Staying active when you are short on time requires planning. It’s easy to make excuses for failing to find a way to fit physical activity into your busy schedule, but there is always time to squeeze in a little exercise. The key to achieving success is by recognizing the importance of daily physical activity for your health, and remembering that little bursts of movement throughout the day can be just as effective as longer workouts.

Is Cross Fit For You?

Cross-fit is basically an athletic and lifestyle training program that focuses on a broad spectrum of activities and changes, rather than specializing in one specific area of fitness.  It’s a very popular program, including aspects of running, gymnastics, lifting, and more.  So how do you determine whether this is a program that will benefit you?  Partly that depends on what you’re looking to achieve, what sort of time you have to devote to it, and what sacrifices you’re willing to make.  Here’s a look at some of the advantages and disadvantages to cross-fit so that you can determine whether it’s a good idea for you or not.

U.S. Obesity Rates

Obesity rates in the United States are rising – there’s no question about that – and for years have been higher than other countries.  Latest statistics show that over 35% of American adults are obese and almost 20% of American children are obese.  Mexico and the United Kingdom are a distant second – closer to 25% of adults are obese in both countries – and Japan, with a lowly 3.2%, is number 28 on the list.  The weighted average of the top 28 states is over 14%, but still far lower than the United States average.

On average in the U.S., minorities seem to have higher rates of obesity, with the exception of Asians, who were significantly lower than all other people groups.  White Americans show lower obesity rates than all other groups except Asians.  Another trend indicates that education and poverty levels seem to have an impact on obesity.  Adults who make less than $15,000 a year have obesity rates of about 10% higher than adults who make over $50,000 in the United States.  Adults who failed to graduate high school have obesity rates of 12% higher than adults who graduated college.

State by state, results tend to vary, with a higher prevalence of obesity in the south and Midwest and lower obesity rates in the coastal areas.  Colorado has been the state with the lowest obesity (Read More....)
