Today is World Obesity Day. This campaign was launched in 2015 to reverse the obesity crisis by supporting practical solutions to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Childhood obesity is a big problem that cannot be ignored. According to data obtained by the Guardian, due to the relentless marketing of junk food and the lack of regulations regarding these advertisements, the number of obese children worldwide is expected to rise from 150 million today to 250 million by 2030. China will have nearly 62 million obese children aged 5 to 19 within 10 years.

Overweight children are at high risk of becoming overweight adults, placing them at risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. They are also more prone to develop stress, sadness, and low self-esteem.

Obesity prevention begins at a young age. Here at World Trainer we promote healthy habits and encourage kids to exercise regularly. We’re letting teens experience how much fun working out is, and that it makes you feel stronger both physically and mentally.
