Americans health, why are they obsessed.
The American health and fitness boom all started in the late1980's and early 1990's, and was caused and prolonged by three basic factors: The focus of unhealthy people by television programs and media, The government research and media use to let people know the fact of heart disease and heart attacks being one of the main causes of death in America, and finally the fact that the health and fitness industry has grown to become worth $52.9 billion and is constantly coming out with activities and products designed to get and keep us interested in working out".
The immediate cause of the boom of health and fitness that caused the American people to become obsessed is the attention it received from the media, especially television shows. They where using models to exploit people and show them how they should look. In earlier times, hourglass figures were the product of genetics and corsets, and the emaciated Kate Moss look could simply be achieved by starvation. Many other people noticed this boom and companies such as Tae-Bo and spinning, were created just for the purpose of keeping "us" interested in working out. Despite this revolution in the fitness industry, many false preconceived notions about losing weight persevere and impede the movement. As the media bombard the American public with unrealistic images, a new obsession with fitness has hit the markets.
This boom in health and fitness didn't go unnoticed by many companys and In contrast to spinning, Tae-Bo is not for everybody. Instead, it is a program for the fitness elite. Despite eliminating the overweight, elderly and injury-prone population from its consumers, the videos have had amazing results. This is not only due to the compact calorie-burning tendency of the video, but the variety of moves and music that can also double as a class in self-defense. So basically, Tae-Bo is an excellent cardio and toning workout with the ability to keep people interested.
