Realizing the importance of good health and physical fitness should start at home. Liveyourself.com makes it easy for families to take charge of their health and well-being by making health club quality Treadmills and Ellipticals affordable for home use.

For millions of Americans who struggle with health and weight issues but get lost in the shuffle of the daily grind, their well-being is often relegated to a mere after thought and an unused membership at the local gym.

Recognizing that for many people, caring for one’s well-being is more successful when done at home with the support of family, Liveyourself.com is positioned to make state-of-the-art, health club quality treadmills and ellipticals available to the general public.

According to the American Obesity Association, “approximately 127 million adults in the U.S. are overweight, 60 million are obese, and 9 million severely obese. Even more alarming is the fact that about 15.5 percent of adolescents (ages 12 to 19) and 15.3 percent of children (ages 6 to 11) are also obese.” Excluding genetics and certain diseases, scientists tell us that some of the causes for obesity are unhealthy foods, little or no physical activity, and personal behavior.

David Satcher, Surgeon General, suggests another often overlooked reason for obesity in children when he states that obesity is “a community responsibility. When there are no safe, accessible places for children to play or adults to walk, jog, or ride a bike, that is a community responsibility. When school lunchrooms or office cafeterias do not provide health and appealing food choices, that is a community responsibility."

Andrea Elkouby, Liveyourself.com founder, says, “I envisioned providing a service where the average American could achieve physical well-being and essentially change their lives right in the comfort and privacy of their own homes, in the middle of their busy lives, and all on a working class budget. Imagine America without the pervasive depression, diabetes, and heart disease statistics. These are all directly connected to the level of physical activity.”

These ideas clearly illustrate that Americans everywhere should look at their health and well-being, not only as an individual concern but as an issue which affects the entire family.
