180901 ~ Saved By The Barbell
Saved by the Barbell is an annual, world-wide CrossFit community Labor Day workout and fundraising effort to bring CrossFit to more kids everywhere.
Each year, rates of chronic diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity, and liver disease – conditions once associated with the sick and elderly – rise among children, from toddlers to teenagers.
And yet each year, more schools reduce their physical education programs. Recess is becoming a thing of the past. Cafeteria food, deeply flawed nutrition education, and sugar-stocked vending machines only contribute to the problem. And schools where children grow up in poverty, food deserts, and disadvantaged communities pose even greater challenges to kids’ health.
As adults, we ask ourselves: What can I do today to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the world, in my community, in my neighborhood, on my block, for the better?
Our community knows the answer. Kids need to move. To play. To stand up from their desks and couches and go outside, go to the gym, learn how to move and nourish their bodies in a safe and healthy community.
Today you are asked to bring a child! Let's show them that fitness can be fun, and help start them on the path to wellness!!
