Health & Fitness Courses Online
One in three eleven-year-olds in the Western World are either overweight or obese. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) modern society is facing an epidemic of health problems in the decades to come spurred by weight problems. Being overweight means a person is at a higher risk of developing additional complications, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
For centuries, the great problem affecting society is ensuring that people eat enough. Today, the problem is ensuring that they eat well. From supermarkets to local producers, people have never had such a wide variety of choice. It has never been easier to eat well but also, to eat poorly. A poor diet will only compound weight problems while depriving the body of precious nutrients and vitamins needed to ensure a healthy life.
Eating is only part of the issue. Even compared to a few decades ago, work, study and play has been revolutionised by technology with the effect that people are exercising less than ever before. Up to 80% of adults in the UK deemed as putting their health at risk through a lack of exercise.
With attitudes changing and people become more informed, opportunities in the health and fitness sectors are expected to boom. Whether you’re looking for a new career in these expanding areas or just want to live better, a course in Health or Fitness from ADL can help.
