The battle of the bulge is a fight that has waged practically since the dawn of man. But, even more than that, there seems to have been an awakening that people need to be focused on their health.

The U.S. is one of the most obese nations on the planet. Millions are dying from heart disease and weight-related illnesses every year. The sad part is that many of these deaths could be prevented if we would just take better care of ourselves. With that knowledge, we have seen a wide variety of fitness-oriented businesses crop up in Cabarrus County and across the country.

There are so many ways to exercise. Some believe in the tried and true methods exhibited at the local gym, while others prefer more unorthodox or extreme measures, like Burn Boot Camp, CrossFit training and even kickboxing and martial arts.

So, what is available here in our county? What is a good method for you? We all know that physical fitness is important, but some of us just don’t know where to begin.

Not to worry. Cabarrus Magazine is here with the answers this month as we examine the world of physical fitness in Cabarrus County and the many different opportunities available to get in shape. We’ll examine more extreme places, like Burn Boot Camp. And did you know you can learn self-defense and get in shape at the same time? We’ll talk about that too, as well as the fact that you can also exercise while ‘cutting a rug!’

So put down that doughnut and give your fingers a workout as you flip (or click) through this positively physical issue of Cabarrus Magazine! Feel the burn!
