I have always been a fan of Mrs. Michelle Obama, from the very beginning. I’m serious!! I never hopped on the bandwagon probably because I started it!
What made me sit down and realize her mission for fitness and lowering childhood obesity wasn’t a fad was the Beyonce’ Let’s-Move video. As much as you may hate to admit it, Beyonce has major influence on today’s youth and teaming up with her was definitely a positive power move.
In my senior year I had to choose a topic for my final paper entitled “Resistance Training as a Way to Combat Childhood Obesity” I researched the Let’s Move Campaign closely as well as the NFL Play 60 campaign, Food Fit Philly and Campbell Soup Anti-Obesity program in Philadelphia & Camden respectively. I was overloaded with information regarding everyone’s quest to stop this exponential upward trend of childhood obesity. Those 4 were great programs!
