(CBS) — A Chicago man plans a long bicycle trek to draw awareness to keeping kids fit.
27-year-old Tom Schneider runs T.R.U.E. Fit clinics all over Chicago, mostly on the West Side and one location in the North Shore at New Trier High School.
T.R.U.E. Fit stands for “The Resourceful Use of Exercise.” Schneider says it is a concept that kids should learn early. He says growing up outside Boston, his parents never even had a car, so he rode his bike everywhere. He says it is different for kids today and their lifestyle is way too sedentary with smart phones and the internet.
