Anytime Fitness wants parents, children angry enough to make a lasting change [news]
The kids are angry. That's what one fitness chain claims as it has partnered with the Coalition of Angry Kids during the month of September. William White, of Anytime Fitness, said childhood obesity isn't a children's epidemic. “It's a family epidemic,” he said. One out of three children are overweight or obese, according to national health campaigns. And if a parent is overweight, the child is 50 percent more likely to be overweight. That's why it's time for parents to start taking charge, White said.
