Embrace Activity During National Physical Fitness and Sports Month

President's Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition

Each May the U.S. observes National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. Since 1983, each President has publicly recognized and promoted the importance of physical activity to good overall health. This year, President Biden followed suit and issued a Proclamation commemorating this year’s observance, saying, “When we invest in our health, we foster healthy homes, more productive communities, and a more resilient society for generations to come.” With this in mind, now is the perfect time to evaluate your health and take steps (literally!) towards leading a more active lifestyle.
