This Sunday evening, Dr. Galati will talk with Dan Campolieta, jazz musician and composer by day, and exercise and health enthusiast when he's not making music.
Over the past few years, Dan has become motivated to engage himself and others in exercise and fitness. He has become involved with a company called Beachbody, where he is a coach for their exercise programs, such as Insanity and P90X.
Dan has been able to influence his peers, including the genX and the Y generations (born after 1981), leading by example with regard to exercise and nutrition. Research clearly indicated that the current 20 year olds are at an increased risk of obesity related medical complications, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Diseases once seen only in the elderly, are now seen at an increasing rate in those 40 years younger. There is a need, more than ever, to educate the youth on increasing physical activity, and controlling their dietary intake with better selection of foods.
