History reveals that poorly prepared fitness and medical leaders have been placed into power positions influencing our attitudes about exercise. This has resulted in stifling of preventive health care and a fitness movement that has been suppressed except commercially. We’re spending money but not much is happening.
Childhood Obesity is epidemic. “Adult on-set” diabetes is being found in kids as young as four years of age. At least a dozen countries have citizens that live longer than we do in spite of the fact that we spend more money on health care than anyone in the world.
From the question and answer sessions at the end of the thousands of fitness lectures that I have provided all over the country over the past 31 years I have learned what Americans think about fitness:
A recent report to the Oregon Health Policy Commission on “Promoting Physical Activity and Healthy Eating among Oregon’s Children,” concluded, “Children’s behaviors are substantially affected by the influential adults in their lives-parents, grandparents, and teachers. Efforts to address childhood obesity in Oregon will not be successful unless they also include interventions that influence the healthy eating and physical activity behaviors of adults as well as children.”
At Ogie Shaw Fitness-Community Fitness Leaders we are dedicated to “Improving The Effectiveness of Exercise Programs” by providing the following solutions:
Ogie Shaw Fitness is a spin-off from American Physical Fitness and Fitness Motivation Institute of America. These are the organizations made up of the individuals responsible for the development, research and marketing of the isokinetic-rope friction exercise program used in the Apollo 11 moon landing and two other space flights. This exercise program used an accommodating exercise device to condense exercise time from 30-40 minutes to 10-20 minutes. The exercise device we now use for this program is called the Isorobic Exerciser.
I was recruited to become a part of the national network of medical and fitness professionals who were trained to be the exclusive marketing agents and instructors for this exercise program. In the early 1980’s there was a national reorganization that allowed me to work under my own company name and do more research in finding solutions to the problem of motivation to exercise.
I created Community Fitness Leaders training as a way to share my findings with other medical and fitness leaders who shared my commitment to fitness. I continue to speak nationally and meet weekly with clients for personal fitness testing and counseling. Because of the exciting products and services that I continue to develop for fitness motivation I am more optimistic than ever about America’s fitness future. Will you help me by first getting fit, then participating in my weekly on-line fitness test counseling program? This will help establish a national fitness standard that all fitness participants can shoot for. Then all fitness leaders can more effectively design exercise programs.
