GetSweaty.com is proud to announce a partnership with The America On the Move® Foundation, Inc. (AOMF), an evidence-based nonprofit leading the fight against the obesity epidemic by providing easy-to-adopt solutions for individuals, families, organizations, and communities.
 

AOMF’s research shows that small, specific changes in food and physical activity can have a positive effect on health and effectively stop weight gain. Through its science-based programs and outreach, AOM aims to support Americans of all ages manage their weight effectively through energy balance.

For example, the foundation’s research-based programs encourage people to move
more and eat healthier by making two small daily changes:
             Take 2,000 more steps (about one mile)
             Eat 100 fewer calories (about a tablespoon of butter).
Successful implementation of these two small changes is proven to help stop the average national adult weight gain of one to two pounds a year.

The self-administered web program includes activity log, virtual trails, food diary, downloadable tools, daily dietary and activity tips, goal setting, and more. By registering, you will also receive a daily email with an informative tip or idea to help in your healthy living program. 

With over 500,000 registered users having taken 87,107,877,255 steps, the America On the Move online, health-oriented community allows anyone to experience the simplicity, power, and success of making small changes to live a healthier life. 

America On The Move is free to users so it’s easy to start making small changes to your life today. Please visit www.americaonthemove.org.

One in three people in Washington State are at risk for developing diabetes, yet many don't know they're at risk or they aren't doing anything about it.

Up to 1.4 million people in Washington already have pre-diabetes. They are overweight, have high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Some doctors have started writing prescriptions for gym memberships, just to get high-risk patients off the couch.
