There’s a story being picked up by a lot of radio stations, which is where I heard it, about a study linking time spent in automobiles to obesity. University of Illinois professor Sheldon Jacobson says there’s a 99% correlation between the two. Increased creature comforts in cars, and readily available drive-thru fast food are major contributors to the problem.
Here at CrossFit Fenway we lose our parking for part of the day at least 81 days of the year. This provides a convenient reason to avoid using your auto. Also, we live in the city, but not just any city, we live in The Walking City. There’s plenty of access to public transportation, and Boston’s becoming more bike friendly all the time. Getting to class with your own two feet is a great warm up too. Whether the Red Sox are home or away, walking, running, or biking is clearly a better option than driving.
