U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) visited Beachbody headquarters today to discuss issues relating to the trend of obesity and its effects on our country.
You may be aware of her amazing work on behalf of the people who worked at ground zero immediately following the attacks on 9/11. While much of the government had been at a standstill for weeks, in the final days of the year, Ms. Gillibrand got things done.
Our discussion centered around strategies to motivate people to make exercise and proper diet a part of their lives, issues surrounding childhood obesity, and the prospect of making preventative lifestyle choices more affordable.
She's an impressive person (plus an actual Slim in 6 success story, and I am told her sister's doing P90X!) and she is a real force for positive progress in the U.S. Senate on the issues to which Beachbody is committed.
