May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
From the Department of Health and Human Services:
An active lifestyle, combined with healthy eating, is the number one way to prevent obesity, and key to preventing a host of serious obesity-related diseases, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. That’s why the First Lady calls her campaign to end the childhood obesity epidemic in a generation, “Let’s Move.”
During National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, the President is challenging every American to make physical activity, fitness, and sports something they try to do every day, whether it’s playing on a softball team, training for a race, walking the dog, or working in the garden.
