Challenges To Meet Them: 

Childhood obesity has been called a national disaster, with physical inactivity — compounded by young people putting in numerous hours a week in front of the TV or computer — one of the main contributors. But what if screen time could be combined with exercise and healthy eating? Would kids work out if they could do it while playing video games? That's the premise behind Bulldog Interactive Fitness For Youth, a growing Canadian chain of fitness clubs where kids pedal bikes hooked up to PlayStation racing games, use rowing machines to escape killer fish and try out their moves on the DDR Dance Machines.

Bulldog was opened in Barrie in 2007.
