ANNOTATION

 

         In recent years the prevalence of obesity in developed countries has increased to the point that some authorities talk about obesity epidemics. According to data in 2014 more than 1.9 billion adults worldwide were overweight, with over 600 million being obese. Obesity is strongly correlated with the morbidity of diseases with a high social impact, such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. There is also a scientifically proven strong correlation between a sedentary way of life and those medical conditions. An active way of living and improving physical fitness are the most successful strategies to deal with those problems. People who engage regularly in some kind of recreational sports activity improve dramatically their overall health status and wellbeing. In recent years a stable trend has been established towards increasing the level of physical activity among all social and age groups. The number of fitness facilities is growing in all developed countries. Accordingly, the labour market is hungry for fitness experts.
