Get Up, Get Out, Get Going

The more I reflect on the subject of yesterday’s post, the more realize the dimensions of the problem. Some way, some how there must be a revolution to change the patterns of behavior and get people to rethink their approach to fitness. I am convinced that this must be a grass roots revolution lead by leaders in individual communities. I am really not sure how to go about this, that is why I am throwing out this idea. There are certainly brighter, more innovative people out there than me who can get this going. Maybe we need to think of this like a virus, start small in your neighborhood and let it spread. One thing that I am convinced of is that throwing more money at the problem without a plan will have minimal impact.

Thanks for linking fitness & stress fractures. It's looked at as an overuse phenomenon, but most of the time it's too much too soon. Or, not enough variety (conditioning=distance running). Acquiring bone density is a tedious process; something that can't be addressed by a crash program.

Society - Supersize it please. Hey my kid broke his leg during gym class; I want someone held accountable to this...I'm suing!!!

Technology - Video games...wonder why an 11 year old has hip flexors problem.

Here is my thought...Don't be surprise to see college PE curriculum teaches student to dumb down the physical education. Why? Liability...risk of safety is more important...Cover your A**.

Hey kids...don't go on the monkey bars...don't run, jump and fun because your growth plates have not fully set yet.
