About

This project is ultimately about creating a non-profit organization known as the Motivated Obesity Reduction, Education, and Prevention Endeavor.  As an advocacy group, we will push for legislative changes and will take real ACTION to help get our youth and adults healthy!.
     This project is set up in three (3) phases, or small attainable goals.  Since Kickstarter is an all or nothing, I set low goals, with hopes to surpass these goals through your support.
     Until now, I have spent significant funds and have invested volumes time helping other teachers, students and parents with Physical Education and fitness ideas.  I have done this through YouTube videos and my website (MrGym.com), that I built from scratch with no web experience. MrGym.com gets several million hits a year, and I receive a lot of physical education questions from all over the world!  This site is arguably the #1 physical education site on the Internet.  What makes it so good is the personal attention and experience that I provide.  Yes, some sites have more activities and pages, but that does not mean better!  Much of their material is visitor added, and unfortunately it is NOT always good material.  I cut through all that, and my material is tested and appropriate.  I have also just begun creating videos that I share on YouTube which helps "show" others exactly how activities should work.
     Now, the problem is that I need to take my website and videos to the next level.  Here are my goals:
     Phase 1
   1.  Hire help in consolidating my websites LyfeProgram.com and IdeaProgram.com into my main website (MrGym.com).         
   2.  Hire help in producing a professional video that will gain the attention of local, state and more importantly federal educational agencies, news channels, The Today Show to name a few.      
   3.  Use these platforms to take ACTION to make appropriate changes in how we attack childhood obesity! 
     Phase 2  
    4. I would like to have a leading philanthropist or passionate stakeholder take the iPad app that I have created for assessing and analyzing student fitness scores, and make it available to ALL physical education instructors at no charge!
     Phase 3
     
1. I will endeavor to make real changes in legislation that will clearly motivate our country toward a healthy standard through education!  This starts with our youth.  I will lead this mission with the formation of the Motivated Obesity, Reduction, Education and Prevention Endeavor!  (MorePE.com)     The bottom line of my project is this:  Everyone talks prevention when it comes to addressing childhood obesity.  Unfortunately, there is great failure in those attempting to take action, and the ones who do, are approaching it improperly!     Politicians push for change, but lack the knowledge to insure it is carried out correctly in the educational arena.  State departments make decisions and use resources based on people who have not been actively engaged in a school for years, or are out of touch with reality.  Folks, I know physical education!  With my years of first hand, currently teaching experience, I have what it takes to attack childhood obesity.  It requires ACTION with a plan, and that is what I intend to make happen!

 Thank you for taking the time to read this.  The allocated space limits my providing the details of changes that need made.  However, through this Kickstarter program, I will create a video and a platform that will address all the ideas and action that is needed to attack childhood obesity! 

Risks and challenges

Risks of my project:
The only obstacle I see is in getting the word out! We are aware of the problem, yet lack a leader who wants to address it! However, all I need is for you who have the same goal, to join with me, come together and let’s create a MOVEMENT that will lead to CHANGE!
