Children who are too young to walk should still be exercising. That's the basic message the British Government has in its fight against childhood obesity.
A study last week by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation said that each state saw obesity rates go up and recommended better programs for kids.
NEWS7 spoke with the Roanoke Athletic Club and they say kids are very receptive to doing physical activity and learning how to eat better. They also said that the kids are each others strongest support.
"Some can do 60 sit-ups, easy, no problem. And some can do just one. But doing it with other kids and just seeing other kids being active helps a lot," said Maygon Sowder, Roanoke Athletic Club.
At the RAC, they encourage kids to do obstacle courses, and sometimes the kids have group training with the club's instructors.
