Over they past 30 years, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled among adolescents. The percent of adolescents aged 12-19 who are obese increased from 5% in 1980 to nearly 21% in 2012. A common cause of this, is that 1 in 3 children do not get the daily exercise they need.
Gyms, spin studios, and yoga studios in the south bay are offering discounts to students in high school and college. They hope that giving these discounts to students will cause more of them to start going to the gym and form healthy habits.
In interviewing members and employees from FitOn Cycling Studios, Bay Club, and SoHo Yoga, we got an inside look and personal opinions as why student discounts are offered.
**Mention the Mustang Morning News next time you go to FitOn Cycling Studios for a special discount**
