How P.A.R.S. Works:
The Physical Activity Reward System or P.A.R.S. web based family program guarantees increases in physical activity or decreases in sedentarey viewing time without constant parent intervention. P.A.R.S. sends signals from the computer through the walls electrical wiring to control modules located between the electrical outlet and the viewing screen that keeps the electricity from flowing to the viewing screen in its normal state.

While serving as Physical Education and Athletic Director at an elementary and middle school, the Founder of NewWayFitness developed a running program that motivated students to run over twice as much as required and for several consecutive years.
