Although the United States is one of the most technologically advanced and industrialized nations in the world, it has fallen into a severe lag behind other countries when it comes to mens fitness and health. You may be interested (and surprised) to learn that in the United States more men are overweight than in any other country in the world. Part of the problem may be the focus of American society on working to achieve that American dream rather than take any time to spend with your friends, family, or even yourself. The most important time of the day is “me time” in which many people take a few moments to relax, or to engage in exercise.Another problem with American men is the level of stress that many of them live under in today’s society. In an up and down economy it can sometimes be difficult to make ends meet, especially if there’s a family involved that must be supported. Rather than exercise or trying other methods of relaxation, many American men find solace by eating too much. The term “too much” is an understatement for some guys, especially with all of the fast food joints available, buffets on every corner and the constant television commercials pounding the term “drive through now open until 1:00 AM” into their minds.Even though America has the highest number of overweight men than any other country, there is still time to do something about it. It is really never too late to take initiative over your physical fitness and health. There are so many options available to help boost and maintain men’s fitness that it is quite easy, with the right motivation and fitness program, for men to lose weight and get back into shape. Some of the weight loss and fitness options available to men include joining a gym or one of the many health clubs available, investing in some home gym equipment, reading up on physical fitness articles and magazines, or even subscribing to a good workout plan. The possibilities are virtually limitless and it just depends on what works best for the individual.
