It is our desire to be a strong partner in the community and at Nautilus, Inc. we believe that every person should have access to a healthy lifestyle. It is in that spirit that the Nautilus Cares program is dedicated to combating the physical inactivity epidemic in America’s youth by breaking through economic barriers which prevent young people from discovering a passion for sports, active hobbies and childhood play. Our focus is on at-risk and underserved youth who are often denied access to sports leagues, swimming lessons, dance or karate instruction, summer camp experiences, physical education and other similar activities rooted in fitness and movement.
Today, physical inactivity is linked to approximately 5.3 million premature deaths worldwide each year – more than tuberculosis, lung cancer, HIV/AIDS or traffic accidents (Designed to Move). We believe that active kids are healthier, happier, sleep better and do better in school, and by fostering a love of healthy habits and a passion for sports and activity early on, have a better chance of becoming healthier adults.
