The Facts are in

Do a quick google search and you’ll get the facts.

  • 1 in 4 Us adults meets recommended physical activity guidelines.

  • Low levels of physical activity contribute to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and obesity.

  • Annual health care costs connected to low levels of physical activities are $117 billion.

  • From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.

  • Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer that are some of the leading causes of preventable, premature death.

  • The medical cost for people who have obesity is $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.

With these staggering facts, you’d think we'd all be riding that health and fitness train.

But unfortunately, most of us are waiting at the wrong train stop.

Whether you blame it on a lack of understanding, lack of education, lack of resources, lack of a supportive lifestyle and environment – either way, we’re not optimizing our health which means we’re not leading our best lives.

That bank account of yours can be full, but if your health is lacking, if you have difficulty moving around, if processed and sugary foods are how you relieve stress – you are hurting.

This is precisely why at Functional Lifestyles our approach is not to just give you a diet and fitness program with a few hyper-exaggerated words of encouragement. Whether you work with us in-person or virtually from the comfort of your home, we are here to educate you and provide you with the know-how to make adjustments on how to approach your health and fitness – emotionally, mentally and physically. Most of all, we're here to keep you on track!

Will it happen overnight? No.

Will it happen? Yes.

If you begin to take small steps towards your health and fitness, there is no reason you can’t be enjoying your best life.
