Why ZUMBATOMIC?

"One in three children in North Carolina are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight and for our adult population, that rate increases to two out of every three. "

"This may be the 1st generation of children having a shorter lifespan than their parents"

  •  Asthma
  • Cardiovascular risks (including high blood pressure, high cholesterol)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Psychological effects of social stigmatization
  •  Sleep apnea

" Exercise has many other benefits for children, in addition to avoiding adult diseases brought on by excess weight and obeseity"

"It's proven that children, whether they are overweight or not, should participate in some form of healthy exercise"
