The healthcare crisis, could it be our fault?
We have a health care crisis in America and the fingers are pointing in every way but at ourselves. Yes the drug companies and insurance companies have taken advantage of the situation, but the health care crisis is our fault not the drug companies. People would rather pop a pill than take a walk. Thirty minutes five times a week can cut most peoples health care costs by more than a half.
America keeps getting fatter and people keep lowering their commitment level to fitness. If you spent more money on your couch than your treadmill where is your commitment level? If you spend more money on eating fast food than on your health club membership every month what is your destiny. People who spend more on their wide screen television than their home gym will have pants with a waist band that rival their TV’s width. I am not saying that you have to spend more money than you can afford, just take the cash from another area of your life that you are wasting it on. Better equipment is easier and more comfortable to use. People spend more on prescription medicine every month and spend less time on prevention.
As a fitness professional I feel like a failure. I went to see a movie called Wall-E with my five year old and it scared the heck out of me. If you have not seen the movie it showed the human race so out of shape they can’t walk any more and they drive chairs around. Let’s do something before this becomes reality!
Make your commitment today and join a health club, purchase a home gym, hire a personal trainer, or hit the road for a run. Take your health into your own hands and out of the insurance company’s
