  As America's Premier Health Advocate Dr. Derek Alessi's core belief is that health and fitness are not a result of gimmicks, hype or the latest butt buster. Instead they are achieved by understanding the physiological complexities of the body and the synergistic role that the right kinds of exercise along with supportive nutrition can play in unlocking the healthy body that is inside every one of us. Concerned with the shape of today's youth, Dr. Alessi is now conducting seminars for concerned parents who would like to know more about the complexities of helping their children lead a healthy life in today's challengeing environment. He has also opened a private practiced called Alessi Fitness for Kids that works with children between the ages of 5-13 and their parents.
