Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2011/05/24 - Our goal is to provide high quality physical training and advanced testing services to kids, athletes and non-athletes alike, creating benchmarks and incentives that encourage individuals to take charge of their own health, optimize physical activity.
In response to the growing problem of obesity and diabetes among children, Venatol PSI, a company that develops unique and innovative wellness programs for individuals and corporations, announced the launch of a new program targeted to nursery and school aged kids.
PSI Kids is a new wellness program dedicated to helping children from KG to High School experiencing problems with weight and increasing diabetes. With national figures pointing to an alarming growth in the prevalence of obesity and diabetes in children (overall, kids today are three times more likely to be overweight, than they were twenty years ago), the PSI Coach team headed by the prominent Sports Scientist Dr. Mark Foster and the medical supervisor Dr. Bill Stone from US and the Chairman of Venatol decided that it was time to establish a program that would also help parents and teachers be involved in their children’s progress.
The PSI team has been successful in implementing strategic techniques and programs to help adults get fit in the workplace and at home. Other big parts are the PSI Athletes program and the PSI corporate program.
In April 2011, PSI experts began meeting with UAE schools to share their vision and receive feedback on the general plan and objective. Given the positive reception from schools, PSI decided to officially launch this new program on May 24, 2011, with private UAE schools.
“We are very excited about the interest that has been shown by UAE schools about our programs and concepts,” commented Dr. Barbara Urasch, Chairman of Venatol PSI provider of PSI KIDS/Youth program. “Based on our past success in establishing wellness and health programs, we believe that this new program can truly help kids, teens and their parents face this growing problem.”
Based on the success of the pilot program, PSI KIDS’ long term goal is to establish health and fitness programs for school aged kids in all parts of the country.
PSI a member of the Venatol brand of companies’ professional team of lifestyle coaches, personal trainers and nutrition consultants and scientists provides any company with a turn-key fitness and wellness program.
