The Trainer's Resource for Youth Fitness

The youth of North America are in trouble; we as a nation are following a dangerous disease trend.

  • 35% of boys are overweight in Canada
  • 29% of girls are overweight in Canada
  • We have 2x the level of obesity in pre-adolescents and 3x in adolescents than we did in the 1970’s
  • Children spend an average of three-to-five hours per day in front of the TV or computer

Our youth are in danger; our nation needs leaders.

It is a well known fact that...

children and adolescents need an outlet for their energy; without it, they can get bored, frustrated and angry, leading to all sorts of physical and behavioural issues. What they need is to channel their energy and creativeness into something productive like physical activity.
