Of course, it helps that everyone rides a bike here or walks as well .. the magic of a little exercise besides moving a keyboard :-)
Need to boycott 24 ounce sodas in school and supersize me EVERYTHING... from the US.
Also need to get kids started on TRX straps early in life .. they can take it with them anywhere .. unlike a gym or weights ... and have no excuse any longer for not staying truly fit and functionally strong. http://www.fitnessanywhere.com
It's funny you say that. A friend of mine just got back from a week vacation to Disney World in Orlando. They are in shape people that actually spent the last year as a goal to get into even better shape for this trip. Anyway, they said they noticed there were 2 kinds of people there for the most part - Fat Americans, and in-shape foreigners. Hardly anyone was inbetween/normal. It was one exterme or the other.
Now, it's obvious anywhere that a lot of Americans just don't care and have become overweight. But it really becomes apparant at places like Disney World where you can see the side-by-side comparisons.
