THE 'ROOTS' OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

 WHERE DO KIDS LEARN BASIC PHYSICAL SKILLS? 

CHILDREN LEARN BASIC SKILLS AT TWO PLACES

  1.  AT HOME WITH PARENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS
    2.  IN SCHOOL IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS

 AT HOME, 'PLAY' HAS MOSTLY EVAPORATED

DO YOU THINK THIS WILL HAPPEN?
  • NEARLY 50% OF SCHOOLS HAVE ELIMINATED PHYSICAL EDUCATION

  • EVEN IF PE STILL EXISTS, IT HAS BEEN CUT DOWN DRAMATICALLY

  • THE AVERAGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BUDGET FOR PE IS $462 PER YEAR

  • SCHOOLS HAVE ALSO CUT BACK RECESS AS WELL

 IN SCHOOLS, KIDS SIT ALL DAY AND ARE SEDENTARY 

THE RESULT: KIDS ARE NOT ACTIVE AT HOME OR IN SCHOOL

  • OUR KIDS ARE INACTIVE, UNHEALTHY AND ARE HEALTHCARE TIME-BOMBS

  • CHILDREN NEED TO MOVE FOR AN ACTIVE AND HEALTHY MIND AS WELL

  • LOOK AT THE 'INACTIVITY PANDEMIC' RESEARCH. OUR KIDS ARE IN BAD SHAPE

THE SOLUTION: GO TO 'WHERE ALL THE KIDS ARE', SCHOOLS

  • THIS IS THE BEST AND MOST ECONOMICAL WAY TO IMPROVE CHILDREN'S HEALTH

  • PHIT AMERICA IS DOING THIS EVERY DAY. WE HAVE HELPED REBUILD OVER 1100 SCHOOL'S PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
