According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s. Today, about one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) has obesity.
There's a big difference among the options of being big boned, overweight, and being considered obese, but most Americans don't really know the defining differences. It can be hard to tell by looking, or even by standard measurements, if someone is teetering on the edge of being overweight into the realm of obesity. This is where InBody comes to the rescue.
With the 4th of July just around the corner, most red-blooded Americans are packing up and hitting the road.
Whether you're leaving town or have a stellar staycation planned, these health tips and tricks are for you.

The plank is a perfect full-body exercise and if you're doing it right you'll be strengthening and toning your arms, core, and legs. If you're usual routine of sit-ups isn't doing the job in helping you get six pack abs, then integrate these moves into your ab work.

Burpees are an awesome, full-body movement that are a killer addition to any high intensity work out. Think about it- you've got a squat, an explosive jump, a push-up, and another explosive movement to finish. This dynamic move is hitting your major muscle groups and when done to pace it will give you the cardio burst you need to stay heart healthy. The more intense the movement, the longer the impact in both your overall health and your daily calorie burn.
