The purpose of the "President's Quest" program is to heighten children's awareness of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle by inspiring them to exercise in a clean and safe workout environment and showing them that eating healthy can be fun and delicious.

TOMS RIVER, N.J., May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Club Metro USA is proud to announce that the first "President's Quest" was held at Club Metro USA, Toms River, NJ. Kindergarten students from Toms River Nursery School along with parents and teachers visited the club on April 28, 2011 where they had an opportunity to participate in a fitness and wellness program designed to introduce the fun of exercising, good nutrition and entrepreneurism in the fitness and wellness industry.

The program was led by Co-Founder and CEO Emile Farina and included the expertise of Club Metro's certified trainers.

Students, parents and teachers were led through an exercise program that included team coordination and competition.  They were introduced to the key essentials of healthy and learning one day at a time! All participates had a taste from Club Metro's healthy Juice Bar and were exposed to how they can be an entrepreneur.

A Healthy Outlook

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, overweight and obesity in children are significant public health problems in the United States. The number of adolescents who are overweight has tripled since 1980 and the prevalence among younger children has more than doubled.

"There's no question that wellness is the wave of the future and fitness should be part of everyone's lifestyle," says Farina. "We passionately believe that getting children at a young age and teaching them the importance of exercise and nutrition is the key to a healthy lifestyle."

"Our goal at Club Metro is to encourage every Club Metro USA location to implement this program as a way to give back to the communities they serve. We are leading by example," says Farina.

The only stipulation is that the principal must work out with the children!
