Subsidise Gyms

Subsidise Gyms

Give every Maltese citizen a subsidy to subscribe to a gym so that we fight the problem of Obesity. maltese people are the most obese people and least athletic in the world. This subsidy would be an initiative to get people moving.


Subsidising gym memberships will not do much to solve obesity. 'Lazy' people will not start exercising just because of a reduced membership fee. I believe a better way of tackling this problem would be to tax unhealthy junk food and using that same tax money to lower the price of healthy foods. Not and ideal system admittedly, but one that works better.
