National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is the perfect time for children and families to get outside and play together! You don’t have to do back flips in the Olympics or throw a football 40 yards down the field to be active and break a sweat. Whether you ride your bike to work or school or chase after your dog in the park, physical activity can be fun and it helps you feel good too.

President Barack Obama issued a proclamation declaring May National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. In that proclamation he calls on all Americans to make daily physical activity, sports participation and good nutrition a priority in their lives.

You’ve probably heard that today in America, one-third of all children and two-thirds of all adults are overweight or obese. We know that physical activity can help build lean muscle, reduce fat, and promote strong bone, muscle and joint development so what are you waiting for? Through her Let’s Move! initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama has formed a coalition of supporters including community and faith based organizations, schools and childcare centers, local governments, and corporations to help end childhood obesity within a generation.

This time of year in most parts of the country, the weather makes is easy to explore America’s great outdoors. So the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition is challenging everyone to pick up a new activity or sport, and help guide your loved ones and neighbors to better health!
