Children should be outdoors, actively running around and playing tag, not sitting in front of the TV all day watching movies or playing video games. Sadly, this is what many children do for the majority of the day and sadly, a percentage of overweight children in the United States are growing at an alarming rate, with one out of three children now considered overweight or obese. This gives them a predisposition to be overweight for the rest of their lives as well as be susceptible to diabetes and heart disease. How can your turn the tide so your children are not part of the percentage?

Failure to stretch after being sedentary for long periods of time can result in lower back pain, and even injury if you forget to stretch before exercising - injuries can lead to chronic pain if not treated properly. To avoid this make sure that you stretch daily, and most importantly, always warm up and stretch before and after you workout.

If you're looking to burn fat fast, it's vital that you're paying careful attention to not only what you're doing in the gym as you go about your workout sessions but also to what you're doing in the kitchen with your diet. Many people often overlook one of these vital components of their fat loss plan and rather than focusing on both areas to create a complete fat loss protocol they focus on just a single one and then suffer in the results they see.
