Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, October -THE LETHtMOai HERALD IS BOB DAKU, 540 DIEPPE BLVD., BEING TESTED FOR FITNESS BY PAT O'BRIAN Canadians are a flabby lot For some, coughing strenuous exercise Are the majority of Canadians so idle that coughing is their only major exercise? Participaction Canada's national co ordinator Russ Kisby, says so many Canadians are physically unfit he wonders if smoking is such a bad habit after all at least it induces feeble exercise in the form of a smoker's cough. All joking aside, Canadians are in a truly deplorable physical shape, Mr. Kisby told a YMCA fitness clinic on the weekend. "In almost any study, Canadians rank much lower in fitness tests than said Mr. Kisby. "There's, no question that we're unfit and that we're getting worse." But we aren't born out of shape, added Mr. Kisby. Up to age six, Canadian children compare favorably with those of other countries. "However, our schools seem to be ruining youngsters' fitness through inadequate or absolutely no physical activity programs. Generally, people reach their fitness peak between 22 and 26. In Canada, we're at our peak around age 12 and go downhill from there." Females between the ages of 20 and 29 are the most unfit segment of society, Mr. Kisby said. "The problem is compound- ed as the women bearing and rearing the next generation are our worst physical specimens and are probably engraining their habits of physical inactivity in the next generation." Our sloth is costing us millions, the Participaction coor- dinator added. Canada spends more of its gross national product on health care than any other country. Canadians' problem is that they equate relaxation with recreation. One of our number one games is playing cards, Mr. Kisby said, and if we want to take it easy at that, we can buy a new gadget'which will shuffle and deal for us. "The average Canadian spends 25 hours before the TV he said. And milch of that time is spent snacking. No wonder 000 Canadians die annually of heart disease. Despite all the facts and figures, most Canadians are still not aware of the fitness situation, said Mr. Kisby. "There's a great mis perception in this country. People just don't think they've got a problem with fitness." In a test, 94 per cent of men interviewed said they were in good shape; in actuality, only 18 per cent of them were. Of the 92 per cent of the women who claimed fitness, only 16 per cent measured up to standards. Making Canadians aware of their fitness levels and motivating them to attain better condition is the job of Par- ticipaction, he said." Families should pursue common fitness program Families should be en- couraged to pursue at least one common physical ac- tivity, a fitness consultant with the Alberta department of culture, youth and recrea- tion said Friday. ..Speaking to delegates at the family fitness clinic held this weekend at the YMCA, Dr. Hubert Dhanaraj said fitness should be a means of togetherness and enjoyment for all families, no matter how large or small. "Fitness is a way to develop our said Dr. Dhanaraj, "so that within ourselves we have energy reserves. With such reserves, we won't be exhausted at the end of the day. We'll be able to live a full life, with the ability to take on new activities." "As units within society, families rarely get to the point of talking about he said. "Interests are a key fac- tor and naturally not all members of the family will have the same -interests. However, families should identify at least one activity in which all members of all ages could come together and work towards he said. cautioned the fitness consultant, "we cannot sit back virtuously and assume a once weekly workout is -The Herald Family enough. For it to be of any value, physical activity must be undertaken seriously at least three times a week." added Mr. Dhanaraj, "is essentially recreation. People must find an activity they enjoy and pur- sue fitness.through Anxiety is increasing OTTAWA (CP) Anxiety about life and living appears to be increasing, and even good social developments are causing upheaval and distress says a Winnipeg psychiatrist. Dr. Harry Prosen, a Univer- sity of Manitoba professor, said family breakdown, com- petitive, stress and the threats of the nuclear age are making it more difficult than ever for people, to cope.

YOUR TRUST IN ME IS APPRECIATED VANCOUVER (CP) The divisional produce manager for Woodward's Stores Ltd. says bulk buying of produce is so popular with shoppers that the company is revising its food marketing concept. Al Eadie said in an inter- view that savings offered through bulk sales by the sack or carton were achiev- ed because warehouse, and store handling costs were eliminated. During a two week period this fall, Woodward's sold 4.5 million pounds of produce directly from the farm com- pared with 1.5 million pounds normally sold in smaller lots during the same period in other years, said Mr. Eadie. "We took a gamble that the WAS SLAVE REFUGE DARTMOUTH, N.S.
