The need of Specific Exercise Programs in Schools

  1. 1. “ THE NEED OF NEW PHYSICAL PROGRAMS IN SCHOOLS” TO FIGHT AND WIN AGAINST OBESITY AND DIABETES TYPE 2 By Michael Gonzalez-Wallace & Ricardo Aguilar
  2. 2. USA vs Minnesota Obesity and Diabetes Type 2
  3. 3. Obesity: The Country is facing a crisis USA Vs Minnesota Sixteen percent of children and adolescents ages 6-19 years are overweight. The number of overweight children has doubled and the number of overweight adolescents has tripled since 1980. • Among 2-5 year olds, the prevalence of overweight rose from 7% to 10% between 1994 and 2002. • • Adolescents who are overweight have a 70% chance of being overweight or obese as adults. Between 1986 and 2000, the percentage of individuals with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 40 or greater (i.e., 100 pounds overweight) quadrupled, increasing from about 1 in 200 adults to 1 in 5 In Minnesota , 15-22% of all adolescents are obese, and 13% of children under the age of 5 are overweight. , Overweight and obesity cross gender, racial and socioeconomic lines – although populations of color are disproportionately affected. Source: Minnesota Medical Association
  4. 4. How Does Obesity Affect Kids’ Health? • Children who are overweight and obese are at increased risk of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and various cancers . • Type 2 diabetes –once believed to affect only adults—is now being diagnosed among young people. • Sixty-one percent of overweight 5-10-year-olds already have at least one risk factor for heart disease and 26% have two or more risk factors. • Overweight and obese children are subject to social stigma, bullying and teasing, which frequently manifests itself in poor school performance and mental health issues . How does obesity affect health care costs ? • The average annual health care costs for adults who are obese are 36% higher than for normal weight individuals. Costs are more than twice as high for prescription drugs, 14% higher for outpatient services, and nearly 40% higher for inpatient services. • Among children and adolescents, annual hospital costs related to overweight and obesity have tripled in the past two decades – rising to $127 million during 1997-1999. • Estimates of health care and other costs related to overweight and obesity range from $98 billion to $129 billion Source:
  5. 5. Minnesota and Obesity <ul><li>Minnesota Ranks 25th in Nation for Obesity, New Report Finds State and Federal Obesity Policies are not being successful </li></ul><ul><li>Minnesota has the 25th highest level of adult obesity in the nation at 23.0 percent, and the 13th highest overweight levels for low-income children ages 2-5 at 13.2 percent. The state spent an estimated $258 per person in 2003 on medical-costs related to obesity, which was the 25th highest amount in the nation . </li></ul><ul><li>Source:Trust for American Health </li></ul>
  6. 6. Study;Conclussions <ul><li>The study found that: </li></ul><ul><li>1. The federal government faces organizational issues, including a lack of designated leadership, a bureaucratic tangle of involved agencies, and a need to learn to balance the often competing interests of industry and public health. </li></ul><ul><li>Source:Trust for American Health </li></ul>
  7. 7. Minnesota and its new approach Special Schools
  8. 8. MINNESOTA- its new approach to fight Diabetes 2 and Obesity <ul><li>Why Minnesota? The State of Minnesota is one of the most advanced states in Health Legislation </li></ul><ul><li>The critical situation with obesity and diabetes urges changes in implementation of new physical programs that will guarantee success for our kids health </li></ul>
  9. 9. MINNESOTA <ul><li>MINNESOTA can become the first state to take an active decision in influencing our children’s health through the implementation of new physical programs in schools </li></ul><ul><li>The program suggested will be oriented to achieve the following goals in our children: improve their cardiovascular system and be effective to fight against diabetes 2 or obesity, improve balance (better brain’s reorganization), improve coordination (motor learning skills), improve strength and kids stamina </li></ul><ul><li>Studies have shown that kids with an active physical lifestyle have reported higher academic achievement </li></ul>
  10. 10. USA vs Minnesota Special Schools
  11. 11. THE SITUATION IN OUR SCHOOLS 17% of American Students are overweight Students have fewer opportunities To exercise because testing And budget cuts There is no a specific exercise Program for our kids to Improve 4 essential areas: Critical areas for our kids: Cardiovascular Balance Coordination Strength and stamina Reaching the ideal weight Additionally,candy, soft drinks and Unhealthy food are available Everywhere making difficult To eat right Our children need urgently a specific training program Implemented in schools
  12. 12. GRIM OUTLOOK AT OUR SCHOOLS <ul><li>SOCIAL FACTORS </li></ul><ul><li>ECONOMIC FACTORS </li></ul><ul><li>PHYSICAL EDUCATION@SCHOOLS : PROGRESSIVE REDUCTION OF HOURS </li></ul><ul><li>LACK OF SPECIFIC PHYSICAL PROGRAMS FOR OUR KIDS </li></ul><ul><li>KIDS & STRESS: MORE STRESS CASES HAVE BEEN REPORTED </li></ul><ul><li>KIDS DEPRESSION : MORE CASES HAVE BEEN REPORTED </li></ul><ul><li>KIDS EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (SUCH AS DIABETES 2 AND OBESITY), BALANCE, COORDINATION, </li></ul>WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP OUR CHILDREN?
  13. 13. What Can We Do
  14. 14. What can we do? Why Political Agents are critical in this process <ul><li>COMBINATION OF DIFFERENT AGENTS INVOLVED IN THE CREATION OF NEW POLICIES ABOUT HEALTH AND EXERCISE. WE NEED IN OUR SCHOOLS NEW TECHNIQUES OF PHYSICAL TRAINING AND INCREASE SOCIAL AWARENESS OF THE CRITICAL MOMENT WE ARE LIVING </li></ul>THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW WAYS OF PHYSICAL TRAINING AND THE PHYSICAL MONITORING WILL GUARANTEE THAT OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS ARE TAKEN CARE OF
  15. 15. The Brain Muscle Workout Kids need to exercise in a very specific manner to fight against Diabetes and Obesity
  16. 16. Obesity A recent study suggests that obesity threatens to decrease life expectancy for future generations of Americans – unless meaningful interventions are made across the social, environmental and policy landscapes that have contributed to the surge in childhood obesity. We need to implement a specific physical Program for our Kids
  17. 17. Diabetes Type 2 affect Latinos and Minorities specially Pre-diabetes Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have &quot;pre-diabetes&quot; -- blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. There are 54 million people in the United States who have pre-diabetes. Diabetes Risk Tes t Take our diabetes risk test to see if you are at risk for developing diabetes. Diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. If you are a member of one of these ethnic groups, you need to pay special attention to this test Source:American Diabetes Association
  18. 18. Diabetes Type 2 Prevention <ul><li>How to prevent or delay diabetes </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-diabetes is a serious medical condition that can be treated. The good news is that the recently completed Diabetes Prevention Program study conclusively showed that people with pre-diabetes can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by making changes in their diet and increasing their level of physical activity </li></ul>Source:American Diabetes Association

  22. 22. THE BRAIN MUSCLE WORKOUT FOR KIDS @ SCHOOLS
  23. 23. THE BRAIN MUSCLE WORKOUT FOR KIDS @ SCHOOLS <ul><li>Our children will have a specific efficient physical program throughout the whole year. </li></ul><ul><li>The Goals that they will achieve: </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their cardiovascular system </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their balance and coordination </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their strength and stamina </li></ul><ul><li>Perform better in school </li></ul><ul><li>Be More health conscious </li></ul><ul><li>Regular seminars about nutrition </li></ul><ul><li>Make families involved </li></ul>
  24. 24. The Brain Muscle Workout For Kids 1.-It has been the process of over 8,000 hours of individual training & research 2.-Consists of over 2,000 exercises that will be selected for the specific grade The Brain Muscle Workout Program is not planned to REPLACE but rather INTEGRATE with the current physical educational programs and therefore make our children more effective and efficient to fight against diabetes type 2 an obesity
  25. 25. The Brain Muscle Workout How does it work
  26. 26. Brain activity is maximum when we perform a balanced and coordinated movement
  27. 27. Why Balance and Coordination are so important? <ul><li>Brain Studies </li></ul><ul><li>The cerebellum, the area of the brain responsible for voluntary physical movement is connected by neurons to all parts of the cortex, the area of the brain responsible for higher order thinking. Nearly 80 studies have suggested a strong link between the movement and memory, spatial perception, language, attention, emotion, nonverbal cues, and decision-making (Jensen, 1998). </li></ul>
  28. 28. The Brain Muscle Workout School Program <ul><li>The Brain Muscle Workout is designed specifically for children to improve in the following areas: </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their cardiovascular system </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their balance </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their coordination </li></ul><ul><li>Improve their strength and stamina </li></ul><ul><li>Helping them reach their ideal weight </li></ul><ul><li>Time recommended per week: 2 45’sessions </li></ul>
  29. 29. Lets analyze The movement The movement requires precise movement execution. The process of coordinating that movement requires 35 muscles actively involved. This will lead the heart to pump blood to those muscles, improving the cardiovascular system as studies suggest
  30. 30. The Brain Muscle Workout Benefits
  31. 31. Improve their coordination Studies have shown that when kids improve their Coordination & Balance that will eventually lead to a better reorganization of the brain (Jensen 1998) Balance & Coordination Will make our kids Play better sports and Perform better academically
  32. 32. Improve their strength and stamina 1.Movements will lead to a better muscle fiber distribution 2. We will add resistance after few weeks 3. Movements will release endorphines and will create stamina
  33. 33. Improve their balance Balance it is very important for the brain, the muscles, the joints and more…. Kids need to develop Spectacular balance when They are growing up
  34. 34. Improve their cardiovascular system When you move your arms and legs at the same time makes the heart to pump blood Throughout the whole body. Therefore kids will improve their Cardiovascular system
  35. 35. Effective to fight against kids depression Exercise is successful to reduce Serotonin Imbalance (studies showing serotonin imbalance causes depression and swings in mood)…
  36. 36. More exercises…..the fact of multitasking is very effective for kids
  37. 37. More exercises…..the fact of multitasking is very effective for kids
  38. 38. Kids Feedback after trying The Brain Muscle Workout
  39. 39. The Process
  40. 40. THE PROGRAM IS A PROCESS INVOLVING DIFFERENT AGENTS INITIAL STAGE TRAINING IMPLEMENTATION MONITORING <ul><li>Define the goals </li></ul><ul><li>Design the exercises </li></ul><ul><li>Set up the timing </li></ul><ul><li>Individuality </li></ul><ul><li>Set up monitoring </li></ul><ul><li>Train the educators </li></ul><ul><li>Open panel of discussion </li></ul><ul><li>Making them part of the success </li></ul><ul><li>Psychology and motivation are a plus </li></ul><ul><li>Once that the exercises have been designed and approved we will select the schools and implement the system </li></ul><ul><li>Year required time:6 months </li></ul><ul><li>Weekly required time: 2 sessions of 45’ </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring the cases </li></ul><ul><li>Blood pressure,heart rate,body fat </li></ul><ul><li>Follow up the specific differences </li></ul><ul><li>Individual differences </li></ul>
  41. 41. The Brain Muscle Workout Professional Endorsements
  42. 42. <ul><li>John Martin, Phd, Professor of Clinical Neurobiology, Columbia University said about the Brain Muscle Workout: </li></ul>The Brain Muscle Workout has been endorsed by prestigious doctors throughout the country We were drawing a correlation with your Brain Muscle Workout and other &quot;multi-joint&quot; exercise, such as Tai Chi, which scientists use to help restore some memory functioning in Alzheimer's and dementia patients. and I asked, although your program hasn't been clinically tested, if it could produce the same effect in the brain, like Tai-Chi. And he said Yes, in fact, your program may be even better because the exercises are more complex.... &quot;The more difficult the movement is, the more brain activity you'll have. Gonzales-Wallace’s Program challenges balance and coordination within a limb and between limbs. It's easier to read Ian Fleming than James Joyce. His is the James Joyce of exercise.&quot;
  43. 43. Other Professional Endorsements <ul><li>Terrance Capistrant, MD, Neurologist Bethesda medical Center </li></ul><ul><li>Mike Sandmann, Physical Therapy, Healtheast </li></ul><ul><li>Alessandro DiRocco,NYU </li></ul><ul><li>Lice Ghilardi,NYU </li></ul><ul><li>Fortunato Battaglia, CUNY </li></ul>
  44. 44. The Brain Muscle Workout In The National Media
  45. 45. The Brain Muscle Workout has been featured in the National Media “ No Brain, No Gain” From the gym to the neuroscience lab, Michael Gonzalez-Wallace shows that jocks can be brainy “ The Workout That Does It All”
  46. 46. THE BRAIN MUSCLE WORKOUT HAS BEEN FEATURED IN KIDS MEDIA AS WELL Exercise the Muscles of the Body . . and Brain Fitness expert Michael Gonzalez-Wallace has developed a new exercise technique to improve the balance, coordination and academic achievement of young adults and children. The program is called the “Brain-Muscle Workout” by continuously teasing the body with balance and coordination challenges, the workout simultaneously stimulates the brain, muscles and nervous system. The workout progresses through four increasingly difficult phases during a 12-week period, so kids with even the shortest attention spans do not get tired of the routine. Workout Boosts Academic Achievement Fitness expert Michael Gonzalez-Wallace has developed a new exercise technique--the Brain-Muscle Workout--scientifically proven to improve the balance, coordination and academic achievement of young adults and children. The key to the program is tied to mental engagement. By continuously teasing the body with balance and coordination challenges, the workout simultaneously stimulates the brain, muscles, and nervous system. The workout progresses through four increasingly difficult phases during a 12-week period. As such, children do not get sick of the routine
