Your Questions About Health And Fitness

Sandra asks…

What does a health fitness specialist do?

I'm researching different types of professions that go with my B.S. in Exercise Science. So far, I see the same labels.. risk stratification, exercise prescription etc. So I'm asking: what does a health fitness specialist really do?
Any input is appreciated!

Why does Michelle Obama want to promote health & fitness to schoolchildren? Is it because she hates America?

Health & fitness were created by Socialist Secular Homosexuals that hate America.

I really cannot decide if you are a LIberal troll trying to make Cons look bad or it you are for real.
Either way, get this through your head everyone. She is NOT telling you how you have to eat, all she is doing is trying to promote healthy eating. You know just like Laura Bush tried to promote reading and education? I had no problem with that and I have no problem with Mrs Obama trying to educate people on healthy lifestyles. Yes, she does eat fattening food once in a while, so what? She has come out and said everything in moderation.

I need to find financial reports for several LA Fitness branches. Where can I start to investigate?

Yes, I'm doing some research of local health/fitness clubs. I need info from about 2002 – 2007 for LA Fitness & several other similar businesses. Can anyone please point me in the proper direction of where to look for this info……Thank You in advance.

dknol answers:

If these are private companies as opposed to public companies, then their financials will be private.

If you have a friend that sells wholesale, they may be able to run a dun and bradstreet report on them.

Chris asks…

Who is the least active demographic group in the society from a fitness point of view?

Who, what demographic group is the least active group of the society from a health, fitness point of view and why?
How they should be targeted to attract them to healthier lifestyle?

dknol answers:

Where I live, it's middle eastern women and south Asian men and women. Among the reasons, it's not part of their culture to exercise, and they eat high starch high sugar diets.

Female-only gyms can help the women. However, the only realistic solution is for schools to teach the children – all children for that matter – about the importance of proper nutrition and exercise. Hopefully, the kids will encourage their parents to make better food and activity choices.
