State of Readiness
A typical American adult works 47 stressful hours per week and as technology continues to improve, the need for physical exertion on the job continues to decrease. Longer work weeks, fast-paced lifestyles, family commitments, as well as other reasons pose a significant challenge to maintaining individual health. These challenges have resulted in drastic increase of chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular disease, heart disease and obesity.
