Kids Gyms to tackle Child-Obesity
California (GroundReport) - With obesity among children becoming a serious issue, parents are enrolling their children in fitness centers or buying child-sized equipment for a more grueling workout than ballet or Little League.
According to statistics, approximately 1.3 million children are enrolled in health club or Kids gyms.
One such health club is Action Kids Fitness Center with two locations in California.
''We really pride ourselves on the energy and excitement we put into making fitness fun,'' said Steve Ewing, the center's co-founder.
He added, ''We don't want them to be thinking they are overweight and obese. We want them to acknowledge that moving is fun.''
