Scott Parker on Why Many Women Don’t Work Out

ARU Fitness trainer Scott Parker was recently the featured guest on an internet radio show “Survive 365: The Conversation.” He drops some key information and to-do’s for any person with a body (*ahem, that means you). Feel free to skip to the 10 minute mark to skip the excessive FAMU love and get to the content 😉 Well done Parker my son, I’ve taught you well.

Watch out for the Big Girl!

A study done by The Obesity Research Center found that approximately 50% of adult African American women are considered obese by prevailing standards. Moreover, this prevalence appears to be increasing. Obesity has an important influence on the development of a variety of morbidities among African American women. The effect of obesity on longevity among African American women is less clear. The reasons for the very high prevalence of obesity among African American women are unknown. Data supporting various putative genetic, physiological, and psychosocial influences are discussed.

The above statement made me think about some of the other posts on our Alumni sites. Aside from the obvious health risk, is this part of the reason why women have such a hard time finding a good man?

Are the successful independent women having a girls night out at their favorite restaurant while the “good men” are at the 24 hour gym?

Does the stress of being a career-oriented woman and/or single mother make women physically less attractive to her male counterparts?

What are your thoughts?
