become the driving force of change in improving American’s health and bringing about a much higher self-esteem in everyone.
Our country is exploding with new daily workout plans and different foods to eat or to not eat. I will reinforce these ideas and their importance to American’s everywhere. I want to be the leader of a nation in need of health improvement. I want for people to live longer and happier lives without having to use so many of the medicines and new technologies of today’s world. The people of this nation need this issue addressed and emphasized to them over and over again, until a change is made. With the help of U.S. Physical Activity Statistics database, we will strive to succeed in making a difference in people’s lives throughout America
