It is sad how many young people are becoming obese by the day. In 2014, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported than more than a third of Americans aged above 20 were obese. CDC predicted that by 2020, this fraction is likely to escalate to two-thirds and as such caution needs to be taken before we are sorry about how the rain has beaten our backs. The trend is being propagated by our love for technology and laziness such that we never want to do things with our hands but prefer to have gadgets to carry out even the most basic of tasks.

Fitness does not call for all of us to join  or get into a tedious millitary ironman training plan. No, it calls for us to try as much as possible to stay fit while still working in our offices and optimately taking every break as a workout period.
