Gymnastics propose to revive on radio and TV
The Deputy of legislative Assembly of Leningrad region Vladimir Petrov has proposed to revive in the air of the national television and radio gymnastics. A proposal he sent to the Minister of communications and mass communications of the Russian Federation Nikolai Nikiforov.
“Instead of one or two blocks could be placed a few gears with the entry of gymnastics. This will be a good step for our country towards real concerns about the health of the nation and future generations”, — quotes the text of the letter, the Agency “RIA Novosti”.
It is proposed to run the units of production exercises on the main TV and radio channels during morning and work hours.
Petrov notes that most people are “chained to their office chairs and cabinets”, and a sedentary lifestyle “negatively affects the health of hundreds of thousands and millions of workers across the country.”
Petrov stressed that this practice is widely applicable in the Western countries and in Japan.
“Healthy and vigorous employee has higher productivity and as a consequence is of greater interest from the point of view of economic attractiveness in the eyes of the employer and in the eyes of the state,” he writes.
