/R E P E A T/ - A cure for inactive youth: video games to make you move! - Nationally Recognized Youth Fitness Chain Opens first location in Newfoundland

    ST. JOHN'S, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - The cure for inactive kids is now coming to
St. John's! St. John's resident Shelley Moores is launching the first
Newfoundland franchise of Bulldog Interactive Fitness for Youth. These state
of the art fitness facilities have recently been covered in the national media
such as Chatelaine magazine, the Globe and Mail, CBC Newsworld, and Canada AM.
    This past summer, Healthy Kids Canada gave our national youth a failing
grade in obesity and activity. In 2004, Newfoundland and Labrador was
announced as having the second highest provincial rate of youth obesity.
    "There's no where in St. John's for kids to go and exercise without
parental supervision. We are offering the kids in St. John's a whole new
fitness experience." Said Moore, "The whole concept is made to get kids off
their butts, but allows them to keep playing video games, which they love."
    Where Bulldog Interactive Fitness sets itself apart from other avenues of
youth fitness is the goal of fun and personal development. Using interactive
video games, personalized programs and equipment specifically designed for
youth, Bulldog has become the innovator in youth fitness.
    Members and guests can bust-a-move on video dance machines or climb to
the top of Mt. Everest on the rotating climbing wall. The state-of-the-art
youth circuit equipment is designed just for youth, and so are the certified
youth trainers that are on the floor supervising at all times. Bulldog has
programs designed to offer first-class programs for children aged 3 right on
up to the teens/tweens.
    "The combination of aerobic and resistance equipment allows us the
flexibility to train and counsel inactive youth with weight management
problems and young athletes looking to gain the edge," says President and
Founder Holly Bond. "Our franchisees and their staff are qualified in serving
all aspects of lifestyle management, from nutrition counseling to working with
youth who may have special needs."
    The first Bulldog Interactive Fitness in St. John's, located at the
Torbay Road Mall, launches this weekend with an open house on September 15th
and 16th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
