With obesity levels being on the rise in the UK and physical activity being on the decrease, this has unfortunately caused chronic health conditions to increase in young adults. According to the Overseas Development Institute, over 1 billion people in developed countries such as the UK are classed as being medically overweight or obese. It is argued that one of the main reasons for this cause is from the advertisements of processed foods.
A shocking statistic was released by the Overseas Development Institute, in which 17% of deaths in the UK are young people who have a low level of cardiorespiratory fitness. Many professionals with in the fitness industry are requesting for more polices to be put in place to help reduce these numbers and educate the UK public more about leading a healthy lifestyle that includes exercising. The Chairman of ukactive Fred Turok has stated that “it’s not just about the size of our waists, but about the fitness of our hearts”.
The UK and the fitness industry are crying out for more professionals to help combat this problem. Focus Training works with many of the UK’s leading health and fitness professionals and you could be joining them with our range of personal training courses that we provide.
