Fitness Guru Blames Computers / PS3 for Child Obesity
FitnessGear101.com is a growing fitness community run by personal trainer and blogger, Anna. It gives fair advice on everything from jogging outdoors to grunting in the gym. But now the fitness help site has taken a confrontational swipe at gadget heads...
A recent article on Anna's blog blames this winter's hot Christmas gifts like PS3 for a rise in child obesity. Maybe she purposely left out this year's equally hot gadget, Nintendo's Wii, because Wii's motion sensitive controller will have video gamers shaking and burning calories like bugs under a magnifying glass.
Has FitnessGear101.com Become Tired?
The same article characterizes online shoppers, gamers or anyone who works "hunched over a computer" as pale-skinned, basement dwelling vermin who need to get off their butts, and, as she suggests, go shopping of all things.
In her blog Anna also has the audacity to suggest that the number of online shoppers will escalate "higher than Santa's reindeer". But, that's simply ridiculous! Everybody knows Santa's reindeer are magic, therefore can fly higher than anything they choose. Get a clue Anna, you just can't do better than magic.
