About Dr. Applebaum
Dr. Applebaum's National Fitness Initiative
Health is a function of participation. Participation is a function of fitness. tm
I will make this brief. As a physician, I am concerned about the current state of and trends in national fitness. They are worsening. Unfortunately, so is healthcare funding. I see it daily. I know it is happening. As dollars are committed to other priorities, fewer will be available to care for you, for me and for the ones we love.

Diseases associated with unhealthy eating and inactivity are easily preventable.
Here is the initiative:
Think of this as the Wear 'Em Out Campaign tm.
Put on your training gear and wear 'em out of the house. This way you are not near your refrigerator, pantry and other temptations. Also, try to wear 'em out from use so you will need to replace them.
For a mere three months, live the fitness lifestyle. Eat properly, train regularly. For me this averages to less than 30 minutes per day (about the time it takes to watch a TV show which you can still do while exercising, if you must). Encourage your family and friends to do the same. Create your own program if you want. Have me or someone else develop one for you. Just try it. The worst that can happen is that it won't be right for you. If it is right for you, keep at it. Your participation in life's offerings will be enhanced, your life will be better and you will prevent or mitigate some really awful diseases that make life miserable.
