Get Up, Get Out, Get Going


The more I reflect on the subject of yesterday’s post, the more realize the dimensions of the problem. Some way, some how there must be a revolution to change the patterns of behavior and get people to rethink their approach to fitness. I am convinced that this must be a grass roots revolution lead by leaders in individual communities. I am really not sure how to go about this, that is why I am throwing out this idea. There are certainly brighter, more innovative people out there than me who can get this going. Maybe we need to think of this like a virus, start small in your neighborhood and let it spread. One thing that I am convinced of is that throwing more money at the problem without a plan will have minimal impact.
