Description

Read about what’s making headlines in the health and fitness industry with this continuing education quiz. Discover research showing that children as young as 2½ years old seem to have developed a bias against overweight children. Read how the fitness industry is booming, with fitness industry revenues increasing over the past 5 years in just about all sectors. Learn creative ways to draw new business and keep current members inspired, and how diabetes rates are expected to soar. Did you know that a great deal of discussion has taken place regarding the importance of physical education (PE) in schools? Fortunately, many districts throughout the U.S. are required by law to offer PE, but are they compliant? Find out about the compliance data—the results are not promising. Read about the U.S. Postal Service’s new series of forever stamps, which support the effort of improving physical activity levels, and how yoga may help a variety of stress-related conditions. New research suggests that “fat talk” is toxic and has negative effects, and also that fit people are more likely to vote. So much information packed into one quiz!
