Childhood Obesity – The Problem…The Solution

The Problem
Childhood obesity is one of the most urgent public health threats facing our country. Today, more than one-third of all children and adolescents in the United States—approximately 25 million kids—are overweight or obese. The epidemic already is affecting our kids’ health and quality of life in ways we’ve never seen before. Children are being diagnosed with conditions previously considered “adult” illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension. They also suffer from bone and joint disorders, depression and poor self-esteem, and they’re at higher risk for cardiovascular disease, stroke and colon, kidney and breast cancers.

Estimates show that obesity costs our country up to $117 billion per year in direct health expenses and lost productivity. Childhood obesity alone carries a huge price tag—up to $14 billion per year in direct costs to treat children. If left unabated, the epidemic threatens to overwhelm and destabilize the nation’s health delivery and financing systems.

The Solution
Exergame Fitness products are leading the fight in childhood obesity like never before. Every day more and more YMCA’s, Schools, JCC’s, Park Districts and Hospitals are implementing fun interactive products that are achieving results and better yet, becoming “voluntary” addictive to kids, teens and adults of all ages. No other form of exercise is gaining ground on the rapid incline of obese Americans and Exergame Fitness is leading the fight. Our approach is direct, practical and strong. Results are constant and like never before we are seeing a healthier America. We hope you enjoy your visit to Exergame Fitness and please contact us if you have any questions regarding any of the products we carry.
