Oprah’s Trainer Flexes Muscles for McDonald’s

CHICAGO McDonald’s Corp. has entered into an exclusive partnership with Bob Greene, exercise physiologist and Oprah Winfrey’s personal trainer, to educate the public about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

The Oak Brook, Ill., fast-food chain has developed a program in which Greene will offer his expertise about health and fitness through educational materials such as tray liners and booklets available at McDonald’s restaurants.

McDonald’s healthy lifestyles program has been an ongoing campaign focused on menu choice, education and physical activity.

The announcement that Greene has signed up with the program comes at time when McDonald’s and other fast-food chains have been blamed for the obesity problems among children in America.
