For more than a century, America has been viewed as one of the greatest nations in the world- and still is. Boasting that our standard of living, abundant resources, and dedication to improving our citizen’s quality of health should make America one of the healthiest nations in the world. Unfortunately, the average lifestyle of many Americans has proved otherwise. Over the last four decades, we have seen an alarming increase in the rates of obesity in both adult and youth populations. According to recent data from the CDC, the U.S. adult obesity rate now stands at 42.4 percent, which marks the first time in history that the national rate has surpassed 40%.
Health Fitness Revolution, a movement spearheaded by the Samir Becic Foundation 501(c)3, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to making America a healthier nation. Through our vision of bringing together thousands of people in the community, the Samir Becic Foundation aims to change the way people think about their health and fitness. We are dedicated to improving access to health information, and incorporating proper exercise and nutrition practices within the very fabric of family and society.
The Samir Becic Foundation achieves its goals by arming Americans with the tools to live a healthy lifestyle through a variety of channels around the community. The foundation hosts events and workshops in schools, community centers, corporations, and churches in hopes of educating children and their parents about the fundamentals of physical fitness and nutrition.
