For the first time in three years, obesity rates in North America are falling. The ACE predicts that the fitness industry will continue to rally government, businesses and communities in the fight against obesity. Expect a greater push to get people physically active in 2012. The result? More money spent on programs, fitness trainers and facilities to entice people to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
