Lorna Kleidman Responds to an Article Concerning Military Weight Loss
Date:12/24/2012

Bohemia, N.Y. (PRWEB) December 24, 2012

On December 24, Lorna Kleidman offers weight loss advice in response to an article published by the Aiken Standard which reports that obesity is cited as the major reason that military recruits are deemed unfit for service.

According to the Aiken Standard, a report from the Armed Forces Surveillance Center “finds that being overweight is the major reason that civilian military recruits that are deemed medically unfit for service. Military training and service is physically demanding, requiring a high level of strength and endurance. These attributes are more likely to be lacking among overweight recruits. Equally troubling is the fact that poor physical fitness disqualifies a high percentage of young men and women who are at a ‘healthy’ weight.”

In the early '50s, recruits ran into a similar problem which resulted in the creation of the President’s Council on Youth Fitness, reports the article. The Aiken Standard currently estimates 27 percent of Americans between the ages of 17 to 24 to fall into this category.

Lorna Kleidman, a trainer of kettlebell exercises, responds to the article by saying, “The rising obesity rates must be addressed. According to the article, even recruits that are a seemingly healthy weight are being disqualified due to poor physical fitness. For anyone hopeful to get in shape, I recommend using kettlebells. Just twenty minutes a day can make all the difference.”

Kleidman continues: “In addition, I applaud all recruits who work so hard to defend our country and I wish all hopeful recruits luck in their efforts to get and remain fit.”

Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovated methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy to use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
