Fitness Statistics Grim
As you know, health is important but unfortunately, many people don’t do much about it. Well, I’ve come across some indication on just how bad this is in terms of how many of us are really not putting enough importance in our health and fitness. This is important to share with you to give you a better appreciation of the importance of health as well. I was totally blown away when I saw on the evening news earlier this year, about the results of a Statistics Canada survey on fitness habits among Canadians. The fitness statistics are indeed very grim. In fact, they are so shocking that I just had to shoot a Motivational WebTV episode about it to urge my viewers to hopefully be more active in their lives. In fact, I felt that it was my duty as a Canadian motivational speaker to share these results with you.
Personal Development Includes Health
The way I feel it is that personal development should include health. When you work so hard in personal development for your career for example, it’s little use if you will not be healthy enough to actually enjoy the fruits of your labour.
This is not just for adults either as you will see in the video, the Statistics Canada survey covered kids as well and the data for children are even more dismal. Parents of children should take extra note of these results as it relates to their kids and their future personal development.
Here is the video;
The fitness statistics that I reported in this video are for Canada only but I would think that other industrialized nations would have similar data. So I would be curious. Based on your observations in the area in which you live and work, would you say that these StatsCan figures are on par with what’s happening in your community as well? Please feel free to comment below on how you think your community or social circle compares to the Canadian figures here.
