Getting America's Girls into Shape!

"We want to provide a place for women to be able to acclimate themselves to a healthy lifestyle at a young age. We feel it is important to offer them this opportunity so that they can begin to develop positive living habits in their teenage years that can start them out on the right path for a healthy life as they grow older. We’ve seen the studies and have seen the rise in the overweight epidemic facing the youth of America. We want to make sure that our younger generation of women has the opportunity to experience the thrill of working out in a safe, comfortable, female-only environment and improve their lives through fitness."

The decision to develop this program for teens was an easy one when confronted with the startling statistics. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 50% of students in grades 9 through 12 watched television more than 2 hours per day once they got home from school. Combined with the failing efforts of our nation's physical education programs, our children aren't receiving the necessary tools to become healthy adults. Our teenage girls are in desperate need of direction to keep healthy.

According to the same study, overweightedness and obesity has reached epidemic proportions in our country on all levels. In 2003, an estimated 34% of U.S. adults and 15% of our children were overweight or obese. Those figures are nearly three times larger then they were in 1980. This alarming rise in overweightedness and obesity is due in part to the more modern society that we live in but mostly because we have not been confronting this problem where it starts, in our childhood.

Through easy access to fitness, education and awareness, we have an opportunity to confront these conditions and prevent unnecessary disease and disability that foreshadows their future. Through education and awareness, we have the ability to empower them to make healthy lifestyle choices. Taking action at this age will have a profound effect on increasing the quality and years of healthy living and on eliminating health disparities in the United States.
