Lessons on Improving Public Health for People of All Sizes
What is it that attracts those with excess weight to join a fitness class, gym, or other activity? Sometimes the way these people are treated not just by staff, but by others at these facilities can have a negative effect on their motivation to return. How can we as fitness professional create an atmosphere that promotes positive body image and acceptance for all people within our classes and facilities?
