The article presents a study of the U.S. population, where almost 68 percent of people were found to be overweight or obese, showing exercise dependence symptoms. It suggests training of exercise science (ES) students for elimination of overweight and obesity and their future role as personal fitness, group aerobics and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation trainers for a healthy nation. It concludes that male ES students in the U.S. are more exercise addicted than non-ES students.
