Dancing to fitness
04 Dec 2006 - LP
The NHS is likely to give dance classes to tackle declining fitness levels and counter a national obesity crisis according to the Independent. Trials have been carried out costing £2.5 million and the DoH said that dance classes have proven to be very successful. It is not clear how the people who can dance on the NHS' cost will be chosen. Can anyone wishing to avoid paying for their dance classes or gym membership sign up? What if some people do not like dancing and will demand their exercise costs to be paid by the NHS?
Such initiatives promote a society that depends on the authorities for every move in life. People cannot depend on the Government to get fit but have to get themselves up and moving for an improvement in the health of the nation.
