ABOUT PHIT AMERICA
Create a national 'Movement' to greatly improve the physical and mental health of 50 million children in the USA by providing all kids with increased physical activity in school-based programs and helping children afford to play organized sports. By doing this, we create many more active kids who are healthier and better students.
50 million USA children who are not active to the CDC Physical Activity Standards and are battling America's pandemic, 'physical inactivity'. This pandemic has resulted in USA Kids being ranked last in physical health among 38 'rich' countries in a survey by UNICEF.
The 'Inactivity Pandemic' - USA kids are not active at home anymore. 'Play' has mostly evaporated. And, the second place where kids learn physical activity skills, school physical education programs, have been eliminated or cut dramatically. The result - the only thing kids move consistently is their thumbs'.
PHIT AMERICA goes 'where all the kids are' and rebuilds physical eduction and physical activity programs in schools. Our AMPED, PLAY TENNIS, and PLAY GOLF programs improve children's physical and mental health. And, by getting kids more active, we are creating PHIT KIDS who are healthier, smarter and happier.
PHIT AMERICA has already created over 740,000 PHIT KIDS in over 1300 schools nationwide. These kids are realizing the tremendous benefits of 'The Miracle Drug', physical activity.
Physical activity is the closest thing we have to a 'Wonder Drug'

OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
THE PHIT ACT
This is where our name come from. PHIT stands for Personal Health Investment Today.
The PHIT Act is legislation pending in Congress that would allow Americans to use their pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses.
PHIT America is very supportive of this legislation but now focuses on helping kids locally through our school-based programs.
