    Once we understand that our body is made up of billions of tiny individual cells and that these cells collectively are responsible for our health, it becomes very clear that an unhealthy body will have a difficult time losing fat, gaining muscle, driving up energy levels, thinking with greater clarity, possessing better skin and hair, having fewer colds and ills and generally performing positively.

    We’re all culprits of taking our health slightly for granted, and often it takes a drastic change or in some cases worse to give us the reality check we need to begin looking after the bodies that look after us! We’re so heavily involved in the industry that promotes fitness, exercise and diet it’s very easy to become lost in what sits at the core of wellness.

    It’s celebrated once a year, excusing old and young from all guilt whilst consuming endless piles of pancakes topped with whatever the taste buds desire. But often we’re hindered with where to start. There’s an abundance of recipes out there ranging from healthy to hearty, from blueberry to bizarre, and so we search the web endlessly, just hoping for one to tickle our fancy.

    Childhood and adolescent obesity is a growing concern worldwide. The number of overweight and obese children in the UK has doubled in the last two decades, with one in five 15 year olds classed as obese. In 2006, a UK study (National Centre for Social Research) identified that 18.9% of boys and 17.8% of girls aged between 2 and 15 years were classified as obese. In addition to this the same study highlighted that a further 13.7% of boys and 16.3% of girls were overweight. This quantified to 2.3 million obese children in the UK, at the time. Worryingly for the UK, such statistics reveal our children are some of the unhealthiest in Europe. So how can fitness professionals help? It is proven that very few children put on weight because of an underlying medical problem, but actually put on weight because their lifestyle sees a lack of physical activity and an unhealthy diet. Personal Training and Fitness professionals have the potential to be at the forefront to assist in improving this epidemic, by educating parents and helping children be more active. So the main questions are, what are the causes of childhood obesity in the UK and what can we, as fitness professionals, do to help?
