PHIT America is a partnership dedicated to promoting increased physical activity and fitness in order to improve the health of Americans, especially children. PHIT America has produced a report on the “Inactivity Pandemic,” which is a health crisis with far-reaching implications. More and more, kids’ physical activity is limited to tapping and swiping on their electronic devices, and this puts kids at risk for developing a variety of problems.
This report shows the reasons why increasing kids’ physical activity and participation in sports provides many benefits, including better heart and lung health, stronger muscles and bones, healthier weight and even better academic performance.
