BURBANK, CA. “Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.” reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Team X, a family of ten (10) renowned champion inline speed skaters has taken a lead role in the ongoing battle against this devastating trend in modern American life.
“The simple truth is that talking about childhood obesity and citing statistics and even revealing the many health risks it makes worse has not, does not and will not solve the problem. What our years of competitive speed skating has revealed is that by making physical activity fun and leading by example is the most effective and probably only solution.” said team leader Stacy Akana.
Fully committed to help resolve America’s childhood obesity epidemic The Akana family is in production on a documentary film that clearly demonstrates both the many joys and benefits of superb physical fitness in general and inline speed skating in particular. To help advance this project and to bring even more people to the table they have arranged for a very exciting public event April 4th, 2014. It will take place at the Renegade Theatre, 1514 N. Gardner Street, Los Angeles, CA 90046 starting at 7:30 PM. Kicking off the show will be actor and fitness trainer to the stars Jean Paul San Pedro. He will illustrate the fun that is a major part of achieving and maintaining physical fitness and how attainable true fitness is for both children and adults. He will be joined by actor/comedian Allen Rueckert who will illuminate the amazing joy of being fit through insight and comedy. He will also interview all ten of the Akana family.
